Viva Las Vegas!!!!











We are off to the jewelry shows in Vegas, and it's been a trip so far. Cancelled flight and lost luggage, well most of you know that story. So what is a poor girl to do but drag her husband to Walgreens laaaate at night for all the necessities, and then some. Happy beginning to this trip!

Pirate of Ylang 23.....

No, it is not Halloween. No, Lauren was not punched out. She had a rock climbing misshap and is covering up a scratched cornea. No worries, Lauren could sell jewelry with both eyes closed.

Memorial Day 2007: More Rain....


It has been raining and raining and raining...so why should Memorial Day be any different?
The solution is to go to the mall, where we ran into longtime friends (22 years) Danny & Richard, who had just returned from San Francisco.

Rose Gold Rocks at Ylang 23


Nifty ______ Birthday?



You can fill in the blank, but it won't match my friend, the birthday girl, who celebrated last night with a blowout at the Ghost Bar.
Hmmmmm, are you seeing double? She was everywhere!
Happy birthday, darlin'....you go girl!!!

More Mother's Day...


Anyone who knows me, knows that my prized possessions are these mugs made by my kids. I go crazy when I misplace one, and even travel with one or two. They keep me centered .

This Mother's Day, I could have bugged Jake to do his homework, but instead, left him hidden away to work on a "secret project". When he emerged, I had a wonderful addition to my collection. (yes, that's him in a crown, halo and wings).

These shoppers knew what they wanted, and their mom will be thrilled! But we are NOT telling what's inside the package. Our lips are sealed.

Sushi Samba Opening at Galleria...

What do you get when you mix the intrigue of Peru, the sophisticated tastes of Japan and the sexy, hot influence of Brazil? Well, in our Galleria neighborhood, welcome to Sushi Samba. The opening was last night and it was jam packed, so much so that Charles and I will have to go back to sample all the delicacies. Can you hear the music? (ps. and yes, I took the pics!)

Fashionable Toes.....

No, I really don't have a foot fetish, but when my friend came into the store and kicked off her Jimmy Choo's, there was hope that summer was on its way. These fashionable toes have baby blue polish with butterflies. And oh, yes, the foot tattoo is a real one. You go girl!!! And have a Happy Mother's Day!

Having a great time at the Art Ball...

Alysa with "couture to the stars" fashion insider Neva Lindner who was in from NY...




I wore a great piece of bling from the Cathy Waterman trunk show. And my fave Ten Thousand things pinned diamond pendant. This was really a fun benefit...


Our ever so fashionable and charming hostess rescued a lab puppy from the live auction.

Visitors from Minnesota....





I always love it when our out of town friends (who have been shopping with us since the store opened in '85) drop in for a visit. And both wearing their Cathy Waterman large framed angel pendants. The cutest mom and daughter, and we just adore them.
