Hal Rubenstein of InStyle always catches up to "The Look", clothes and jewelry to die for, and in this case it's Leighton Meester in Cathy Waterman jewelry (and yes, by the way, Louis Vuitton) in the new January issue (with a sleek Whitney Houston on the cover). Catch the yellow sapphire bee ring at Ylang 23 where we have an abundance of Waterman jewelry to call out the paramedics over.

A highlight of the holiday season is a visit from a former employee and friend, Shirley, who along with husband Alan, drop off their traditional box of homemade toffee. It. is. lethal to the body, trust me. I restrained myself this year, puts you in sugar shock. Thanks Shirley, Happy New Year!!!!

It's that time when all those shoppers realize that WE CAN'T SHIP ANYMORE BECAUSE WE ARE OUT OF TIME!!!! BUT....Our Gift Card gets everyone sooooooo excited that even if you have shopped, you might want to add one anyway! Let us know, we're here to bail you out!
Coming up for air to report that we can still ship for tomorrow delivery. Not. a. problem.And now, back to the sales floor!
We are in love with Cathy Waterman's now classic pieces, and can remember the introduction of almost every one. In 22 karat gold, or platinum and diamonds, they are memorable and keepsake. Just received a fresh shipment today, whew!!!

Some catalogues age, but ours has been updated and 40 pages are now loaded and ready to flip! 3 more days til Christmas and we are in a state of 'high frappe' to borrow a quote from a friend in Cincinnati (that's you Dee!) Gotta get some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz's and I'm off to the mall again in the morning!

Finally getting the hang of the video portion of my camera, and here's my You Tube Video of Missile Toes, Galleria's Santa on skates who does a back flip and lights the largest indoor Christmas tree in the U.S., right outside Ylang 23's door!
Yes, it's true, she loves the beautiful jewelry from our friends and talented Ten Thousand Things Designers David Rees & Ron Anderson. We have just received a full selection after being totally sold out, so get your Good Fortune here!
How can my Google calendar say "No events today" when I'm up and off to the store to help pick, gift wrap, and ship! Condolences to those friends on the East Coast who are socked in by snow, but we're been around this block before, and trust me, there are solutions. We are shipping and we are emailing juicy looking Gift Cards which you can gift wrap or send directly to the recipient in any amount. No worries, Ylang 23 has you covered!

In another chapter of how to terrorize the dog, Jake has taken to windup dreidels and menorahs. It's always something, and thankfully for Eddie, tonight is the last night. Stay tuned for next year's adventures! Happy Chanukah everyone!!!

Seriously, just when we think we have seen it all, another small treasure arrives. The shoppers are out and the Waterman is flying!

Such a treat to have Chabad Rabbi Dubrowsky and the Akiba singers light the Chanukah candles in the middle of Galleria. The menorah is unarguably the biggest in Texas, and maybe the U.S.? Very beautiful.

It's been a mad dash to get all the Heather Moore ordered for holiday, so here's a hint:

There is always something interesting on Gwneth Paltrow's site Goop, and this week it was under Personalized Gift Suggestions: Good Fortune by Ten Thousand Things. You can buy it in New York, but if you can't get there, we are the only e-tailer of this collection and just love it!!
We had a wonderful time when Cathy Waterman visited to drop off an amazing treasure chest of trunk show goodies. Running our of superlatives, we can only call it: The Ultimate Trunk Show. Husband Eddie joined her later, and we had a relaxing time. Our Eddie (the dog) met her Eddie (the husband), and it was a standoff. Everyone always wants to know what Cathy is wearing, and here you have it all: The Trail of Tears Cuff; her Name Bracelet with her kids names in platinum and diamonds; Cathy's new Stained Glass Arabesque Pendant; the Green Tourmaline Ribbon Flower Ring; and lastly (not shown in the picture), the Large Leaf Earrings with Dewdrops. All quite amazing!

Eddie considers his options as we all woke up to snow! Lucky for him, the drizzle washed it away, and he was able to find his favorite spots in the grass.
