arrows and flowers: a shop preview

I hate to keep talking about the weather, but dang, August has just been so wonderful compared the rest of the summer!  I love the light this time of year, and you can really feel autumn in the air.  Which makes it so much easier to start putting cozier items in the shop.  You'll find some cozy things here, plus some great prints.  For example:  a moire (or "watered silk"--but in cotton) raincoat, two arrow prints, a wild Peter Max-ish print, and watercolor Impressionist flowers.  Take a look at what will be appearing in the shop over the next week.

  1. The transition months are the best, aren't they!
    I've been noticing the sun shining for a little longer each day here, and I know spring is just around the corner. I am however, looking forward to experiencing a little bit of Autumn when I visit in October.

    I love the last skirt too.
