 Hi There,

Spring is here!

Hard to believe, but where we are it is warm enough to be outside with just a light sweater or jacket. We're taking our first bicycle spin of the season this afternoon.

While tuning up our bikes, I thought about how spring is the time for renewal, refreshing - fixing things up after the wear of winter weather. Have a look through our website for all sorts of pick-me-ups - fashion, jewelry and home décor.


 We knew it was Spring when the Red, Red, Robin came Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along!

We weren't quick enough to get a picture of the robin that appeared in our back yard but this one gives you the general idea.  Got to learn to keep the camera handy!


We launched this special on our Kikoy Kiondo Handbags last month.  We had no idea how much you'd like them.  They've been flying out the door ever since.  So, we're extending the discount until the end of April.  

Get yours soon as we're running low on stock.  More are coming in but won't be 15% off after April 30th.  They are the perfect Spring wardobe booster and a great gift for any young (or young at heart) lady.



Well, Diamonds aren't our best friends, but we sure do like them!


And at 15% off, you can get friendly with one of our lovely diamond gemstones!  

Diamonds have a long history as beautiful objects of desire.

The world’s love of diamonds had its start in India, where diamonds were gathered from the country’s rivers and streams.  You don’t have to go that far!  We have gorgeous genuine diamond gemstones at marvelous prices.  Starting at a mere $149.00, our diamonds are very affordable additions to your gemstone collection.

Register for our updates to get your 15% Off Diamond discount.

Earth Day is Wednesday, April 22nd.  We couldn't think of a better way of celebrating and encouraging respect for the environment than by introducing you to our Art On Banana Fiber Paper.


Celebrate Earth Day with beautiful artwork on eco-friendly banana fiber paper. 
Once bananas are harvested, the tree stems are usually discarded.  Instead, eco-friendly banana fiber paper can be produced.  The fibers in the paper produce a beautiful texture for these unique pieces.
