It's easy being green.

This week I went on a scavenger hunt around the shoppe in search of some of my very favorite green goodies. 

There's a saying and I know you'll recognize it, "It's not easy being green." But who's to say it isn't easy to decorate with? Did you know that the color green is a neutral? 


Several colors work well and thrive from it. Which makes it especially easy when you want to add a splash here and there around your home, bedroom, or porch.

From light to dark, cool to warm. Green is known for being refreshing, rejuvenating, energetic and peaceful. 



Remember, green doesn't necessarily have to be limited to just home decorating. It's well know in the fashion world too. Pantone.com named emerald green as 2013 color of the year. 


I hope my green favorites become some of yours. Don't forget to visit LaurieAnnas.com and check out our "What's New" Category. We've been busy adding to it.


Decorative peacock inspired throw pillow. Great addition to any room.
Snowball flower arrangement looks great by its self or under a cloche. 
Potted herb plant place card holders fit for a garden party.
Don't flutter away! Check these out... decorative butterfly and dragonfly trays
Spruce up any table by adding fresh sprigs of flowers to this metal bottle holder
Serve up your next meal on these luscious 14" jade colored plates.


 Looking forward to creating another color challenge post for you.  I wonder what color I should choose next?

Till next time...

It's all about friends, family and being happy...

I'm so thankful for our service men and women and very grateful to have celebrated the 4th in honor and memory of them all.  I'm also so grateful for our past show.  


From cold wet noses to tiny feet, and everything in between, we had visits from them all during our July show. Gotta love that! :-)

Sisters, Reagan and Skylar Silvia, along with friend Lily Pieper, shared their favorite quotes as they read out loud to each other.
This is true inspiration! Thank you young ladies for visiting the shoppe.

While browsing with her mom, Olivia thought this metal crown napkin ring would be the perfect fit for her. Now that's cute! 

Kamdyn Leigh (3) and Allie Mae (4) quickly held up their jewelry buckets and smiled BIG when I told them I wanted to take their picture. Both traveled from Haltom City, TX with their family.
Summer is flying by very quickly and I have less than 3 weeks to prep the shoppe again. Where has this year gone?
Happiness is like a butterfly. The more you chase it, the more it will elude you. But if you turn your attention to other things it will come and sit quietly on your shoulder. ~Thoreau


Thank you again for all the happiness and for another amazing show. Till next time...

The Shoppe is ready for its guests.


I'm geared up and ready for our next show. The shoppe prepping time this month seemed to be a bit longer. Giving me more time to fluff and add lots of new goodies throughout.

We have some really great sales this month. Our clothing room will be the place to go with up to 75% off selected garments.  A great opportunity to expand your summer wardrobe.

Also, several of ours rooms will have discounted goodies, so make sure to keep an eye out. I don't want you to miss them. 


A new item to look for is this vintage inspired photo frame.  It is so bright and cheerful. It definitely brought an instant smile to my face when it arrived.


Don't forget to look for our handmade botanicals and burlap pillows. They are both a one of a kind find and would make a special gift.


I could go on all day about all of our new goodies, but I want you to be surprised.  Once again, I can't wait until the doors open and share everything with you.  See you soon.


Till next time!

The Fallen Sky Gemstone

Our jewelry room has turned in a turquoise haven. I'm excited about this, because it is by far my favorite gemstone of all. I have an abundant collection. I just can't get enough of it. 

To me, turquoise has a radiant effect to it. It ranges in color from a greenish-blue to the reflection of a pale blue sky. Some compare variations to a robins-egg blue. It has been valued by many cultures for its beauty. 

Here are a few examples of the illuminating colors.

Turquoise has been prized as a gem and ornamental stone. Known to cure with it's many healing powers. To Native Americans, turquoise is life. In fact, medicine men keep this gemstone with them because they say it possesses powers of healing. It is known for its positive energy, and as a protector.  

Loving those positive vibes!

Turquoise may come and go in fashion and has many times, but you can always find ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe. From earrings and bracelets, to necklaces, brooches and rings. How do you choose?


One bold dramatic piece can really make a statement. Large necklace pendants, drop earrings and large chunky rings are wonderful options and can be worn casually or dressy.


You can find an abundant selection at the Shoppe, be sure to check it out at the upcoming show.  It takes place July 3rd - 6th.

Burlap, the multifunctional textile.


Burlap.
What a fascinating and multifunctional textile.

First, a quick history lesson.

Burlap is a material made out of the fibers of the jute plant.  Also called Hessian cloth.  It is also known as the "breathable" fabric making it resistant to condensation.  

Did you know the burlap bag was designed to protect shipped goods such as coffee and beans. Burlap locks out the moisture and prevents the goods from spoiling. It can be dried over and over again with out harming it's fibers.

Burlap is a multi-functional, comes in a variety of colors and textures, is inexpensive, organic, and easy to work with. It can be treated, sprayed and manipulated in many ways. 
 
It's entertaining to think that a textile designed for shipping goods, has become such a popular decorating trend over the past years.

Our shoppe is lined with burlap items. Ranging from simple decorative touches to handmade products. Here are just a few examples.

Sew pieces of burlap together to make decorative pillows.

Make your floral arrangement blossom by adding a few burlap flowers and butterflies.
 
Spruce up your dinner table with these flower inspired burlap napkin rings.  Aren't they fun?!

You'd be surprised by how many ways you can incorporate burlap into your everyday decor. 

Don't forget, our next show is coming up.
July 3rd - July 6th. See you here!

How far would you travel to shop?...

Our past show sure did go by fast, but as always, it was great fun. The shoppe was filled with energy, laughter and lots of happy people.
I love to use fresh flowers in the Shoppe displays, so this time of year is always a favorite because we can find wildflowers growing all alongside the Texas highways and country roads.  I love being a Texas gal.


We had some new arrivals of furniture this month such as this beautiful cabinet....it just happened to be perfect for linens.


Getting to see the familiar faces of our customers that have become friends are among my favorite things.  It's touching each month to meet new customers and to hear them tell us how far they have traveled just to visit our shoppe.  A perfect example are these two lovely ladies....
Liz Cirasola from Oceanside, New York and
Robin Arnoff from Clermont, Florida.

Liz fand Robin have been friends for 42 years.  The distance doesn't keep then apart. Liz flew to Florida to meet Robin and then they drove together to Canton. They shared that they had visited shopping venues all across the country, but LaurieAnna's was the best shoppe they'd ever visited.  Wow, what a compliment!

It was a pleasure to meet you both and we look forward to seeing you on the next shopping trip.


A few other favorite show moments....this father/daughter moment was to precious not to capture. This cutie was absolutely fascinated by the crystals hanging from the garden arbor.

Double the fun! 
Friend Laura helps out mom Melissa with her 8 week old twin babies. I spotted many of you helping too. :-)


Thank you to my sweet LA Crew, new and old customers, friends and family for another successful show. I couldn't do it with out you.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. We have so many photos to share and don't want you to miss them.

See you at our next show!
