It’s Friday, the end of a fabulous week and beginning of a wonderful Mother’s Day for all of you! My favorite thing is to spend time with my daughter, and my second favorite thing is my hubbie’s chocolate chip pancakes on Sunday mornings…so that’s what I look forward to. What ritual do you look forward to on Mother’s Day?
I also love to shop! And the opening of this adorable new shop in Austin, The Embellished Cottage, reminds me of all the beautiful things my mother loved. She and I always loved finding cozy little shops in small towns filled with an assortment of eclectic goodies from little note pads to antiques to pillows, of course. So in honor of my mother, who is still with me no matter how many years it’s been since she passed away, I bring to you our favorite new Austin shop that carries our one-of-a-kind pillows.
Owners Charlene & Wayne Hardy have done a fabulous job “embellishing” (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun!) this adorable cottage into the quaintest and finest gift boutique. They just opened in time for a little shopping with Mom. You can grace your home with antique silver, pop art, pillows, globes, books, candelabras and more.
The shop even carries jewelry by local Austin designer Cynthia Bloom, who handcrafts gorgeous necklaces out of antique Czech beads into contemporary and stylish fashion. Perfect gifts for Mom and even you!
One thing I love about the shop is how the owners mix everything all up, because we love to do that with our pillows. So the shop really speaks to us and we’re so excited that Charlene selected our pillow line, Deborah Main Designs, along with many other beautiful lines to carry in her store.
Above is one our newest collections, the fun and flirty UnZipped pillows. Just being in The Embellished Cottage, with its wide array of hand-selected objects, inspires one to slip a little love note into the zipper of the pillow.
The Embellished Cottage is the new kid on the block of Kerbey Lane, but won’t be for long! This little cozy shop with tons of collectible and fun objects will inspire you for years to come! Stop by this weekend on Saturday with your Mom and friends, 10- 6 p.m. And watch here for details of their GRAND OPENING on June 6th.
Please take a quick peak at one of the other new gorgeous stores we’ll be blogging about in the future. And have a fantastic Mother’s Day!!! XO PG
