It's finally looking like Fall in LA with lots of rain, and leaves everywhere. Perfect weather for curling up with a good book in front of a fire. I am currently loving a book we have in the store about the work and life of Saint Exupery, the man behind The Little Prince. The book is full of his adventures, his friendships, his creativity with words, and his wonderful, whimsical illustrations.

We've changed things up in the store to make room for lots of holiday goodies and just because change is good. Thrilled with the 'renovation' and upholstery job on the old sofa I found at a market as well as the great wool pillows we've added to warm things up. And yes, I've always loved the Union Jack.
