Have you noticed that the big necklace, aka bubble necklace, is all the rage? And let's face it, it's likely a fun but fleeting trend. That is precisely why picking one up at The French Hen for under $30 is brilliant.  Just in from NYC we have a great selection. Pop in for a pop of color.

I have a lovely and brandy-new greeting card line at the shop...sacredbee. They are by Pamela Zagarenski. The cards, like Pamela's art are absolutely charming. Pamela's people and creatures appeal to anyone with an ounce of soul, young or old. She has illustrated more than 25 books for children and has her own new book coming out soon called "Sleep Like a Tiger". Back to my same old wonderful to get a piece of mail, to be thought of. Sacredbee is my new favorite way to let someone dear know that they are on my mind.
Here is more of her beautiful
