Her Bling Has Wings

Miss Holly of The Pink Garage came to the Urban Barn last night and sprinkled her jewels everywhere for the lucky ladies that came. Holly is a bundle of fun and energy and you can't help but feel good when she is around. Her laugh is infectious! Holly and Linda put together some beautiful displays and the jewelry was flying out the door!! I swear it had wings!!
We had a great turnout of shoppers and jewelry lovers.
Holly's friend Tessa brought this amazing Cupcake tree to display the cupcakes they brought. I was blown away by the imagination of this. They make them for weddings and parties. You can contact Holly through her blog for info. It is a stunning piece!
Holly doing what she does-creating happiness and laughter with her gorgeous jewels!
We have more events and lots of plans for the Fall, keep watching!!
Thank you for coming and giving Holly's jewels wings!

Necklaces, bracelets, belts awaiting to be draped on your skinny girl body with dazzling rhinestones, skeleton be-jeweled purses waiting to come out and haunt this fall season.

Our own, Holly Lauren will be clearing house of her Summer 2010 collection.

Don't wrinkle that frow... (we won't have botox)

Which Witch????

Miss Tricia is flying into the "Urban Barn" on her broom that leaves a glittery trail swirling through glowing Escondido....
Let's make sure there are no striped legs with sparkly red shoes under our garage door Friday morning...and no Tricia.

These wonderful witch hats make lovely mother-in-law gifts, mean math teacher hats or that all season long witch..
I need to make quite a few this Friday and Saturday...I have been quite naughty.
I like it.

....We Love L.A., Especially The Giannettis'

Our Road Trip to Los Angeles was filled with visiting our dear friends and scouring downtown L.A. to scoop up creative ideas to make your dreams come true here at "Urban Barn".

A must stop is "Giannetti Home" to take in all the visual treasures that only Miss Brooke and Steve can gather.
We are so lucky to call The Giannetti's our wonderful friends...
So talented and gifted but mostly full of love, compassion.
Blessed to have this family in our lives.
Look for some projects we will be working on together.

Take a look at one of Brooke's biggest talents...Landscaping and gardening.
Brooke's garden and house is simply breathtaking...
Much like her soul and smile.

Thank you to Steve, Brooke and those beautiful children.
