I really do!
It's about new beginnings —and growing. And discovery — always about discovery!
And that's what we are doing at Pretty Things & Cool Stuff!
We're taking the great input and feedback from you and using it to help guide us as we discover new goodies. We also will be listening to you as we work to craft a new service that we hope will bring delight!
If you haven't signed up for our emails yet, why don't you take just a minute to do so now while you're visiting the shop. Also, we could love to have you as part of our growing community on facebook, Pinterest, twitter and Instagram. Just scroll down to the bottom of the home page, and you will find the sign-up box for email, as well as links to all things social.
Sybil and I also want to thank all of our customers again, and we also want to express our deep gratitude for the wonderful reviews. You can check out some of them by looking for the blue "REVIEWS" tab on the right-hand side of the shop pages.
We also are getting some very nice kudos coming in via email that really warm our hearts:
I wish you the best in this exciting new endeavor too! Great items, a great site, plus great customer service and an all around really GREAT IDEA!!! I am sure it will be a success too - I can tell you are very passionate about it all too - and that's what it takes to make a dream come true!! — Vicki W.
I love the jewelry. Mom is very happy with the rose necklace. And I love the one I got, too. They came in perfect condition. :-) — Pam T.
AND, we are so excited about the great media coverage we have gotten!
We are especially delighted that it came from Green Source DFW because sustainability and caring for our planet and all of the life on it is very near and dear to us. And, we also are very proud that the Lakewood / East Dallas ADVOCATE discovered us because they also are all about something that is very important to us — community!
"I can tell you are very passionate about it all too - and that's what it takes to make a dream come true!!" I started crying when I read that.
Yep. I am very passionate about Pretty Things & Cool Stuff, what it's about, what I envision about its possibilities and what it can evolve to be — with you coming along every step of the way!
So, here's to Spring — I hope you will take the time to watch and enjoy its unfolding beauty...simply stunning and truly awe-inspiring. That's why we chose the selections in our Flowers, Plants & Gardening Collection (and more are on their way!).
And here's to new beginnings and ongoing discovery. We hope you will find something inspiring in our Do Something Meaningful! Learn Something New! Collection (more to come, too!)
I think it's time to cue up a little Blossom Dearie and "They Say It's Spring".
If you Instagram, follow us from your phone app and share how Spring is unfolding in your world. Be sure to add this tag: #theysayitsspring.
Don't you just love Spring!
