HAPPY 2012! It's going to be another great year at Mothers and Daughters.

Janauary has certainly been a crazy, busy month for us!  After Christmas, we changed the store around, opened it up, cleared it out and got it ready for another wonderful year.  Janet and I went to the Atlanta Market for 5 days then headed for the Dallas market with Mom for 4 more days.  We have just simply, wonderful things coming in! 

Our purse and jewelry department is loaded with brand new purses, jewelry sets, bracelets, scarves, rings, oh, I could just go on and on.  But you get the point.  You just have to come see the new jewelry - just darling!  (And did we mention - terrific prices!)

Also, just in is our new spring and summer tabletop collections.  Quilts for your table, placemats, napkins and lots of napkin rings!  We have 6 new patterns for you to choose from.  Just so warm and homey - oh I just love them!

We get to meet so many wonderful people when we go to market.  Often the designers of the lines are there, artists are in their showrooms and great people like Amy Sebeck pictured here, helped us with a Suzy Toronto order.  We all have one thing in mind.  To bring our customers the very best that the market has to offer. 
We love the garden look and there will be so many new spring and summer wreaths, garlands, nests, bunnies and birds.  Oh my.  Loovvveeee!!!
These are really gonna be great!  The most adorable beach bags in lucious summer prints and matching straw hats!  Can't you just imagine yourself on the beach right now?  First stop - Mothers and Daughters - bag, tote, hat, sunglasses, coverup, cooler and on and on and on.  We have it!
The cutest totes you have ever seen!  Lots coming in!  These will all include a vinyl monogram of your choice.  If you can make a decision that is.
These necklaces were a hit last year and they have added to their line.  Wonderful sayings, makes a great gift and they are so reasonably priced!  Wait till you see all the new ones!
Lots of new totes, lunch bags and duffels in fun, summer colors!
We couldn't go to market without stopping by to see Suzy Toronto!  We love her line and have added much more this time.  A whole new section of greeting cards.  You will find the perfect one for every occassion.   She is always a doll.
New terry towel wraps coming in the sofest fabric ever!  These will make darling graduation gifts.  Monogrammed of course!
For 17 years we have sold "Bearington" baby items.  They continue to be one of our customer favorites.  New designs coming - and they are adorable!
New aprons coming from Peking Designs.  This is Kate Spain, one of the designers of their new lines!  She was so sweet.  We were ooing and aaahhing over her new designs and she was watching us over in the corner.  We didn't know who she was and wondered why she was smiling at us.  Heck, I would too, if people were liking my stuff!  Can't wait till they come in.
"The Gathering of Friends"  cookbook series has just added number four!  They are all in the store and make wonderful gifts for newlyweds or anyone who wants to learn new, easy and delicious recipes.  These books have always been a customer favorite!
This is Kelly Rae Roberts.  We have carried her prints, journals and accessories for three years now.  She has so many darling new things coming out.
After 5 days, 11 hours a day, walking and on your feet constantly, this is what we feel like.  Yay!  We are through!  Oh, wait, next week we go to Dallas. 

Well, that was market.  For the next 4 weeks all this stuff will be coming in to the store and we will be unpacking and getting it ready for you.  Thank you for supporting our shoppe this past year.  We have the most wonderful customers in the world.
Now.  GO SHOPPING.  Get Happy!

Dallas Market With Mom and My Girls

Always a great time with Mom and my girls Summer and Kristy
at the Dallas Market. That's Summer with Mom taking a break.
We walk an awful lot!

My friend Ann from Apple Annie's in Brandon, MS broke her foot at market in

Atlanta last January. She has been in a cast ever since.

I "borrowed" her scooter to cruise around a little.

Now that's the way to do market!

Our husbands think it's all work and no play at market!

We sure do have them fooled.

Don't worry girls, we didn't order the men's underwear!

We all smile for ice-cream!

That's Kristy and Summer taking a break!

We really do work hard. Really.

The four of us in front of one of the showrooms. Chillin' in the hotel room. Kristy and I were on our cell-phones

and Mom and Summer

were playing on the I-Pads. What did we do before electronics?

Did we really talk to each other?

Papacita's mexican restaurant. Our favorite.

Love being with my girls. They are my greatest blessing.
