I love anything with the word boutique in it, whether it’s a boutique hotel or a boutique bakery or in the case of Idlewild Co., a boutique paper company, I’m on board. We were out running around last weekend over the holiday and went into a wonderful shop on Automobile Alley in Oklahoma City and that’s where I stumbled onto some gorgeous prints by Idlewild. I came home and looked them up on the world wide web and love what I’m seeing. Idlewild was founded in 2010 by artist Katie Gastley, Katie began Idlewild by exhibiting some of her paintings at a Brooklyn craft fair, people took notice, began asking her for special items and a stationery company was born. Today Katie and her cohorts operate out of Florida and their products are sold online as well in stores across the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan. We’ll definitely be paying Idlewild another visit in the near future, as for today here’s a look at some of their gorgeous products. Enjoy!!!

Where does the time go???? It’s hard to believe but it’s time to start thinking about back to school, Oklahoma City starts on Monday, August 1st. I’ll try to help you out over the next several days with a look at great looking and well-designed merchandise to help your child or teenager have a great and successful school year. We’re going to start today with a look at supplies from Poppin, a company that always has great looking merchandise in awesome colors and designs. Here’s to the last days of summer and an awesome school year for you and your child, Enjoy!!!

It’s time to start thinking about Sunday, June 19th which is Father’s Day, so I’m going to share some great things I’ve found that’ll make your Dad’s day extra special. Rawlings, of course, is an American based sports equipment company and has been around since 1887 specializing in baseball equipment and if your dad is into baseball or just enjoys anything well made from fine leathers than you need to check out the Rawlings Specialty Leather department on their website. In addition to baseballs and gloves, Rawlings is now producing beautiful leather accessories for men and women, but for the upcoming Father’s Day, we are going to focus on items for Dad. You can pick up most anything for Dad, from a leather chair to iPad covers, wallets of all sizes, organizers and money clips. I love that the items are made from the same leathers as their other products and many of them have great red baseball stitching as an accent, I enjoyed playing little league and high school baseball but maybe not as much as I’m enjoying these pieces, check ’em out for Dad and Enjoy!!!
