We just heard some great news from our friends at Yoga Jeans. A member of our Twangy Nation, the lovely Linda, was a winner in Yoga Jean’s recent Facebook giveaway.
Linda’s now looking more stylish and feeling more comfortable in her very own pair of yoga jeans (well it’s actually her second pair – so really she was already stylish and comfortable – but now she’s stylish and comfortable times two). Wheee!
Yay Linda, we’re so happy for you!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year this week since Salt Spring Island welcomed Twang & Pearl with open arms, aplomb and splash of merriment at our Grand Opening Soiree. Our winter 2011 purchasing trip to India, when the Twang & Pearl store was a but a gleam in our eyes, seems like yesterday, despite the fact that we’ve been back to India once since. Those were exciting and happy times, and here’s a picture of Joe and I on Valentine’s Day (after our container was packed and ready to sail home to Salt Spring), loving life in the Keralan backwaters, to prove it.
Most of the uncommonly beautiful finds from that trip and the next have made their way into the homes and hearts of our admirers, both from Salt Spring and afar. That alone is reason enough for celebration, and who better to celebrate with, than you our fans! Our Grand Opening Soiree was so much fun, we decided to host a repeat performance for our one year Anniversary, on Thursday, June 21st from 6 to 9 pm.
Auntie Pesto’s and Mistaken Identity Vineyards will be back with their tasty tidbits and lovely libations. Back too will be the discount hat for those wishing to shop. This Soiree we’re also putting on a mini fashion show to showcase some our feature fashion & accessories. Plus there will be door prizes and the REVEAL of our HOT ON HEREFORD SUMMER MAKEOVER. We styled the winner this afternoon, and we have to say we’re all pleased as punch with the results.
We’re also very excited to have partnered up with The Giving World Foundation to raise money for women & children needing a helping hand up (not hand-out) in India for this event.
Hope to see you at the purple house on Hereford Avenue to soiree with us!
As a little girl, I never did quite believe in the Easter Bunny.
The Tooth Fairy made sense somehow, especially as I was told my baby teeth would be used to build their little fairy houses (also incentive to keep my teeth clean by the by). Santa Claus also had a measure of magic realness, since folklore told me Santa Claus began as Kris Kringle distributing toys at night to children in a dark land where toys were outlawed. But a huge basket-toting bunny hopping around on two bunny feet instead of four hiding coloured eggs just didn’t seem plausible even in the realm of magic. I mean what useful or altruistic purpose could the Easter Bunny possibly serve? Not to mention, I’ve never really had any fondness for ‘pastels’.
So for me the Easter Bunny has always been more about a herald to Spring in all its bunny cuteness and daffodil glory. If you’re looking for some gift giving alternatives to chocolate for Easter, we have some irresistible bunny cuteness in store. Handmade in Thailand with love by a husband and wife team that we’ve come to genuinely like a lot over the six years we’ve been purchasing their critters, these bunnies will steal your heart.
Hop on down to Ganges town for your own dose of bunny love.
