Supply Showroom

Shop Spotlight




I always enjoy finding new shops that inspire new design ideas.



I was recently invited to a “pop-up shop” for the Austin-based Supply Showroom.


I was pleasantly surprised by their unique wallpapers and fabric designs.



Supply is located in a renovated 1930s bungalow on Lake Austin Blvd.


It was started by three former New Yorkers,  Kim West, Callie Jenschke and Kristin Gish who have a great eye for design.


Supply Showroom represents unique trade lines from around the world.



While visiting Austin, go by and see the girls.


You will be glad you did!

Me & Re Designs

I am crazy about anything monogrammed! That is probably why I love Me & Re Designs.


This Shop Spotlight is a Dallas favorite and actually not a shop at all.


Dallas based Me & Re Designs was started by two long-time friends, Jill Giddens (me) and Anne Marie Goodwin (re) in 2009.


You will love their website!  It is loaded with colorful gift ideas and beautiful products for your home.


Whether you are looking for that perfect gift for a graduate, a house warming goodie or beach towels for the pool, Go check out Me & Re Designs.

Shopping East Hamptons

Shop Spotlight


Shopping in the Hamptons is is so laid back! People are strolling the streets in flip flops and cover-ups.


Cute, small stores line the roads including: C wonder, Alice and Olivia, Scoop and Ralph Lauren.  About a mile up the road you can bike to Main Beach and enjoy a relaxing day on the white sand as the breeze continually cools you off.

Happy Labor Day!

Dode & Swan

Shop Spotlight

Dode and Swan


I have a new go-to gift shop I would like to share!


The designer is Amy Biediger and she owns the company Dode & Swan.  She specializes in all things Agate!


She has acrylic napkin rings, jewelry, lacquered boxes and acrylic boxes.


I have bought the napkin rings and the cuffs. They make great hostess gifts, wedding gifts and birthday gifts.


Everyone loves receiving them!


She has such a beautiful array of styles and colors, it is hard to choose just one!
