Hi everyone,

Happy "almost" winter. The weather in Texas has been so amazing that it's hard to imagine that Christmas is in a few short weeks. We have been listening to Christmas carols with all the doors and windows open while the birds sing along. In fact, we are making light weight clothing to layer for our winter collection. When it finally does get cold here, we'll just put on more and more beautiful layers! Here's our newest "Beautiful Wear" video (click on image to view).

I just love this season - the smell of cinnamon dust, peppermint sticks, pine cones, and cranberries simmering on the stovetop, sweetened with pomegranate juice. I might even put Christmas lights up this year. For those of you who don't know me very well, I don't really decorate too much for Christmas ( childhood issues). John and I are going to decorate one of the cedar trees in our yard for all the sweet animals -- it already looks like a manger!

Love to all of you,


"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."

-Agnes M. Pahro

Oh, I wore my Pearl to a Christmas open house on Saturday, had some woman say why are you dressed like that!! lol! I just smiled and said because it makes me feel good!

Funny how we continue to evolve and recreate ourselves. This was the season I put no ornaments on the tree, rather admired it for its purity and simplicity, as it reflects my own drawing nearer to a much less complicated, more appreciative life. Merry Christmas ~ Alexandra
