More Through the Camera Lens.

Hello and good evening. I hope all our readers had a very lovely Thanksgiving with plenty of food, friends, and family!

This is sort of a mini-post with few words, but plenty of pictures. I recently brought my clanky old film camera back into Flutter and clicked away. Here are fifteen of my favorites because I think they show all the beautiful colors inside the shop...

Here's to a fantastic and glorious week- see you in a few days!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

...at Flutter! When I walked into work on Sunday morning, I was truly astounded by just how great the store looked all ready for the holidays. Everything is all sparkly, with bowls of ornaments, mossy coverings, shimmery garlands, and sweet smells all around. I must say, it put me in an instant good mood. I wanted to pour a cup of nog and sing along to Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas'.

Of course, I snapped photos a'plenty. This weekend, I plan to bring in one of my old cameras and some black & white film and go picture crazy. But for now, some phone photographs of tree trimmings and ornaments in the shop that make my heart melt and holiday spirit rise...

Happy Holidays, darlings!

A Few Fluttery Things.

Happy Sunday! I hope you all are feeling well-rested with an extra hour of sleep thanks to Daylight Savings Time. Today I have a few things to share. First, I must mention that our sister store Eden (located in the Pearl District) now has an online shop, as well as a stunning new lookbook! The photographs, by Annie Montgomery, were shot in a Washington Forest and feature beautiful jewelry and vintage clothing, models, and even furniture (yes, put in the middle of the trees.) I think it all turned out so beautifully, and am quite happy Eden goods can now be purchased from all over the USA!

Second, we have some new lovely items at Flutter that I'd like to share. All can be purchased in our shop, and most online...

1. 'My Mom, Style Icon' from Chronicle Books ($18.95), 2. Rock candy! ($2), 3. Super cute animal nodders are back ($10), 4. Antiqued corkscrews in various styles ($34), 5 and 6. New scents in lovely containers from Voluspa ($26 and $20), 7. Set of six spinning wooden tops ($12.50), and 8. 'Instrument,' also from Chronicle Books ($29.95)

And lastly, just some shots from my recent workdays. Every day I'm there, I can't help snapping photographs. It's just too dang pretty inside!
