BURLAP & Biscuits … COMING SOON to Central Texas!!


Just wanted to give a quick update on the store! I started the online store www.burlapandbiscuits.com to start showcasing & selling online to friends and fans – but I could see right away that having a fully stocked (and restocked) online store is going to be more than a full-time job! The photographs, write-ups, staging, packing, shipping, etc, etc… are all way more than one person can handle! Not to mention having time to get out and shop for new & vintage items – plus scour the internet for great treasures too.

Oh my goodness!! So, the plan to open an actual store front (which was always in the works) got pushed to the top of the priority list -and all I’ve been doing for the past 2+ weeks is gathering amazing inventory!! Folks, let me tell you… you are going to LOVE this stuff!! Some old, some new, some hand-crafted, some weird, some pretty, some classic…I could go on and on. We will even have some goodies like cupcakes, cookies & fudge!  You will no longer need to travel out-of-town to find fabulous and unique items -as soon as we can get this store opened!!

Heres the scoop…We are negotiating for a location in Harker Heights – but if all else fails… I will open this shop in our leased space on Elms Road. The hope is that we can get a deal worked out on the Harker Heights space – which means an opening date of “around” July 1st, 2011. However, if it turns out that we aren’t able to get that location – we have already made plans to open in Killeen ASAP – likely around the end of April. AS SOON AS I know when & where – I will post an update and let everyone know!!

In the meantime, if you see anything you like in our online store  www.burlapandbiscuits.com -just let me know!!

Oooohhh So Cute for KIDS! Naartjie Kids Clothing Stores!


Along my shopping trip out-of-town this weekend…I happened across a wonderful kids’ clothing store at the outlet mall in San Marcos! Naartjie – I had never heard if it before and still don’t know how to pronounce it – but I can tell you IT IS FABULOUS! Surely refreshing- positively adorable – and surprisingly affordable! Not to mention – you will be able to dress your little one like a KID and still keep them fashionable! There’s nothing that peeves me more than a tot dressed like they should be going to the club… but I understand that there’s not a lot of options in most towns.

I am always on the look-out for “something different” to dress my little Sadie Alice in… and this may be it! The sale was incredible and even the everyday prices weren’t too bad. There are stores sprinkled around the US – you can check for a store near you here. STORE LOCATIONS

They sell online too -for those of us who like to shop that way! NAARTJIE ONLINE

Its a little “hippie” and a little “funky” and A LOT original. I found the most adorable jacket and outfit for Sadie – I can’t wait to dress her in it! Mom, check out this store – I promise you will LOVE it! (Oh! And the boys clothes are just as cute as the girls clothes!!)

Check out a few of their pieces here – and see even more on their website!
