Miss G is so pleased! After many requests for a mirror in her room we have found the perfect solution, "a beauty station". Now I do not think an 8 year old needs a "beauty station", GLTC where I bought the ideal mirror has named it that but it is just perfect! A slim two door cupboard attaches to the wall and opens to reveal a mirror plus lots of storage. It is the storage bit that we are loving. Teamed with a Miss Gracie hair clip holder, it is hair bobble & bow nirvana! No more bows left on the side of the bath. Why leave them lying about when Miss G can organise them in her "beauty station". So far she has spent more time organising the bits and bobs than she has looking in the mirror. Long may it last.

"Coming soon", a phrase that I am using too much lately but with postal delays due to weather, a photographer who actually has a "day job" to see to and the talented creators who are tying bows as quick as they can; new bows are "coming soon". In the meantime I have decide to create the unthinkable - a coming soon image. UGH! I find it so frustrating to be shopping online and not be able to see what it is I am so keenly seeking. Needs must so I am popping in the image on bow styles that are already offered, it is just the colour that is new. The image will not be there for long - the bows will be finished, the postman will deliver and the photographer will have a free Saturday afternoon - "soon".

Sorry girls, no school today. I guess you'll have to spend another day in the snow.

2010! While readying myself for this brand new year I came upon this old photo of the first retail days of Miss Gracie. I laughed at the products on offer (some items were just terrible!) and how small a part the hair bows played. Now it is all about the hair bow and never could I have imagined having a business dedicated completely to hair bows or that I would sell them to customers worldwide. The sticky dots on our world map tell the story. Spain, Italy, Switzerland, France, the USA, Singapore, Belgium, Hong Kong, Australia... Thank you to all Miss Gracie customers, family and friends worldwide. We wish you a very Happy New Year!
