Accessories: Deux Lux

Attention all Holiday Party-Goers!

This season's must-have accessory is a Deux Lux sparkle wallet. Who wouldn't want to get noticed pulling one of these flashy pouches out of her purse? I like the half moon flower purse as a clutch all by itself and the handy-dandy wristlet keeps it close for a night of dancing.

This zippered checkbook sized wallet makes a perfect clutch.

These zippered coin and card cases nestle sleekly inside your purse.

Feel like a princess when you pull out a mini mirror with the cutest flower poof on top.

Found On Etsy: Peacocks!

Our feathered friends have been everywhere this Fall, and we just adore these beautiful birds. From jewelry to linens and everything in between, the gorgeous plumes of the peacock have taken over Etsy so we set off to find some of our favorites.

This peacock filigree locket is sterling silver plated and only $24.00! For a night out on the town, we love this jewel toned clutch with iridescent silk lining. These darling little clips are only $8.00 and add a wee bit of elegance to every hairdo. Feathered earrings have been hip for awhile now and for only $4.00 we're not quite ready to let go of them. This hand silkcreened pillow like this, fits right in with all our jonathan adler curiosities and to wrap it all up, we'd send miniature thank you's on some sexy little stationery like this.

One of the Dreamy-est times of year is the Fall and Winter season, and this year we are SO excited to be surrounded with these gorgeous, whimsical, and absolutely Dreamy Roost Feather Globe Ornaments. I would love to have a delicate grouping of them dangling over a clawfooted bathtub, floating above like big feather filled bubbles.

Press Alert!

Dreamy certainly isn't camera shy these days! We have been overjoyed at the amount of press we've been receiving this summer and fall. First we got news of a Star magazine's Summer Flames article back in July and then there was the REA award in Gift & Decorative Accessories and now InStyle magazine! To top it all off, last night we enjoyed an evening of cupcakes and cocktails for a little jewelry and denim party with our favorite pals down at Mog & Rue, and who showed up? The very darling Tracy from San Diego's Fashion Calendar to do this little piece on us. WHEW! It has been a busy summer and we are so grateful for all this abundant support.

Dreamy Reads: Pecoff Books

There have been babies, babies everywhere this year at Dreamy and we love giving books as baby shower gifts. We especially love the Pecoff Books, "Open Your Heart" and "Live Your Dream" created by locals Layne A.L. Pecoff and Grant Pecoff. These children's books are equally delightful to adults and little ones everywhere and we find the illustrations and accompanying stories absolutely inspiring. You can find both available online at shopdreamy. From all of us here at Dreamy, we wish you a day filled with inspiration and adventure!

Candle: Linnea's Lights

New favorite for all of us here at Dreamy is candle company Linnea's Lights. Super juicy scents like Yuzu and Agave light up any room and for something a little more sultry we recommend the amber. An all day every day scent favorite is the Bamboo.

Stationery: Delphine

Today we are spotlighting one of our most favorite stationers in the whole wide world! We just ADORE the fantastic Erika Firm of Delphine and all her darling stationery creations. And boy has she been busy lately! We're talking oodles and oodles of new designs and colors that tickle our fancy on a daily basis. We're sending "thank you's" and "just because notes" like it's going out of style! Our dear Erika is based out of our own backyard, Rancho Santa Fe, California and makes letterpressed stationery from soy inks printed on recycled papers. Sending a delightful note and saving the earth? Oh So Dreamy!

Housewares: Jonathan Adler

We have been Jonathan Adler fans for quite some time, but we are especially enamored with the newest little Dreamy arrivals...his sweet little salt & pepper shakers. We have his wee little whales and fun little fishies on the shelves right now! Not to mention a collection of vases, sculptures and other kitsch available online. We think you'll agree that Mr. Adler is the cat's meow!

Jewelry: Nashelle

Dreamy has been wild for Oregon based Nashelle Jewlery for quite some time. They create gorgeous pieces in the U.S. from recycled precious metals and semi-precious stones. We all can agree that few things get a girls heart rate going quite like a piece of unique sparkling jewlery, and Nashelle Jewelry is no exception. A personal favorite piece is the deliciously chunky Raw crystal, aquamarine and gold necklace pictured below. For everyday earrings, we all love the oh-so-simple and yet oh-so-elegant stick earrings. Whichever piece you choose, we know it will delight the inner indulgent in you for years to come!

New In Store: Alice Supply Co.

We are so excited here at Dreamy to add a Dreamy new product line to our storefront! Alice Supply Co. offers the 'hippest' housewares around.

And for only $4.00 for a 3 pack of the cutest sponges you've ever seen, we think we'll go clean something right now!

Found On Etsy: Mushrooms!

Mushrooms seem to be everywhere these days and they've come a long way from the days of The Grateful Dead, hemp necklaces and psychedelic decor. We scoured Etsy for some of the cutest little mushrooms out there, and we found all these little gems just waiting to be adopted.
Here's how to find them:

Top Three: We absolutely love these gorgeous Mushroom Prints found here. They are a set of four signed 5 by 7 prints by artist Jessica Doyle. We would love to gift this Mushroom Charm Necklace found here to a little niece or daughter and the Wooly Mushroom Critters found here would look charming nestled in a wooden bowl on our coffee table.

Middle Three: This Mushroom Print Tote, found here is perfect for a sunny summer day and it looks like it will fit everything we can possibly cram into our purse. Our little ones will look adorable in the Kids Mushroom Tee found here. And we wouldn't mind a little whimsy added from the Tiny Mushroom Earrings found here.

Bottom Three: The Mushroom "Be Nice To Yourself Print" can be found here. We adore the 8 by 10 print by Laura George and the affirmation would make us smile every morning. Check out the cute little Mushroom Stamp found here. Not sure exactly what we need to stamp but we're sure something will come up. And our fridge is begging us to decorate it with the Mushroom Magnets found here.

These little matchboxes from
Driscoll Designs are just darling and we like to keep a box of the mushroom print on hand in every room. They are available in the Dreamy storefront. Here's wishing you all a week filled with FUNgus!

Color: Cactus

Our color inspiration today is taken from a beautiful cactus garden we visited in Northern California. These muted greens, washed out browns and warm earthy reds remind us of a hot sunny summer day in the desert. Wouldn't these colors look so peaceful and soothing in a bedroom filled with crisp white fabrics, rustic wood furniture and cool concrete flooring? We would add the soothing scent of Burn Voyage's Silver Springs candle by lighting a couple on the bedside tables.

A Dreamy Holiday: Happy 4th!

From all of us here at the Dreamy headquarters... we wish you a very happy Independence Day! We hope this Saturday is filled with family, friends, fun and food for you all. Here in Encinitas we are celebrating by watching the Neptune Neighborhood parade and sipping on some sweet spiked lemonade. Delicious bar-b-que, potato salad and some cherry pie for dessert. Mmmm!

Found On Etsy: Poppies!

Dreamy is in love with our California poppies that have been blooming, er, popping up, all over the place this summer. Our delightful state flower has inspired us to search the always exciting "Etsy" high and low for all varieties of items detailed with this darling little bloom.

Top Row:
Oh so sweet! We LOVE this adorable little poppy print with a little birdie and our favorite Dreamy blue background color. Check it out here.We at Dreamy are always suckers for unique and colorful jewelry and we couldn't resist this beautiful necklace in blue and poppy red. Liven up your kitchen with these darling dishtowels adorned with a row of red poppies.

Middle Row: We do adore a spontaneously sent note card and this simple but sweet greeting is no exception. And how about this oh-so-practical and oh-so-delightful tote? We'll take 3 for all our shopping needs!

Bottom Row: Oh my goodness! This clutch is a must-have accessory to liven up any outfit, and we would love to use this wine set for a warm summer night's gathering of wine and cheese. And last, but certainly not least, we absolutely adore this lovely signed & numbered (run of 300) limited edition letterpress print by Delphine.

Dreamy Evolution

Looking around the store today, I started thinking about the evolution of Dreamy and thought it might be fun to show you how this turquoise loveliness came to be. Here's a photo of the canvas of Dreamy:Not a drop of gorgeous turquoise to be found!
Did you notice the need for a serious restructuring of the ceiling:And so, a lovely new ceiling in place with a drastic change of the color scape:

Progress! The feel of Dreamy starts with the color of the walls. Don't you just feel happy and peaceful looking at this? More to come, I think that might be enough construction shots for now.

Congratulations Are in Order!

Congratulations to Stephanie N., our Dreamy May Give Away winner. We hope you find many occasions to enjoy your new Orla Kiely clutch!
