Cheers to Mom!

  1. Serve Mom up a taste of Wine Country with a polished wood tray or board. We love ours and use them for everything from cheese to cocktails. Our favorite place to buy one: Vintage Home Napa Valley in St. Helena. 
  2. We can’t keep Mom from getting lost, but we can make her keys look beautiful when she drives away with our Barrel Keychains
  3. Our Cheers necklaces are the perfect gift for Mom. A sweet card and a necklace that she won't take off, all in one. 
  4. The only thing better than a delicious bottle of Rosé is a big bottle of Rosé. Stoller offers its Willamette Valley cuvée in magnums and double magnums—a rare find! 
  5. Sometimes the best present is the gift of time. Carve out a few hours for just you and your mom or your favorite mom-friend to do something—it can be as simple as a walk in a park, watching a movie or chatting on the porch. One of our favorite places to spend time with our moms is Yountville, where art lines the main street, making a walk feel like a gallery visit. 
Spring 2017

Spring 2017

Forget spring cleaning and think spring preening. Add some style to your celebration table, living room or front porch with our favorite April finds.

  1. Wouldn’t it be fun to add a pink chair to your living room or bedroom this spring! This one by Jonathan Adler caught our eye for its luscious, yet modern design. 
  2. We are shamelessly in love with Lorenza Rosé. It’s easy to drink and pretty to look at, making it that just-right wine for all spring celebrations. 
  3. We can’t help but call our new lineup of Tassel Keychains the girls. All together, they resemble a line of ladies in fancy dresses. Each is an equally beautiful—and practical—way to store your keys. 
  4. Model Bakery in Napa and St. Helena bakes hot cross buns once a year for Easter. Like its famous English muffins, MB’s buns sell out quickly. If you aren’t lucky enough to snag a few, here’s a recipe to bake your own from the Pioneer Woman.
  5. IF you’re like us, you’re thinking about sprucing up the porch or the deck. Bamboo is the hot trend for this season and we especially love this chair from Ikea. All it needs is our Appellation Turkish Towel draped over the back.
Hello Yellow

Hello Yellow

Spring’s imminent arrival in Napa Valley means one thing: cheerful, bright yellow mustard everywhere! That pop of sunshine-color was the inspiration for our newest Barrel Bracelet color, which we were both excited to wear while traveling this month. Anne rocked hers on her annual "girls trip" to LA, and I sported mine in Hawaii for my birthday celebration with kids in tow. Wherever we happen to be heading [more often than not, to the grocery store], we love looking down to see a small dose of sunshine and a reminder of home! Here's a few other yellow delights that we love...

1. Napa Valley may be famous for the carpet of yellow that’s rolled out every winter, but Dijon, France is the home of another, equally fabulous mustard that we can’t live without. We use it spread on grilled cheese sandwiches (Croque Monsieur! Ooo la la) and whisked into olive oil and vinegar for salad dressing. maille.com

2. Our other favorite yellow flower: daffodils. They are easy to find at most supermarkets, including Trader Joes and with their low price tag, we’ve been known to fill every room in the house with a bunch or two. traderjoes.com

3.Hello new barrel bracelet colors: Yellow and Peacock. We wear these everywhere: work, home, dinner out with our husbands, at the movies with friends, everywhere. oliveandpoppy.com

4. We both loved the yellow sundress Emma Stone wore in La La Land. The truth is that dress would more more at home in wine country than the City of Stars, but alas it was made just for the movie. We’re consoling ourselves while coveting this pretty number instead. nordstrom.com

5. Cindy Paulson set a benchmark for wine country dining when she opened Mustards restaurant in 1983. Three decades plus later, she’s still rocking it and her cookbook eponymously named for the restaurant is the best. What to make this month: Lemon Meringue Pie of course! amazon.com
