My tap class and THE HAND JIVE

For those of you who don't know I love to TAP.  My mother was a tap teacher, and I used to tap as a youngster and as a college student.  So now, I"m taking  a tap class here in La Canada where I live taught by a really fun young woman named Deborah Gillins.  It is a BLAST....and tonight we added a bit to our routine that is based on The Hand Jive.  For those of you who don't know what that is....you have to check this out. 

As we prepare for FALL

Ok...this is so early, but I just put the Fall FLAX Coats up on the website to get a jumpstart on the fall previews.  Take a look and let me know what you think.  Last year we had no coats from FLAX and I, for one, really missed the collection.  Hoping you will enjoy these soft, cuddly coats.

TT Staff takes Scarf Tying to The Women's Room

Tender Treasures staff members Megan, and Mayra accompanied me on an outing one afternoon to The Women's Room in Pasadena, a safe daytime refuge for women who are alone and homeless or at risk of homelessness. What we found was a loving environment where women gather to rest, socialize and support each other.

We were asked to provide a program for the women on the last Thursday of the month last month.....a special day when they celebrate birthdays and have a little party. I decided that we would take scarves from Tender Treasures for everyone and we would "Play Dressup" with them, teaching the women how to use this simple, square or oblong piece of fabric as a wonderful and playful accessory. We had a blast, and hopefully so did the women at The Women's Room.
