What's New Pussycats?

Autumn is here, Bella's!!

But what is with all this rain?? 'Tis crampin my style (not to mention suddenly giving me very curly french poodle bangs!). It's hard to run with furniture in the rain, but we managed to get two windows changed, an Autumn shop reconfiguration & new products into the door--Yipppeee! here goes:

Window 1:

French Harvest. Linen pillows, wicker bowls & baskets,dried magnolia leaves, vintage industrial lightbulbs, old spool of soft baling twine, cotton bud garland, antique piece of sheer lace. I love this window. Something about it triggers something in my soul and makes me calm. The bench is made from a headboard/footboard set and is painted a gorgeous grey-green. Now this colour is my new obsession. I found an old french dresser that had only one drawer and was unusable, but the colour was insane! So, I took it to the paint store and had them match it with their handy-dandy matching machine to create the exact recipe to recreate the colour and voila! I want to paint everything this colour, these days-but I need to pace myself. The one positive thing is that everything I paint in this colour flies out the door, so no one gets a chance to really tire of it anyway!-lol

Headboard Bench: 175$
Small French Pillow: 15$
Traversin Bolster: 65$
Large wicker basket: 75$

Window II:

Haute Harvest.
Funky. Whimsical. Playful. Eclectic. The palette of creme, black & yellow is perfect for Autumn. The danish modern chair is a vintage piece that has been reupholstered in a fabulous vintage-y floral pattern. The old crate on the side brings it back down to earth. Pillows, pillows, pillows!, The backdrop of embroidery hoops painted black with black crows randomly resting throughout is as spooky as we go this year. The vintage black phone (remember those?!) is a must have! AND....the chalkboard dressform-- FABULOUUUSS! (in my best Oprah voice). Always fun to the Autumn windows! :o)

Danish Modern Chair: 125$
Pillows: 10$-25$ each
Vintage Black Phone: 35$
Old Crate: 20$

Mary from Earthway came in with a bunch of goodies (which have been literally flying off the shelves, since she came in!):

Soaps (6,99 each):
Fig & Vine

Sugar Scrubs (15$)
Rosemary Apothecary (has a slight hint of patchouli)

Speaking of some Press--KAZA got some of their own!!
A super-huge article was written about us in the Citizen of Laconia Newspaper! It was a FULL page PLUS a little more on a second page! Thanks to Kathi Hopper, for asking really good questions and making it fun for me to remember the beginnings of KAZA. Read it HERE

Did y'all know that Matthew Meads' AUTUMN book is now available at KAZA?? Flying out like hotcakes, we'll have to tell him to bring MORE, you bunch of crazy shoppers!!

Also! KAZA is back open on Saturdays!

Other than that, the behind-the-scenes of KAZA is making me a very very busy woman! If you see me pop into the shop looking a bit crazed, just know alot of groovy stuff is happening! :o) xox

Hugs to you all!

Ciao Bella's!
