I can't believe it has been 15 months since I first met Miss Mary. I never had the pleasure of visiting the original Sweet Peas, but now after a long wait, she is re-opening in Santa Monica. The official Grand Opening is set for 15 May 2010. Tonight, though, is a pre-opening fete from 5p-7p. The address is 1929 Lincoln Blvd. If you are in the LA area, do yourself a favor and stop by.

Me and the fabulous Mary Smilove.

Below are just a couple of pictures from that first soire.

These were just some of the goodies Deb and I took to Mary's. My all-time favorite bag that Deb ever did is just visible in the right corner of this picture. She made the entire bag with the burlap/jute webbing and covered the front with her signature silk roses. Needless to say, it sold right away.

Also long gone, this bag has the unmistakable look of a Deb Hodge bag!

And don't forget to enter my pillow giveaway. Check my last post, if you missed it.
