Janet Hill--A Favorite Thing...

People often ask me what my favorite things are at Clever Girl, and Janet Hill's marvelous art work is always at the top of my list.  We have custom framed prints, greeting cards, and her delightful book, Miss Moon: Wise words from a Dog Governess from this talented Canadian artist, and I LOVE THEM ALL!

Her women are strong, elegant and of a slightly different era, all whilst remaining very fresh and vibrant.  They're the kind of girls you know you'd have an adventure with...and drink champagne while doing so. You know we like our animals around here, and Janet absolutely captures them too, whether it's a pink poodle, exotic chicken or a sweet kitty.  

We have a revolving selection of these lovely 8 X 10 prints in gold gilded frames, in addition to a selection of greeting cards. For the children (or dog-lovers) in your life, the delightful book, Miss Moon: Wise Words from A Dog Governess, is utterly charming.  
Miss Moon imparts twenty important lessons to her furry brood. Some are practical, some are playful, one or two are a little unusual, but all are necessary for the raising of happy, healthy and well-mannered dogs (and humans).

 And, coming in early 2019, Miss Mink: Life Lessons for a Cat Countess.   Miss Marcella Mink and sixty-seven of her favorite feline friends live happily in her big house by the sea. Collected here are Miss Mink's twenty cat-approved lessons, from the benefits of a good grooming and an afternoon nap to valuable advice on friendship and diet.

Be sure and look for these delightful items in the stationary department the next time you're in.  I think you'll agree they are all just darling!

"Fruits" of Summer

Spring has turned into summer, and the berries are here!  Hurrah!  
Make a note:  The Western Springs Farmer's Market has started...every Sunday from 9-1.  We have a few juicy fruits ourselves...
I have no idea how one would set out to bake this adorable strawberry roll cake (if you know, please tell me) but we do have the super cute berry lunch tote and the straws, which are incredibly sweet...

Stonewall Kitchen never disappoints with their signature, world famous, Wild Maine Blueberry Jam.  We sell a frightening number of cases of this blue magic in a jar.  Weekend brunch calls out for the sweet tang of this fruity jam.  Delicious on good old vanilla ice cream, I might add...

As you turn thought to vacation, BBQ's and trips to the lake house, remember that we have lots of lovely, thoughtful gifts that will be remembered long after the party is over.  We're so happy to wrap everything for you and get you off to the party even faster!!!!
Here's to a smashing summer!!!
