This morning we watched Prince William and Catherine Middleton get married.
I remember watching his parents Lady Diana and Prince Charles get married back in 1981.
She looked so beautiful.
|Our vintage Schwinn Bikes|
Did you know that Schwinn used to make all of their bicycles in the USA? Now they don't make any. In fact less that 5% of all the bikes we use in the USA are made here. Hooray for the 5% that are. Areofast is a company that continues to build bikes here in America. You can check them out HERE
Our favorite is Patchwork where hand-crafters gather from around the Country to show off their wares. Last year we had fun hanging out with everyone and we have some big plans for this year. Look for an upcoming blog post for more on this.
|Freshly baked pies|
Especially Apple and Cherry from Polly's Pies (just across from the Santa Ana store). A scoop of ice cream makes it even better.
|4th of July celebrations|
In 1976 a ton of stars-and-stripes themed products came out in celebration of our bicentennial. I just love all that old stuff. I have a collection of old metal cases but my prized possession is my stars-and-stripes motorcycle helmet.

Refreshing Summer Salads
We plant lots of mixed greens in our garden and love to make yummy summer salads.
We're really looking forward to an amazing Summer 2011 and can't wait for all the fun new bags to come out. It all starts this coming first Friday.

|The Moxy is a mix of 2 sizes of seatbelt, the Traditional 2" and the 1 1/4" which, incidentally, is used on Child Car Seats. We named it Moxy because it's a Modified Boxy. Slightly bigger with longer handles and just a little bit smaller than the Large Satchel.|
|It was first introduced in 2009 in the Tough Love collection.|
|Since it was such a big hit we decided to bring it back again in 2010 for the Day after Thanksgiving release of Mashed Browns.|
And don't forget the Forever Blue Jeans wallet. The very first mixed sizes, seatbelt wallet.
The Moxy has the familiar Forever Blue Jeans lining, which is hand silk-screened on actual denim.
And this year for the first time ever we used custom Forever Blue Jeans labels.
Last year I posted a question on the blog: "Would you like to see something new in Forever Blue Jeans next year?" It received almost 30 comments with some great ideas that really helped us when we designed this new Forever Blue Jeans collection. So Thank you everyone who commented. We really appreciate the feedback.
|Melanie normally makes Lunch for us but today she was filming the next First Friday video so I was on my own.|
|So I ordered my usual, Steak Torta with lettuce, tomato, beans and cheese with a roasted pepper on the side. Yummy.|
