Change can be hard, scary and down right painful.
But it can also bring with it,
excitment, renewed passion, and joy.
There are some changes happening at BYCC.
My mom of 39 years and my business partner of 5 years
has decided after much thought and prayer
to retire from the store.
We took a chance sitting on my front porch 5 years
ago that we could make a go of this little
business and we "went for it!"
Since I was a kid, I can remember decorating together, looking
at her Country Living Magazines over and over and over.
I get my love of decorating, and "nest fluffing" from her.
It hasn't always been an easy 5 years. 
 Soon after we opened she had
both knees replaced, and just a few months after that,
she was diagnosed with
stage 4 lung and brain cancer.
By the grace of God, she pulled through
and is now CANCER FREE!
We have laughed, cried, yelled, and loved and
laughed some more in the last 5 years...
but now its HER time. 
Her time to just be.
Don't worry, you will still see her at the store from time to time.
In fact, I bet we can't KEEP her away.
When the love of what we do is in ya, its just in ya
and sometimes you just need an outlet.
Im proud and honored to have built our store together.
I couldn't have done it without her.
Love ya Mom.
Im so very excited to announce my new business partner,
who also has the same passion for decorating, and creating.
One would think, we were all cut from the same mold!
Well, we are!
Meet my friend and COUSIN,
Im sure most of you already know her since
she's been an employee at the store for over a year.
To know Robin is to love Robin.
Her bubbly personality, creative mind, and energy
is just what I was looking for in a new partner.
Welcome aboard partner!
I hope I don't get on your "last nerve"
to often cause it's gonna be "REAL NICE!"
I am so excited and relieved to officially announce this news,
and get moving forward....

Call me crazy..
but I have a new love of
Not ALL things owls...
basically just cookie jars.
Which is why you can now find

at BYCC. 
If you are familiar with Anthropologie,
then you know they have some
super cute owl cookie jars
that are pretty pricey.
Our little guy is only $24.50!!!!
Yes I know...compared to $128
that is a STEAL!

I wanted to show you how I used mine in my kitchen.
He is sitting next to my Anthro one that my
mom and dad gave me for Christmas last year.
I LOOOVE them.
One more, is all I need.. really, just one more.

that is so true,
at least in MY case.

We have been super busy
checking in, unpacking and pricing
our new fall and Christmas items.
Hold on to your hats guys..
this may possibly top
any other fall or Christmas season
we have had yet!
It's gonna be GOOD!

Scent of the month of August is..
Breakfast at Tiffany's
Its a very unique and pretty scent
that you have to smell in person to appreciate.
Enjoy it at 20% off ALL month long!

Also, we are having a summer sale on select
dresses and tops.
There is still a great selection left so if you've had
your eye on something just remember,
supplies are limited and all sales are final.

New dresses and tops arrive

These are available in small, med, and large.
Hold tight all you "real" women with curves...
we are searching for a curvy plus line
