I know it is Sunday morning and I haven't posted in days. Usually I leave Sunday for lighter posts or not posting at all. A day of rest. Well no rest for me this weekend and today. I've been a little busy.
Am in New York right now! So exciting as usual. I love the city.
I'm loving the city even more this weekend and am even more excited about being here because I am showing the COCOCOZY textiles and home accessories collection for the second time at the New York International Gift Fair.
The fair starts this morning!
I am so happy to be showing the COCOCOZY Classic Collection with luxe linen pillows and throw to buyers from around the country.
Am even more excited to show off my new collection of 100% cotton pillows...all made right here in the U.S.A.!
The cotton collection is more casual, whimsical and playful than the luxury linen line. I love these pillows just as much. My hope is that people really understand that through graphic patterns a person an really change the look of their space with pillows and textiles.
So...only because I've got to run...I'll stop chatting and you take a look at the latest from me - The COCOCOZY Cotton Collection!

I am also showing some fun new colorways in the luxury linen collection, new throws in cool patterns and colors and even a line of new black label candles! Can't wait to get to the show floor!
Must mention that I am thrilled that I'll be joined in the booth for these next few days by fab assistant KS (a recent college grad who loves pink) and amazing sales rep JG who came up from Charleston, SC to help in the booth for the week. On Wednesday, my sweet sister (big sis - she is actually only 10 months older than me) will also be helping me out in the booth; she's a busy attorney but is coming to New York from Los Angeles just to lend a hand. Yesterday, WA, KS's friend from college, also came on board for the day to help with set up. Again, feel very lucky for all of the support and wonderful people I have surrounding me. Very lucky.
Hope you enjoyed this sneak peek of the COCOCOZY Cotton Collection. Stand by later this week for more images of these and other pillow and throws. I also, have a back log of several NEW TO MARKET segments on other manufacturers' fantastic offerings...will get to that too.
In the meantime, I hope you are having a restful weekend!
P.S. I mentioned on COCOCOZY Twitter the other day...that when I was flying to New York on Thursday night, I hand carried over 150 pillow covers and probably 30 throws with me. I get paranoid about shipping all of my samples. Anyhoooo...ran into uber designer Michael S. Smith at the airport (Michael decorated the White House if you recall) in Los Angeles, we had nice little chat before boarding the flight to NYC. Upon arrival at JFK, I again was catching up with Michael at the baggage claim. He was efficiently and neatly packed in two small bags. And then there was me...8 huge pieces of Tumi luggage and one cart. Michael was a true gentleman, he saw a damsel in distress (or a damsel who had over packed) and took pity on me. Before I knew it, Michael had grabbed several pieces of my luggage and was wheeling them out of the secure area into the safe hands of my driver Ken. Uh, can I say nice guy? I'll say it...what a nice guy! Also, did I mention it was 1am in the morning! What are the chances of that situation happening? Anyhooooo...Michael, if you read this...thank you!!!!
P.P.S. If you are attending the New York International Gift Fair this week, please remember to stop by the COCOCOZY booth. We are downstairs at the Javits Center in the At Home Textiles division. Booth #7849! Hope to see you there!
