I could not be happier for my dear friend, Monika.  She has filled her online store, Splendid Willow Avenue, with the most wonderful things.  Since I am fortunate to have Monika as a local friend, I have been able to see almost all her new merchandise in person and have fallen in love with every single piece.  I love that she offers unique items and has stayed true to her Scandinavian roots.

I'm ordering this little number, the Splendid Silver Bar NecklaceYou can wear it with anything!

This one is a beauty too.  How gorgeous is this Chunky Bead Necklace in green?!  It comes in 4 stunning colors and the glass beads are exquisite.

Remember when Monika was featured in Rue magazine? She was wearing the white necklace in this photo.  Her son William is such a sweet boy...

These Mouse in a Matchbox are even better in person.  The quality is unbelievable.  I can think of countless kids to give these to.  You should really think about stocking up.  Dare I say, Christmas?  The perfect stocking stuffer for the kiddos.  When Monika first showed them to me, her kids were playing with them for hours.

And the tiny Wooden Pram... the cutest!

Don't forget to get the High Chair too.  A mouse does have to eat after all!

Hello, happy Pink Pig.  Every little one needs something to snuggle with...

And these Sheep Skin Pelts... Be still my heart!

Don't forget about the Ilse Jacobsen boots.  Fall is coming and you wouldn't want your feet to get wet in the rain.  Many colors and sizes to choose from...

So, what are you waiting for?  Check out Splendid Willow Avenue!
