I’m thrilled to announce our first Shop to Give Event to benefit The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation!

Shop to Give

I love the community in which I live and work- it is so incredibly supportive of local organizations, businesses, education, the arts – you name it!  As Thanksgiving and a busy holiday season approaches, I wanted to find a way to give back to the community as a small business owner.  I thought long and hard about what type of organization I would like to contribute to (such a difficult choice with so many worthy causes out there!).

I chose The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation because of the incredible work the organization is doing.  The Foundation “serves economically vulnerable mothers and infants by working to increase access to maternal and pediatric health care and support”.  In our community, it is easy to take for granted the medical care available to us.  I was incredibly lucky for having had terrific care for myself and my babies, but that is not the case for every mother out there.  The Foundation looks to help mothers in need, providing them ways to access prenatal and pediatric care.

I am excited to share this event with local India Hicks Ambassador, Reena Borwankar.  She and I share a passion for giving AND style, and have partnered to offer a fabulous night of shopping!  Reena will showcase some of the newest India Hicks line, among a backdrop of gorgeous Pursuing Vintage home decor and art.  Guests will have the opportunity to purchase from either/both Pursuing Vintage and the India Hicks line, with 15% of the proceeds from the event benefiting The Jennifer Bush-Lawson Foundation.

The Shop to Give Event will be held Wednesday, October 25th, from 6-9pm at Pursuing Vintage (260 W. Broad St, Suite A, Falls Church, VA).  Stop in and enjoy a glass of wine while you shop for a great cause.

Those unable to attend the event can still shop online to benefit JB-LF until Oct. 31st.

The onset of fall has me thinking about warmer design elements, and brass is one of my favorites.

The Pursuing Vintage shop has many brass home accessories, however I wanted to share some fabulous ways to add brass or gold in a more permanent way.


I just love the way brass pairs with marble.  Brass or gold accents on the floor are so unexpected – the details can be large (like the veins running off the bar in photo 3) or small (like the simple border around the herringbone floor in photo 5).

Have you used gold in a unique way in your home? I’d love to hear about it or see it!
