Introducing: Travel Dapper — Buckwheat Hull Pillows for Men


Shop Update! New Buckwheat Hull Pillows.

Yay! New Buckwheat Hull Pillows! I’m so excited to introduce, “Travel Dapper” — Buckwheat pillows with men in mind. (I’ve listed a few new pillows with YOU in mind as well!) The prints are more masculine and gender neutral: so that the men in your life can stop “borrowing” your Travel Pretty Buckwheat Pillow and use one of their own.  

And the Travel Dapper pillows feature a buckwheat only insert. I think men like lavender, but most of the men I asked said they preferred an unscented insert: so I took their advice. 

Speaking of men. . .  I called this new line for men “Dapper” after this man:


My father in law, Roy (who is 81 in this photo, playing violin at his granddaughter’s wedding). He is the most dapper man I know and a big supporter (and user!) of Mireio’s pillows. He uses his regularly! 

In the coming weeks, I’ll be adding more prints. But in the meantime, there are two indigo pillows and a stunning Liberty of London pillow in the shop right now! (Hurry, “London Calling” is one of a kind buckwheat pillow!) 




Vintage Rhinestone Earrings: Perfect Stocking Stuffers

Start stuffing those stockings. Ok, now say that 3 times really fast!


New to Mireio: Gorgeous Vintage Rhinestone Earrings!

All on either 14K Gold plated or Silver plated ear wires (no nickel!). Most are one of a kind: all would make really lovely gifts. Each is featured on a handmade jewelry card and gift wrapped in a coordinating box with ribbon. So, why not give a little Mireio to someone you love this holiday season. . . and maybe splurge on a pair for you too! Find them in store now! 

(I’m listing all evening: so if a pair grabs your eye and it’s not in the store yet . . . it will be, soon!) 


Hands On

Look at those hands! Pretty colorful, eh? He gets so immersed in his work! Speaking of which, Geo has created a few new silk scarves and they’re showing up in the store this week. They’re wider and longer this time around, which means more ways for you to wear them! Take a peek! 




“Bleeding Heart” . . . is just one of the new silk scarves being listed in the store this week! These are so beautiful– and you have the added benefit of knowing you’re supporting an up-and-coming scientist as he heads off to college! Muah! xoxo You’re awesome! 

Embracing Autumn


A big pile of color! I could almost “jump” into it! 


Mireio is embracing Autumn! Summer’s pastels are giving way to deep, earthy tones. I’m exited to be listing new hand dyed vintage slips inspired by the colors and fragrances of Autumn: luscious blackberries, earthy tea, crisp apples, and falling leaves.  Stay tuned: they’ll be in store on Monday! (if not sooner.) 

Until then, have you thought about your holiday shopping yet? Autumn is a great time to pick up a Travel Pretty Buckwheat Hull Pillow. One for you for all your holiday travels. And one for a friend! With or without lavender! 


Liberty of London Sachets


Liberty of London Sachets

...A shop update on April 1? It’s NO joke!! But it is limited and for a short time… so HURRY!


Playing April Fool’s jokes is so last year! And coincidentally, so was my last shop update! I thought it was time to give you a wee bit of Mireio and start a new April 1st tradition. Gifts not gags! 

And I’m serious about the wee bit part! I’m no longer stocking a full store. My work schedule hasn’t relented: but I’ve missed being creative so I’m making time for small shop updates every 6-8 weeks. Small but mighty. Small but BEAUTIFUL! 

This month’s update is all about Liberty of London. Soft pastel fabrics from the STILE collection (art deco/nouveau themes in blue, salmon pink, green, and yellow) are perfect for this time of year. There are 8 fabric prints to choose from: and you’ll find two handcrafted Art Bear Sachets as well.  

And because I adore you all and to reward your patience and support: I’m creating special gifts with purchase for each of you. Unique, one of a kind, original bits of Mireio just for you when you spend $20 or more.  This month I’ve made these wonderful envelopes from antique sheet music and Liberty of London fabric. Each envelope is unique and includes a Mireio postcard and a tiny lavender sachet (retail: $7.50).  

And if you come LIKE my facebook page, you’ll find an GREAT coupon too!

Friends, it’s not too early to be thinking about Mother’s Day. And between the gift with purchase and an amazing coupon, this might be your moment to get something wonderful for the Moms in your life (and treat yourself in the process!) 

Love you all and thank you for your support.
