It's H O T at Tulips

It's funny how you can have so many different emotions about one thing.  This summer, that one thing for me has been the Sun.

The high here in Norman, OK was 98 degrees today (and it felt like 110).  That's HOT in anyone's book, but I guess it's summer and that's when it supposed to be HOT...right?  As uncomfortable as that kind of heat can make you, it also makes you appreciate a cool drink, a swimming pool, or a snow cone so much more.

On another note, my family and I just got back from a weekend trip to Santa Fe and though it was hot in the day, they have a little something we don't... a nice break in the evenings... man it felt good to have a chill... We were all sitting on the patio together one evening just relaxing and enjoying the sun set.  It is such a perfect painting every evening and you can never see the same sunset twice. I learned to love sunsets watching them with my dad growing up.  I will always cherish those peaceful, beautiful last minutes of the day. I think we have watched over 1,000 of them together.  No matter where in the world you are, it is comforting to know that even when you can't be together you can still see the same sun setting...

So while we have some great summer sunsets left, fill a pitcher with your favorite drink and call your favorite people to come over and enjoy the painting across your little piece of the sky.

Tulips isn't just a home store: it's a lifestyle

As I look back on the philosophy that created Tulips it's cool to see we have stayed true to the ideas, integrity and beauty of the products that make it to our floor... Like a great friend or your favorite movie, they just get better with time.

what is our philosophy? help you transform all those little things you have to do everyday to an expression of your personal style.

Daily routine....morning O.J.


Since I got this jar to keep my juice cold and fresh (only$22)  I have loved waking up to it in the fridge. These adorable mix and match glasses are my new favorite. The carrier is awesome for serving and just setting out. I love having water in a pretty glass, just makes meals a little more special...  

Tulips isn't just a home store: it's a source to help transform your daily routine...When creating a home, there's a lot to take into account... and we want to help--not by offering everything that is out there, but by offering the best of everything out there.

We want to be your source to find your best friend the perfect birthday gift. Your source for a perfect frame for the cutest picture you have ever seen, a source for beautiful glasses to toast a special moment, a great day at work, a special marraige or your little one that just slept through the night!

We put our heart and soul into bringing only the best to you. You can trust us to do the homework, so you don't have to! (more on this to come)
