    Well hello! I know it has been way too long since I've written a blog post, but hopefully, most of you have been keeping up with us on my personal Instagram as well as the Giannetti Home Instagram account. Oh, and Steve has started posting on his own Steve Giannetti Instagram account too :)

  • Coming Home after the Thomas Fire...

    What a difference a week makes! This has truly been the longest week of my life. As we speak the Thomas fire has burned 235,000 acres and destroyed 800 structures. We were given the ok to come back home over the weekend. Here's what happened... 

     As the fires burned, our sheep, Linen, Paisley and Cashmere, were safely hanging out at the Earl Warren Show Grounds in Santa Barbara. They were well cared for by the selfless team of volunteers from the Santa Barbara Equine Evac. I had never heard of this organization before now, but they are going to be getting a whole bunch of love (and a fat donation) from me and Steve for the holidays!

  • An Update on the Thomas Fire here in California…

    Before I begin this post I wanted to inform those of you who were planning to join us tomorrow in the store for our First Thursday Event that we have decided to postpone the event due to the terrible firesWe hope that you all are safe!

    Those of you who follow me on instagram may already know some of this information, so my apologies for the repetition…

    I wanted to give all of my Velvet and Linen readers an update on the Thomas fire here in Ventura County. The fire started on Monday night near the beautiful Thomas Aquinas College.
