It was a very merry late afternoon at Atrium Ready To Wear recently when owner Luvi Wheelock teamed with Katherine Phelps and Agate Ranch + Marfa owner/designer Kathy Bracewell to host their lady friends to trays of hot teas, cool toddies and festive bites — and to designer shopping.

Kathy brought in a selection of pieces from her line of handcrafted agate jewelry and showed off the latest designs with embellishments ranging from vintage milagros and rosary seed beads to pearl and turquoise. And, of course, Luvi showed off the designer creations that tempted all of those with holiday parties on their dance cards.

For this intimate gathering, Luvi's husband, Carlos Wheelock, stepped in welcoming guests that included Elizbeth Petersen, Rosemarie Johnson, Katie Brass, Stephanie Cockrell, Liz Lane, Becky McCullough, Carmen Rideau and Lauren Williams.
