Hello and happy Friday to you. This has been one busy week, so many balls in the air! Exciting things are happening over here and there is a lot to tell you about. I like to do these little updates on the shop site a few times a year to give you a heads up about all that is happening or will happen.
I also have included a couple of very short polls and for your time and feedback, I am offering a beautiful giveaway to one lucky Enchanted Home reader (details at bottom). So consider this a bit of a newsletter about all that is happening over on this end. Ready to begin? Let’s go…
1 MY NEW SITE!
Yes just in case you were wondering, no it has not been abandoned and yes, we are very much working on it behind the scenes, it is not an easy task and it has gone well well beyond schedule. At this point I am not so much focused on the time anymore as I am about getting it right. It is really coming along and I can safely say we are in the final stages which is great news!
So I am not really adding much to the current site as it doesn’t make sense, I know there will still be small things here and there to be tweaked but I am hoping that within 2 weeks we will go live. To be continued….
Well as you know the container just arrived a few days ago and though I am sure that I cannot get too excited having done this many times now, sure enough I am wowed by it all and always drive home with my fair share. Somehow I find a place:)
So we have been super busy getting a ton of orders out the door. By tonight every single one will have shipped, no easy feat! These items will be online but right now as I am between my current site and soon launching the new one, they will not be available until then. Click here to see porcelains.
I will soon be offering a presale on the last container for 2016! The last container of 2016 will be here by early Nov (by Nov 4th). So many new and exciting pieces are going to be offered, I hope to do this in the next week to ten days so do stay tuned, you will not want to miss this. Here is a little peak at some of the new items coming in…
Getting in more mini foo dogs in a wide variety of colors including gold!
And I am getting a huge number of the ever so popular mini blue and white foo dogs in anticipation of the holiday rush. Believe it or not I had to even give up a pair for myself to fulfill an order, so I too cannot wait to get them!
Loving all the mini bud vases I just got in, they are so beautiful and so practical, I have them in several areas of my home
Just got in a really magnificent bounty of silver. I mean, I am not bragging but you just don’t see silver like this around anymore. It’s either old and antique and very often quite expensive. Sometimes not in great shape or needs major work. These look old but are brand spanking new and polished to perfection. They really are exquisite and even prettier in person. Click here to view silver.
I will be getting in a small shipment of acorn and equestrian themed mint juleps hopefully around Oct. 20th, so stay tuned.
This candelabra is just beyond gorgeous!
Seriously considing having 30 of these made and need to make a decision within 3 days….would order 30 pieces just in time for Thanksgiving/Christmas/holiday season. These as you might know can be very expensive, I would sell them for $250-270. Really fabulous quality, would love your input!
So much buzz on these beautiful ornaments, I cannot wait to decorate my tree! It is going to be a totally different tree this year and I am very excited! So did a presale on the first order which is due here on or around Oct 8th, they cannot come soon enough. Then did a presale on a second bath which will be here late Oct/early Nov.
THE FOO DOG ORNAMENT! I also worked don and created the cutest foo dog ornament (by popular demand). I have not gotten the finished one back but it will be a blue and white foo dog. So, in the name of time I am going to offer them through this post for presale. These are in production and will be here around Nov. 10th. Today and the promo coming up will be the only time you can order these (limited numbers) it will be blue and white and stand 5″ tall it is $13.00 (shown with primer) Isn’t he darling!
And then just when I decided I was not going to do colored ornaments this year, I got back the samples of the red/white, green/white and gold/white ornaments and changed my mind. I was smitten and had to get these done too.
So really would love your input via a short poll after the pictures. I am accepting orders on these now (min 2 per style) and will offer them in an upcoming promo (within a few days) and today and that promo will be the only time to take advantage of the special pricing.

I also have a big batch of new stunning lamps being made as well as a return of the 36″ and a new smaller size 24″ bamboo lantern, these are very special and I am really looking forward to having them back in stock! Click here to see all chinoiserie tole.
I had worked on this planter and decided to have a sample made. Just got back the sample back of the incredible highly intricate planter and it has me dreaming. I am in love with it.
This is a more expensive planter as it is much more labor intensive, all done by hand! I will offer this in much more limited quantities. The size is 23″h x 15″w and the price is $425.00 which is heavily discounted. It can be finished in any color of your choosing. I have a small order of them in production now. If you want to order contact me at email@example.com
A big batch of gorgeous lamps and lanterns will be coming as well…..here is an in progress peek, I love seeing them being made, such an art and all done by hand! It really makes me appreciate these even more…..
And the very popular bamboo lanterns will be available now in two sizes 36″ and 24″
HOLIDAY ARRANGEMENTS. So I am also going to offer a limited number of super elegant holiday arrangements plus I am very excited to have partnered with a magnolia farm and we are going to be preselling arranged bunches of magnolia tied together that you need to just drop into any container. Click here to see all custom florals.
There is nothing that says elegant holiday like magnolia. Here are a few of the gorgeous arrangements that will be offered soon-
Could so see a pair of these flanking my fireplace mantle!
These will come in ivory and black, perfect for consoles, chests and dining tables
Here is an idea of the magnolia in various containers (pardon the pictures taken on the fly with a cell phone). Plus will offer presales on thick luscious magnolia garland and magnolia wreaths. Would love your input on these as well-
HOLIDAY CANDLES IN BLUE AND WHITE. I am excited about these….filled with an incredible triple scented gardenia candle, this beauty will grace any elegant home in the most wonderful way that only blue and white can.
These are being made as we speak and hold 40 oz of candle, so they will last a long time. Being triple scented and from my favorite candle manufacturer (who does all the candles for the Ritz Carlton), means the scent permeates every room so beautifully. These should be available sometime later October (limited numbers coming in).
MONOGRAMMED NAPKINS. Will offer a whole new set of fonts and colors plus cocktail napkins, these will be on the new site though they are available now. Here are some examples-
And one final question- (optional)
Wow this post reminds me of why I love doing what I get to do every day! And on top of all these goodies, I have some odds and ends coming in in limited numbers, magnificent cashmere/lace shawls and wraps, luscious incredible throw blankets and plenty more.
So as you can see I am one busy elf gearing up for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Seeing that we are almost in Oct. it is not a minute too soon to start planning!
One lucky winner is going to win this fabulous new silver water pitcher from the newest collection. Perfect for the upcoming holidays!
