It is just a fabulous every day perfect tote…… Super roomy, the softest leather, just a great looking very chic hold everything tote.

I am excited to offer some beautiful steals and deals today, all way below retail, not too early to start stocking up on Christmas gifts….its almost hard to type that word knowing its not so far away.

To my surprise, got a few more in of some previously sold out steals and deals. I was actually really surprised to get these in as they company was sold out but was of course very happy to see them when I started opening up the boxes. Only about 3-4 of each item so you know the drill contact me at theenchantedhome@gmail.com? if interested!

4.? Stunning trellis white and blue planter 11″ x 6″ $55.00
5. This lovely blue and white planter with ginger jar, perfect for an orchid! 8.5″ x 6.5″ $48.00

And this planter with a potted orchid on a chest in my own home

6. No its not Herend but looks just like it, beautiful elephant figurine 6.5″ x 5.5″ $40.00

One of my vendors brings back antique porcelains from China twice a year and offers them up, they go fast but as of right now, these are available….they are surprisingly more affordable than you might think but more than the new, take a look…..if anything is calling your name just contact me for more information.

And finally, this is an exceptional steal and deal but let me explain. I met with this? manufacturer through a friend and fell in love with these wallets. They have made goods for Valentino, Fendi and other very notable names. The leather is baby’s butt soft. Anywho, working on possibly a few things but in the meantime getting in 40 of these magnificent wallets within next two weeks.
?I LOVE these wallets. We all know a wallet of exceptionally great quality leather could easily fetch a pretty penny, then you attach a designer name and the sky’s the limit. Well you are getting that same quality minus the nametag but look how gorgeous! I am going to sell them for $60.00 each which is a super bargain. If you are interested in reserving any of them email me, with the holidays around the corner, I know these babies are going to go very fast. I am a handbag maniac and trust me, these are exceptional and the leather could not be softer, or the wallets any prettier.?
They will come in brown, black and navy.

Some great items don’t you think? I am planning on adding some new goodies over the next month or so and will of course keep you posted. I am always on the prowl for things that I love and at the sake of sounding like a broken record, I really only sell things that I truly absolutely love and believe in!

And speaking of loving, here is the lowdown on the “Blue and white love” contest……

My contest theme for November is not surprisingly “Blue and white love“. You know what that means..send in your pictures of your blue and white anything…however you love to display it or use it in your home, your favorite vignette, a beautifully displayed ginger jar, your plate collection, your blue and white nails, your pet wearing a blue and white something….whatever it may be.

Calling all blue and white lovers!!

Good morning! Hope your week is off to a good start. Over here, I have a list a mile long of things to get busy cracking on (mostly house related) so no rest for the weary…it’s already another busy week. When I start my morning with a healthy dose of blue and white, I just know its going to be a great day. Every now and then I have to post on blue and white, to give me my regular “fix” of this scrumptious combination. It just never gets old……..what can I say!!
?I am also super excited to have added some truly exquisite new pieces (below) so this was a perfect post to tie it all in. Hopefully some of these images are new to you, while some I realize you have seen…….they are just too pretty to not include. The truly wonderful things about blue and white is that literally it goes with every single color. I dare you to find a color that it doesn’t work with. Impossible!! How about you, has blue and white-itis? struck you too? Happily there is no cure in sight. So lets take a look at blue and white at its very best………
?Just some of my very favorite blue and white goodies!!
Ahhhh, this is sheer blue and white perfection accented by soft earth tones, Scott Snyder
?Like a breath of fresh air, this room is so crisp, clean and gorgeous! Verandah House

Carolyne Roehm long known for her love of blue and white always gets it right!!

Love the idea of putting a bunch of different shapes and shades of gingers jars together as a beautiful vignette, Sroka Design?

The blue and white is simply gorgeous against the rich warm brown, Alex Papachristidis
I love the use of blue and white against dark dramatic walls, Jeffrey Bilhuber

?William Eubanks used blue and white to? perfection in this ultra fabulous room!

Guess where and the following are also from my home…proof of my undying love for all things blue and white!

My newest ginger jars “put to the test” and they passed with flying colors:)
This kind of left me speechless…had to include it but how to describe this? A shrine to blue and white? An overdose of blue and white? A room you don’t want to be in during an earthquake? Yes to all the above!

I must share with you the newest members of my blue and white family! I just added them to my online shop and I have to say these are some of my most favorite pieces! Absolutely stunning. What I love about them is that they have a lot of white in them so they are a beautiful contrast when using them as part of a grouping…..take a look!

Late week musings……

Hi there and happy Saturday to you all! Took a three day hiatus, had a super busy chock full kind of week. Glad the weekend has arrived!!? Well don’t know about where you are but over here we seem to be regressing with regard to weather. We had a tease a few days ago with near 58 degrees and this morning its 28 with potential snow in the forecast…..mayday mayday! Its getting OLD!! Onto something good…

Something major has happened. Super major. I think as bloggers we all set little goals inside our heads. For me getting to 100 followers was a goal I remember early on, when it was achieved, I swear I did a little happy dance when no one was watching! 100 people in this huge world cared about what I had to say. Well……fast forward two years and another goal of mine was and don’t ask me why on this number (because I truly do not know) was to achieve 5000 subscribers. Ambitious? Yes, I agree, but somehow this was a goal.

And by golly, its been achieved. Is it really possible? 5 THOUSAND people want to know what I have to say? Seriously? OMG…this is really really big in my book and all I can say is thank you, thank you thank you. I am grateful for your friendship, the emails, pictures and support I get from literally all around the world. You cannot imagine the thrill it gave me to click on feedburner stats and see this- 5000 on the button on 3-13-13!!!! Lucky day afterall:)

Total Subscribers: 5,000

Moving along.…by now you know I do love my products. I love trying new things and love even more when I find a real winner. Well…I have found a few winners lately that I feel I must share. I know many of you savvy readers might already know about these products but they are worth the “shout out” just in case because they are fabulous, worth every penny and absolutely products that will become a regular on my vanity!!

7 second leave in conditioner/detangler…this product is all everyone said it is. The girls at the salon I go to swear by this and they did not exaggerate. Leaves my hair (which tangles easily) very easy to comb through and feeling really moisturized. This is the best leave in conditioner I have ever used, its that good! I LOVE this product!! Click here to buy on Amazon.

OK, Marsha from Splenderosa, that glamorous mama who knows a thing or two about beauty told me to try this, she said it was like a healthy drink of moisture for your skin. She was right on the money!! She read that I had bought the caviar cream by La Prarie which I have to say I have only used twice because i got this first and have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it makes my skin feel and look. Its a keeper so thank you Marsha. I could only find it on Amazon, click here to buy…..cannot say enough good things about this cream, great if you have dry skin!


Onto the house.…I play around a lot, part of the fun is moving accessories and things around.Its like the best science experiment in the world:) I changed things around on my living room console yet again and this scenario I believe is a keeper. I love the explosion of the white cherry blossoms which I just added to my oversized ginger jar, its dramatic and elegant and a great way to be greeted as you enter the room. I also added the two whiter jars on either side and a collection of some of my silver frames, take a look……

Have no fear…..a picture is being replaced in the empty frame!!

A peek into the library. Just about done in there, waiting for the small wet bar to be done, a final coat on the floors and its just about ready for its “close up”!

Books……can we seriously ever have enough? I dont’ think so. I finished The Red Book and have to say I really really liked it. Anyone else read it? Another fabulous book is The French Chateau. ? This is a book I have written about before, yes, its that good. I? just gave a copy to a friend for belated birthday,? and have given this a few times as gifts. Unfortunately I see its gone up in price which normally means there aren’t many copies around, but its sooo worth it as it truly takes you to a beautiful special place. She cannot thank me enough, she said it best when she said “its the next best thing to being in the French countryside and living like a true French aristocrat” this book is EXQUISITE!! It portrays beautifully the life, style and traditions of living in a French chateau and highlights many parties. weddings and other day to day? events. Every single page is breathtaking and if you like me, are an incurable Francophile….then by all means you must own this book! Click here to go to Amazon.

?
Store biz……..got in some beautiful new blue and white additions. Of course I had to do the mandatory “test run” so ordered one of each for my own home! Here they are…..
Just added this morning…click here.

Beautiful detailing inside too…..

?And love these highly decorative three emperors!!

?And to show them both being put to good use…….

Got in 5 dough bowls….I know many of you are looking here and there so if interested, first come first serve. I have two 29″, one 21″, one 17″ and one 16″. They are all beautiful! Email me here……

Got two beautiful new bag styles in,? just being added! I love love love these new styles……and they are now up for sale in my newly created Personal Accessories section which will continue to evolve but I have to say I am just loving these super chic and super affordable bags for summer! These will be up later today for sale, limited quantities! Click here to visit.

?This is so darling and chic for a summer time tote!

?Love the shape…reminds me of the straw birkin bag I have wanted forever!! Love the smart navy trim and bamboo closure.

?Comes with a removable navy shoulder strap

?Zippers up with interior zippered pocket

I am back!

Good late afternoon!? I am back. Missed being in blogland…..even for a few days:) Half of my trip (4 days was spent “college shopping”…it was fun, incredibly cold, and adventurous. It was fun being on the road with my son except for when we fought about me wanting to stop and buy an umbrella and be 5 min late (gasp) to a presentation or when we argued about where to stop and eat. Besides that it was just peachy!? We enjoyed the quality time together and seeing the energy of those college campuses just made me want to be 18 all over again. Youth really is wasted on the young:)

?

I was supposed to leave today for VA. but my sister is sick and frankly I am a little wiped out so at my husbands insistence, am staying home and just going to catch up on all kinds of things that need my attention! Nothing like having an unexpected chunk of time to get productive!! So here is what’s new and exciting….

?

?





Got my window treatments done in my kitchen! Love it, it really warms up the space so much and my beloved blue and white fits in beautifully. This is Brunschwig and Fils, Digbys Tent for anyone who wants to know. I think I will have place mats made with my leftover fabric….(taken with my iPhone, better pictures to follow soon)

?

Here is the fabric, it was love at first sight…

?

?

The colors here are horrible…but you get the idea!

?

?


I am always on the prowl for really high quality faux flowers. I love flowers and nothing can replace the real deal but since I like to have them all over, it is both practical and maintenance free to have the faux around along with the real. So I was super thrilled to find the best cherry blossoms and fabulous orchid stems I have seen to date, I ordered a? bunch and will be adding them to my online shop under new arrivals. They are incredibly? real looking, beautiful stems, gorgeous blossoms come in 2 lengths, I opted for the “maximum wow factor” and went with the 54″, and the orchids are simply amazing, here they are…….

?

Mixed two stems of faux orchids with my real orchids…can you tell which is which?

One of my big jars filled with the white blossoms in my hallway
?The pink version
?And on my living room chest……





? Love them…waiting for my next batch to add a few more stems to each jar

?




Getting in some really fabulous new goodies for my shop. I am so excited, haven’t been this thrilled about new goods in a long time! I had mentioned my new tabletop soon to be added, it will up and running in the next day or two along with a tabletop giveaway to celebrate its arrival. Have some stunning new silver additions to my growing family of beautiful silver.? Then got some amazingly beautiful new blue and whites. If you are looking for an incredible and affordable tureen look no more, these are the prettiest I have seen without exaggeration.? So take a look at some of the new goodies! As always if you have any questions/inquires click here to email me. Most of these items are now up in? my online shop, click here to visit me!

?

Adore all these new silver pieces…..

LOVE this new planter…..perfect size for your favorite orchids or flowering plant! So elegant!

And how about these two crested beauties! The larger one is? a large planter or a wastepaper basket, love it for a beautiful bathroom……

Love this tray and actually have this in two of my own bathrooms…..a perfect size for any bathrom vanity or I love it for an elegant way to display spices in the kitchen!

And this gorgeous scalloped serving/display tray is perfect for any entertainer….

Check out these magnificent soup tureens…some of the prettiest I have seen!

This stunning Imari tureen makes my heart sing! Love love love it…..the antique version goes for $2500 and up, this one $165!

Doubles as a gorgeous planter and includes the stand

And love this blue and white beauty….

It is “antiqued” and is an identical replica to one that fetches thousands…….

And adore this new Chinese character ginger jar…perfect size alone, as a pair or part of an existing blue and white vignette!

?This is the perfect chunky jar, I call this the “chunkster” for a big spray of your favorite blossoms, branches, flowers, the size and mouth of the opening are just perfect for centerpiece jar, love this piece!! Brand new…. 16″ by 14″ wide

And for all you dough bowl lovers, I got in a box of four bowls (unexpectedly) and have one left to sell..it is 24″ long by about 12″ wide….beautiful! Email me here if you want it.

And here is how I am loving all this blue and white and silver in my own home…………..

The tureen that doubles as a planter..obviously have not added my moss yet but you get the idea!

? Proof that there is simply no such thing as “too much blue and white”!

?


Thanks for stopping in and wishing you a wonderful evening! I look forward to spending some time in blogland later and and catching up on all I have missed…..until next time! Have a wonderful evening.

Mothers Day- Enchanted Home Style!

Good morning. Hard to believe we are in May. I feel like before we know it we are going to be reminiscing about summer, how fast it flew by, and talking about Labor Day…..yikes! ? I wish we could press a pause button. In any case, next holiday as we all know is Mothers Day! I always try to come up with?something different for my mother other than the predictable outfit, or needlepoint pillows (one of her many loves).

To me, fresh flowers are the best and ultimate gift. But if you are like me, you don’t stop there. I have gotten emails from happy customers (phew) that wanted my suggestions on Mothers Day gifts. A few even suggested this post, so here it goes. I am sharing my top picks from my little shop for Mothers Day. I am also offering guaranteed Mothers Day delivery on all orders placed by May 6th. Exceptions are the planter/statuary and canvas art as these are made to order and take 4 weeks. So, here’s my choices……..for that special mother or if you are like me, a little something for yourself!

From my very popular silver line…..absolutely love this wine cooler/planter. I am in fact giving this very container to my mother in law filled with a beautiful orchid. When she eventually removes it, it can serve as a very elegant wine cooler/champagne bucket. Reminds me of something you would see being used in a grand hotel in Paris…….love it.

Every lady could use a beautiful and elegant etched silver vanity tray either for a makeup table or on a bathroom vanity to place her perfumes.
Another beautiful and popular little tray, this is ideal for a nightstand, to place your rings, watch, phone, lipstick,etc…
This beautiful etched planter is stunning with an orchid, or with a few pretty guest/hand towels.
Another very popular tray, so pretty for a vanity or bar
Another larger planter with beautiful fancy scrollwork, imagine a gorgeous hydrangea plant in this!
You haven’t heard…you cannot be too rich, too thin or have too much silver..lol!
My European line is filled with all kinds of fabulous trviets, dough bowls and cutting boards that are either antique or made of reclaimed woods. Just fabulous for anyone who loves to be in her kitchen!
I don’t think there is anyone who wouldn’t love to receive linens bearing their initial. I offer these fabulous guest towels, dinner napkins and cocktail napkins with an oversized single letter and fancy scrolling. Just got in a large order so most initials are ready to go! ?Such an elegant and feminine gift.
The linen guests towels with a fancy single letter monogram

Offered in ecru on white or white on white

Beautiful detailing…..

The hemstitched cocktail napkins are also really fabulous and great to have on hand

Linen guest towels with fancy black monogram letter

I always describe these incredible gardenia scented candles as my most favorite candle in the world.I discovered them at the Ritz Carlton and to anyone who knows me, this is the official scent of my home! Then to boot, they are poured into the most beautiful crystal hurricanes that serve as wonderful display objects when the candle is gone. A truly gorgeous gift!
Porcelains…..adds instant beauty to any vignette. They are the perfect finishing touch even for those who have it all. Love the addition of Staffordshire dogs to any setting or a beautiful planter or a pretty little box to add to an existing vignette.
Love this darling small tureen, the ormolu detailing is so beautiful

I love these dogs!! They also come in a few fun colors like orange, blue, black. So elegant!

And this beautiful little box which I sell like crazy is a perfect accent for any table/vignette

Or this beautiful little box with the brass finial, looks gorgeous on a stack of coffee table books or as a pair on a table or console.
This is a beautiful scalloped planter that is perfect given with a potted orchid or other flowering plant!
Just got in these new flower vases, stunning!

And for an avid book reader, how about a darling and very well priced pair of bookends!
And finally the pewter line, Vagabond whose things are just incredibly beautiful, true heirloom quality. Just got a bunch in and I swear I wanted to kidnap each and every piece but I was good and promptly packed things up to go to their new homes!! Their items are just exquisite……
This might be me new favorite item….of course got one for myself. One of my new bestsellers!

Check out the detailing!
How adorable are these lab/hunting dog salt and peppers? Love them!!?
I am in awe of the attention to detail…check out the trout in his mouth:)

My little nut bowl in good use……love the little acorn scoop
I want one of EVERYTHING!!!!!
How about this amazing pear branch cheese board? Major swoon.

Incredible attention to details…

Say hello to the Rolls Royce of carving boards, pewter, wood and antler handles!

And these polo player salt and peppers…..have to get a pair for myself.

How about these English saddle napkin rings? This makes me want to have a derby party!
I absolutely have a “thing” for pheasants…..these are just exquisite

I am like a little girl with all my barbies, can’t stop touching them, playing with them and rearranging…..its an addiction!

Also I wanted to tell you, that I ?just added a new tab on my online store entitled “Customers enchanted Homes” which is a place for me to post your pictures. I get sent a lot of pictures from happy customers who want to show me how they have used whatever they have bought from me, so it is my pleasure to post the pictures, and sometimes seeing something in a room as opposed to a stock photo gives a new perspective to said item. If you have bought something from the shop and want to share your inspiration, please send me a picture or you can upload it directly to my site, click here.

Thanks as always for your patronage and support! Wishing you a fabulous day.
