Good morning! So nice that its the weekend. We have a few things on the agenda but nothing crazy and I am looking forward to some relaxing time spent at home sans workers…woo hoo! Its suppose to rain today, so its a good day to catch up. We have a party to attend and I am always stuck with the dreaded “what to wear” dilemna, don’t know if I have the energy to brave the crowds and go find something to wear. Oh well….guess its back to my boring but safe black dress! I have been very very busy this week with the online store. Its a lot of work, but its truly a labor of love. Getting emails and pictures from excited customers makes my day like you cannot believe. To hear how excited they are just makes ME so happy! So thank you…keep them coming! I am working very hard to get the orders out the door, and the first month no doubt there are small hiccups, but rest assured I am working hard and aim to please. I would like to announce the winner of the beautiful crystal hurricane candle, part of the new line I am carrying which I am super excited about, and apparently many of you are too! Congratulations goes to…………… Lillian!

Moving onto to the world of design………I only discovered this talented design firm through a friend whose parents had their beautiful Florida family home decorated by this fabulously talented group. Then as I always do when I see something I love, I explored some more and quickly ?realized this was a name worth sharing. I am sure some, perhaps many of you might already know of them but for me this was a new (and exciting) discovery! I think their sophisticated work speaks for itself so without further adieu…here we go! Would love to know what you think of their style! Click here to visit their beautiful website. Enjoy!
