Hi there…and happy Labor Day weekend! Hope you are having a great and relaxing weekend. Hard to believe its just about over! We have had a non stop weekend and am at the beach finally relaxing…… must say I am looking forward to getting home and tomorrow just helping my son get ready for school and do some last minute required reading and just catch my breath and catch up a little. As I had said earlier in the summer, the online shop was very much “open for biz” during the summer but I was not adding or expanding over the summer. I am however doing a bunch of fun things come fall and hard to believe fall is on our doorstep! So today’s post is all about whats new and exciting at The Enchanted Home, as always feel free to contact me with any questions. I am also hosting a lovely French linen giveaway, all details at the bottom of this post……UPDATE AS OF MON. MORNING- ALL FRENCH TOWELS AND MINI STAFFORDSHIRE DOG LAMPS ARE UP IN MY STORE BY POPULAR REQUEST! UNDER NEW ARRIVALS!Also don’t forget to check out my really neat guest post over at Party Resources all about how I would plan my wedding if I were to get married today…it’s worth a peek. Click here to visit!I love this line of monogrammed goodies. Come holiday season these really make the perfect gift! Best part? Not only the price (and I am discounting 15-12% off retail) but the turnaround, generally your monogrammed fully personalized order is out the door within 72 hours! SO this even appeals to those last minute gift givers who want to look like they put weeks and weeks of though into their gifts:) Here’s a sampling of what will be up for sale in the next few days. Also the sterling silver monogrammed necklaces make one heck of a great gift. Love all these fabulous products because I have a total obsession with monograms….. These are sterling silver and such an awesome gift! Cannot think of a prettier way to dress up a powder room vanity then with a dish of these! Or the square version, different scents are offered and they all smell scrumptious! Love the idea of a monogrammed candle Martini anyone? Awesome gift for anyone who loves to entertain in style This is a practical and super useful gift Monogrammed guest towels are a practical and beautiful accent in any bath And love the carved wood cutting boards and serving boards, fabulous gift!! These will all be up and for sale somtime in the next 2-3 days. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions prior to that, click here. Now tell me..who wouldn’t LOVE to receive any of the above with their personalized monogram or name on it?? Its the ultimate gift! I am also very excited about my French linen bar/kitchen towels. The patterns are just gorgeous and would add a lot to any kitchen or bar. Here’s a number of my favorite designs all now in stock! Again a wonderful gift, alone or accompanied by a cutting board, kitchen accessory or bottle of wine. Here they are in my own kitchen being put to good use…. The ever so popular squirrel bowls are back! This is just the sweetest nut bowl I have ever laid my eyes on. A great little conversation piece and the quality is outstanding with a capital O! Can you say adorable for this mini staffordshire dog lamp? I am in love, sold as alone or as a pair, these are those kind of lamps you can put just about anywhere. Here’s mine being put to good use…… Next to my blue and white planter that doubles as an elegant mail holder! Speaking of Staffordshire dogs, the pair of blues are back in stock.
