Hello and happy Wednesday morning, slowly adjusting to my new “home”. Slowly is the operative word:) I am, as said before indeed a creature of habit and don’t do well with change but I am also very stubborn and the combination can at times be toxic but also fuel to “keep on truckin” so here I am and even the tiniest little success (like adding a blog successfully to my blogroll) inspires me to? get up and do a happy dance. Still tweaking as we go along:) I hope to eventually report that WordPress was worth all the stress tears, screaming matches, wine and lost sleep.

Through this change I realized just how non tech savvy I really am. Here I was all smug thinking because I am now on Instagram that I “in the know”…ha! When everything and I do mean everything starts sounding like a foreign language, you know you have crossed over to the dark side:) RSS feeds, SEO, Genesis, plugins, huh?%#@*^*&^? Totally lost on me but have no fear I am marching on………….and learning despite the growing pains so thanks for coming along for the ride…I promise the best really is yet to come! And subscribing issues should all be worked out between today and tomorrow (to many of you who emailed me).

For all my fellow bloggers who had me on their blogrolls (thank you)! and who have had issues updating me on their feeds, below is my official feed address, please put this one into your blogroll and we should be good to go. I tested it on my blog and it works:) Thank you in advance for redoing this and for your patience:)


OK moving on to prettier and far more exciting subjects…my newest line! I have been a longtime fan of Antica Farmacista. I was hooked the very first time I was given one of the beautiful diffusers as a gift. My entire home smelled so heavenly…I was a fan for life! So I am super excited to be carrying the line in my online shop. They are now up as today on my online shop, click here to see!

As you know? my shop is a carefully curated one stop shop of all? things I love, from my beloved blue and whites to classic mainstays like silver and monogrammed linens, boxwood and belljars, and more. So this is a prefect compliment to my growing collection. I am carrying diffusers of all the scents I am featuring here and with some scents additional products like room sprays, bubble bath and lotion. I am “testing” out the line for now but hope to expand, this is by far not only the prettiest line of bath/body products but they are masters of the universe with their scents!! So a giveaway is in order!


I have chosen my five most favorite scents and am happy to announce by tomorrow, that they will up on my online shop…..woo hoo! There is nothing in the world like walking into a home that smells good! I keep the diffusers in all the bathrooms and have room sprays everywhere. I spray sheets with them and cannot get enough of the scents.

The moisturizing lotion is amongst one of the best I have ever used….I am a “lotionaholic” so trust me I know these things:) Take a look at how pretty, and how I wish you could smell through the computer screen! They are just “beyond”! Details on giveaway at bottom of post.

Had a little “photo sesh” with the new goodies…..

This is the Bergamot and Ocean Aria, a amazing concoction of soft jasmine, bergamot and lavender…so wonderful!

DSC_1012 DSC_1013 DSC_1015 DSC_1016 ? And Acqua as the name implies,? smells like a sea breeze with a subtle trace of slight sweet musk, yum!DSC_1017 DSC_1018 DSC_1019 ? And of course the original fragrance that made me a believer! The Peonia, Gardenia and Rosia. Heavenly combination of rose, peonies and gardenia!DSC_1020 DSC_1022 DSC_1023 DSC_1025 DSC_1026 And then there is Ala Moana when you want to take that vacation smell home with you…this reminds me of laying on a hammock on a deserted island, amazing scent of tuberose, gardenia, jasmine and plumeria…so good! ala-moana_500-ml-250-ml_00 ? And last a new scent, Spring blossoms? and in perfect timing for spring! A mesmerizing scent of spring….violet, jasmine, amber and a sweet musk, just amazing! spring-blossom_500-ml-250-ml_00

Yes I do take my scents very seriously! Everything is in stock and ready to ship so click here to see these wonderful new additions on my online shop!

All you need to do is visit my shop site (click here)? come back here and tell me an item that tickled your fancy and that you would love to own (check out all the new lamps while you are at it:)!

What a great new line, Tina and I love the bottles – as important as the scent to me! Your shop and new home look so pretty – love the watercolor urns. The linens are all so beautiful, but I’m still wanting the dough bowls and bread boards! We are in the throes of a blog remodel to WordPress and are scared to death with the transition…I keep waiting to read – it’s AMAZING – so happy I did this, from you – any advice?!

Lynn on

I love all the blue and white and also the Greek key hurricanes. Great giveaway!

Hi Tina, your blog looks beautiful, its still “you” but updated and I love it. Hope the worst is over for you.

Hi Tina,
Glad that everything is coming together for your blog. Hopefully the aggravation will become a distant memory soon!

Am going to go try the new link, thanks.

Room diffusers are wonderful. (My favorite scents are lemon, apple, vanilla, and cinnamon things.)
Saw the ones above are florals / woodsy. Someone will love what they win:)

Hi- what a great giveaway! I don’t know this brand, but would love to.

I took a look at the shop and I must say the large must- have handbag in Bluebell is gorgeous. Would love to have that one in my collection. : )

Eliza Beth on

The new link works perfectly:) 🙂

Sara on

Wow Tina beautiful line. I would like to order a few products but cannot find them online. I will email you, maybe they are not there yet. My favorite thing of all is your blue white collections and your silver planters (I own two and love them). Your collection just gets better every day and its so nice to have a “little enchanted home” in my own home.
Also the new flowers are incredible I cannot wait to place my order!

Your blog btw is looking amazing, don’t change a thing, trust me it looks “A OK” on this end!
My favorite things (there are many) are the A.Ingll tote in sky the wrap in light gray, the olive tray and the silver items. You have such great things, keep it coming:-)


Linda R (Phila burbs) on

Good morning, Tina. I’m loving your new website – hang in there. I’m absolutely crazy about birds so I would love to own the porcelain table lamp with the birds on it. Have a great day. It’s snowing again here – sigh.

Maude Ciardi on

Love the cutting boards, also the handbag. Would love to have them. The new product looks great. Excited to try them. Also your flowers!

Things That Inspire on

I love this line of diffusers and soaps. I treated myself to one of the diffusers a few years ago, and it lasted a long time.

I just visited your shop and was amazed at the number of planters you have! I love the garland wreath planter and the artichoke finial.

I added the new feed and you are now showing up in my blog roll!

Hope you have a great day.


Things That Inspire on

My first must have piece is the Silver Fabulous Showstopping Large Planter. It will go right in the middle of my dining room table. It’s perfect and truly fabulous!

Sally on

My dear Tina
It all looks fabulous to me, still as enchantedly and beautifully you, so Im glad you are ‘hanging in there’ with the techno techno.
Like you I am happier to live in a creative land of furnishings, fabrics and flowers ( my brother calls it Planet Philaenopsis :)))
I just wondered, if its practical, could you add the dimensions of your small and medium belljar light fittings?
Thank you and I hope you have a sunny and lovely dayx

Leslie on

Too hard to pick just one item from your shop!!! Anything blue and white, anything silver…I could use a new tote and it sounds like your new line is something I would LOVE to have!!! The new blog looks fantastic!

Arell on

Hi Tina!

If there is anyone that loves your shop, it is me!! You have the most beautiful things and I think I have memorized all of your dreamy merchandise. I love the silver, I love the napkins and today, I noticed a gorgeous orange and white planter. So for today, the planter will be my “favorite”. As usual, your giveaways are so fun. I really love coming to your blog to see what is going on. Thanks so much and have a great day.

Kathy p. on

Hi Tina,
You are getting so many wonderful things in your shop. I love the new line from today’s post. I first saw the diffusers on a trip to England. Today, I would love to have one of your planters for spring flowers!
Thank you for the wonderful give away!

You are getting there, Tina! I just updated my blog roll and my feed and you show up perfectly now!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Antica Farmacista – my favorite home fragrance! As far as my favorite in your shop, you know I love it all, but I am currently adoring the silk flowers (can’t wait until they go into the shop) and the tole lamps and lanterns.

Hope you are having a wonderful day (did you get more snow?) xoxo

Leslie from Around The Table on

Wow Tina, look at this blog! It’s really coming along and I love the top (gotta love blue;) It’s perfect! This is a wonderful line and I adore the packaging. I have the peoni, gardenia, rose.. in one of my powder rooms and can’t wait to buy more! xxL

All your blue & white lamps are stunning. The largest (height) is a particular favorite. Greetings from Dana Point! Enjoyed your post holiday post about my neighborhood & I am really enjoying your site!

Donna on

Oh! My, Tina, it’s sooo hard choosing one I love! I adore your cream & blue stafford shire dogs. They remind me of my Joey (15 yr old Shitzuh) lost this past Xmas. I would love your giveaway home diffuser- I agree with you- there’s nothing better than walking into your home smelling divine! I love everything you do!

Madeleine on

I recently found your shop and LOVE it! I am decorating a home in CT and will enjoy browsing. I am obsessed with blue and white so I would select one of the beautiful footbaths.
I also hope I win the Antica Farmacista give away. I’m a fan!
All the best to you.

So hard to choose a favorite but I am in love with your boxwoods! A new diffuser for spring would be wonderful. 🙂

Hi Tina, welcome back! Thanks for the giveaway of the beautiful diffuser…your descriptions of the fragrances practically make me swoon! At the top of my wish list from your shop are a pair of the beautiful blue and white porcelain vase lamps…they would be perfect atop the chest in my guest bedroom…would be a lovely gift from me to me.

Wow! Hard to choose a favorite item from your fabulous store, but I’d love the Classic Double Row Greek Key Hurricane, or one of your luxe totes. Definitely on my wish list!

susan boudon on

Hi Tina, Love your blog, Im kinda new to all of this. I have been laid up at home with a broken arm. So Ive been exploring the internet and found you. Im so glad I found you. I too love blue and white. You have some pictures in your dining room, the four grouping of blue and white pictures. Will they be available in your shop soon. I also love the flowers. But the cable knit warmers look wonderful for this time of year. Thank you!!!!

jenny on

I am loving the lamps you have posted in your online shop! I love the blue and white square shade, bell lamp! I have never tried the products you are giving away! I am hoping I win!!!! PS. Your house is breathtaking!

Claudia A. on

WREATH PEDESTAL has been a favorite of mine, always…but everything is wonderful and just too hard to decide my favorite!

Jayne on

As a very recent convert to diffusers, I would love to win this! Not sure why it took me so long to discover these. I was afraid they might be overpowering, but just the opposite has been the case for me.

I really enjoy everything in your shop – it’s all elegant and if I could I would have at least one of everything – however, I can’t wait for you to list the silk orchids!!!!!!! I used to use only real flowers and plants, but it seemed that no matter how careful I was I would always end up with water damage or sap issues the result of some spider mites. Since I’m a pretty picky type A person, I got tired of what seemed like a no-win situation and prefer silk flowers and plants. I’ve just added a new mirror, console and lamp to my entry and can’t wait to add one of your orchids to finish it off!

Anna on

I love your store and may just splurge on a diffuser. But the gardenia candles are wonderful ! My husband got me one for Christmas and I want one in every room in the house!

Julie on

I love Antica Farmacista products and used to work in a home decor shop that carried their products. Customers always raved about their scents. It’s always a great gift and you can know that your giving a good quality product. What a hard decision, but I would love to win the Peonia diffuser. Thanks so much for offering this.

Tone on Tone - Loi Thai on

Congrats on this wonderful new sponsor! Acqua would be divine in our Maine home. And of course I love all your blue and white offerings 🙂

Wanda on

Carol C Sawyer on

You had me at gardenia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Phyllis on

Tina, You are stronger than I am – I didn’t last on WordPress for a week. But the ‘new’ blog looks beautiful and you clearly have a lot of exciting things happening. Carry on!
All best,

maureen on

The scents ‘smell’ delicious. I can’t wait for your flowers so I can order. I still like the napkin rings and if money was not important I would have to have the crystal dome cloche with plate. My treats would look dazzling!

jenny on

Love the crystal cloches !!! Pure elegance. Love your style !

Karolyn on
