Good morning…OK this is what, I kid you not, that we woke up to this morning!! Shocker, it wasn’t even in the forecast and it’s still snowing! Enough to look pretty but also enough to remind me of how tired I am of winter and how we are all longing to see and smell fresh cut green grass and the sweet scent of freshly blooming flowers!!


Today I have set up a poll with regard to my online shop. If you have ever visited my online shop, hope you will participate! It is totally 100% anonymous so your honest opinions are most appreciated in helping me grow and offer what people are looking for. I am considering a shop site overhaul, a “new look” while staying true to my aesthetic. I also am expanding with a number of things and? its important to hear from you.



Also a reminder, only 3 more days to enter the Dining Room Love contest!! One lucky winner is going to receive a stunning ginger jar to grace her home. Don’t miss out!!!


  • Accepting entries as of today through April 2nd
  • Maximum 2 pictures per entrant
  • Must be your pictures (not to be taken from magazine or online)
  • In subject line of email you must put Dining Room Love (I get a lot of email and without this distinction it could get lost)
  • ?I am capping this contest off with 60 pictures (so get them in so yours will be part of the 60)!

I look forward to getting them up until April 2nd, then the contest will start on April 3rd

Email me your pictures to


So thank you for taking the time to go through the 14 questions, shouldn’t take more than a minute or two. For your time, I am offering a giveaway…..a beautiful Antica Farmacista diffuser!


Just leave a comment telling me that you have participated in the poll and you will be in the running. I will announce a winner on Wednesday. Ready to get started? Here we go……


Many thanks as always for stopping in! Wishing you a wonderful day and a great productive start to your week….thanks in advance for taking to participate:) Until next time……

Nancy potter on

I most enjoy pictures of your wonderful home. Your tole is amazing. I usually don’t care for the silver. I kind of like old silver. I think a line of candle tapers would be lovely. I usually find accessories closer to home. I love your bell jars as do most. I have to say your blog is my favorite Right up there with Mary carol garrity. Maybe more home furnishings and some green. I don’t use blue in my decor. I know you are aghast with that news. Sorry

Linda G on

Finished the poll and happy to provide my feedback. Enjoy most the photo’s of your home and landscape.

Caroline on

Tina huge fan of your blog AND shop. I have enjoyed and been really happy with everything I have bought from you, ginger jars, silver, monogram linens and bell jars! I think the belljars are not just well priced but are actually a bargain, at a nearby store yours that sell for 485 are there for 900! I have told many about your beljars in particular.
Love your selection and hope you continue to grow, I live in CT. and let me tell you there are no stores nearby that carry nearly the selection (and pricing) that yours does…so keep up the good work.

Lynn on

I have not purchased anything…yet! Love your blog and your shop! I did the survey.

Leona on

Although I am not a blogger , I landed on your blog in search of blue and white porcelain. I am in LOVE , no addicted , with your blog and shop and have spent most of my days (recuperating from pneumonia ) catching up on all past blogs and pictures. WOW your home is a Cinderella dream home. I love the pieces you have in your shop and have taken the poll.
Thank you for letting me into your “World of Beautiful”

Bonnie S on

Bought my most favorite handbag from you and two small ginger jars, love both They both shipped fast and your communication was excellent, LOVE the personal touch and that’s whats missing today form most businesses, offering a personal touch makes a customer feel special.

Would love to see more personal accessories, you have great taste and I really like all you offer. Did the poll.

My dear Tina,
Your shop is pure heaven, you had me at hello and if I could, I’d need to buy a container to ship all the things I love :))

kathy re on

Mary Frederick on

Dear Tina,
I love your store and was happy to complete the survey. You have so many beautiful things. I think we should embrace change and if you feel a need to freshen things up, go for it! You have incredible taste and it will be amazing.

Linda H. on

Took the poll! Love your site! Thanks!

Kelly on

Hi Tina, completed the poll. Hope this means you will be ever expanding the inventory of items in your shop. Love having it as a great resource!

Karen on

Adore your shop and it was discovered through a friend aka my personal shopper. She found a perfect pair of ginger jars for me and since then I have bought belljars, linens and a great handbag from you. Your belljars are super well priced. And I think your personal touch makes the experience much more enhanced.

I also was really happy with how fast everything came. I am impressed by what you are are doing and have done. I wish you well and hope it grows and grows, think you are onto something as everything today is way too modern for my taste so seeing elegant, traditional items at a good price is a big draw. Bet of luck, hope to win. Loved the poll…good questions!

Sharon Ellis on

Finished the poll. Really looking forward to what you are thinking for your new on-line store. LOVE your products…..

Melissa Marsden on

Great web site! My survey is completed.

sherri on

Tina, I participated in the poll. I admire you for always wanting feedback and improvement. The shop is wonderful. I seemed to have some difficulty registering my resonse to the question about what I like most: It is the very good personal service.
Good luck, and I have always been a happy shopper with you.

sherri on

..Oh and call me crazy ( everyone will!) but I am so darn jealous of your snow!!! PLEASE send it my way.

Hi Tina… answered all the questions except #11. Tried to answer – but for some reason it didn’t work. . Then again, I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. Have a great week!

Bonnie W. on

Hi Tina….happy to help with your poll and wish you the very best with your shop. Haven’t purchased anything yet, but I sure have my eye on some porcelain and those beautiful florals.

Sure hope you get to enjoy some warm weather soon.

Hi Tina,

I enjoy visiting your blog and store to see how you decorate with the items you sell. Great source of inspiration! Since I’m trying to downsize I’m restraining my purchases but its always fun to visualize. Thanks for sharing your time and talent.

Tone on Tone Loi Thai on

Good luck, Tina. I just finished the survey. Hope it helps. I don’t mind sharing this publicly: what I love most is how you display and show your items in your own home. It is really helpful to merchandise the items in situ. It’s very inspiring to see, for example, how you use the blue and white porcelain pieces in your rooms…..what kinds of flower arrangements you style them with. xo Loi

Kim Burgett on

Just completed the poll…i have purchased several items in the past and continue to love them! thanks for providing unique, hard to find items.

Ann on

Tina the picture of the snow I hate to say it is so pretty but I can imagine you are tired of it! We were skiing in Switzerland until last week and came home to almost 80 degrees and believe it or not after a few days I craved the cold and snow!
I am a devoted follower of your blog and your shop and own several “enchanting items”. I think your belljar selection and prices are the best I have seen and I like how you are infusing your elegant personal style into the home furnishings, think there is potential for a lot of growth there! I enjoyed the poll and would love to win the diffuser.

Marsha Cannon on

Finished the poll! Sorry that you woke up to more snow. I wish I could send a little Mississippi sunshine your way!

Lorelei Pollack on

Good Morning, West Coast time! Found your website quite by accident and thrilled that I discovered it. I look forward to your daily emails and what you have to say or offer. Everything is truly elegant and I am never disappointed. However, I do have difficulty entering in your giveaways. I go to the website that you suggest and come back to your site as directed but I am unable to find a place where I can enter your contests/giveaways. I have a MAC. Sometimes this can present a problem. I am not sure it that is the case here. Please give me instructions as to where I should go on your website to enter. Thanks every so much and keep up the Elegance. Fondly, Lorelei

Suzanne Sloan on

I participated in the poll.

Terry on

Tina I have loved your style since i discovered you and happily continue to fill my home with many of your wares. Not only are your prices more than fair, you are so quick to help and offer solutions! Almost unheard of today. I love your personal approach and appreciate the “extra effort”. I think your belljars are exquisite and incredibly priced. Ditto all the blue and white.
I would love to see even more handbags and “fun stuff”, more pillows and maybe expand the beautiful florals. You seem to have a wonderful touch and excellent taste, that will always keep people coming back!

Sharon Lawrence on

Hi Tina–I have always enjoyed reading your posts and have purchased items from your store. I have been very pleased with the quality of the items and your customer service was terrific especially when one of my treasures was damaged in the shipping. I would highly recommend your store to any friend and appreciate the photos showing how you and others use the items in their own homes–it is inspiring. One issue with the survey–I wasn’t able to answer the question regarding the rankings. I am so sorry but it might be a problem because I use a MAC. Happy Monday–Sharon

Karen Meredith on

Finished the survey. Love your shop! Great idea to get feedback!

Victoria on

I definitely see a big future for you and your shop. First you have great taste and style, you have a very hands on approach which for me personally is a big plus. I like the extra mile and value that in a shopping experience.
Your selection is just my taste in a world of very modern/more transitional things. I appreciate that you do not waver and stay true to what you love. I think you will gain a big following for that alone.
I bought one bell jar for my powder room and it is so beautiful, everyone comments on it. I know its the first of many purchases to come now that we are settling into our new home.
I would love to see even more lighting, great plates and glassware and definitely more things along the lines of personal accessories, as I really like your style. I did the poll also, look forward to seeing what the results reveal.

Hi Tina!
I completed the poll! It’s a sign of a good retailer to get to know her patronage, particularly when one cannot meet face to face. I’ll be honest. I have yet to purchase from your shop. I have missed a few opportunities as some items have sold. You never disappoint with your beautiful offerings. Your effort to bring affordable elegance to places where it is “unfound” is so very much appreciated by me.
