I completed the survey and I absolutely cannot pick just one thing from the shop! But if I have to list some favorites, it would be the antique white foo dogs, the chunky ginger jars with lids, the silver pierced and etched planters, the wine holder planters, and the fiberstone planters. The monogrammed linens are incredible too! Thank you!

Hi Tina,
I completed the survey! I love anything monogrammed on your shop site,,,among many other things too. I do have a book recommendation “The Art of Racing in the Rain” by Garth Stein. It’s a story written from a dog’s point of view. I can tell from your posts that you have a dog that is well loved and I think you may enjoy this read when you are snuggled in on a quite weekend. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway!

Millie on

Anonymous on

I completed the survey. I am looking forward to sharing your journey as you build your new home. The inspiration pictures are wonderful. If you are looking for a good book read The Residence. It is about the staff that works for the first family in the White House. The commitment they show is great as are the stories of past first families.

That Palmetto Bluff location is just fabulous and I loved the video. I’m relaxing by the lake in Virginia, in the house, of course!! The water is cold, I assume, but the view is lovely.

Angela Culbertson on

Thank you for the opportunity to complete the survey. You have a fabulous collection of Blue and White porcelains..I am hooked. Channeling my inner Southern Belle(being from Virginia)…I love anything with a monogram. During the past few weeks we are binge watching HOMELAND and finished Grace and Frankie. Finished reading the Paris Wife.

Sally on

I have completed the survey and want to tell you that I am dying for one of the handpainted Chinoiserie pillows! Also, some monogramed linen guest towels. So beautiful!

Christine on

Choosing a favorite is not possible …but the silver containers and trays are very impressive as are all the ginger jars . I really could go on and on …
Cherry Blossom season will soon be here in Md/DC area . I’ve had my sites on that particular ginger jar for some time ! I’ve never seen one like the one you have in your shop.
Our visits to Washington have been numerous over the years, but trips during “cherry blossom” season make it seem quite a wonderland.

Leah B on

Many favorites however the monogram mania and European kitchen are the tops.

Sandy w on

Well, my favorites in your shop would have to be the blue and white porcelains, but I also love the wood kitchen trays and dough bowls. The little blue foo dogs look so cute, so may have to find a spot for those. We have a low key weekend planned taking care of our 3 year old granddaughter tonight. We saw “The Revenent” last night. The cinematography and acting were amazing, although very violent at times. Couldn’t watch parts. Hope Leonardo finally wins his Oscar.

Nancy on

Can’t wait to see what is next! Absolutely adore the silver and monogramed napkins.

Deborah on

Tina, I completed your survey and hope my input is helpful. One thing I would like to mention is that I enjoy your recipes so keep them coming please. I like the porcelains,vases and jars in particular. Here in Virginia we are still dealing with snow as well, Sunday is suppose to be 60 so here’s hoping it goes away! I just saw a flock of robins so spring can’t be THAT far away can it?!

Nancy on

Can’t wait to see what is next! Linens are a passion and monogramed napkins are just gorgeous.

Lin on

Love your tole and porcelain lamps! And also waiting to hear all about your Palmetto project step by step!

kathleen on

Just finished your survey and it’s hard to choose a favorite but I do love all of your Tole products, which you don’t often see in stores. I am still waiting to receive an order I was billed for on Jan. 5th of this year. I will forward the voice to you and I hope you’ll let me know what happened. I would love to win the Foo dogs ! Best, Kathy

I, too, have completed your survey and I hope that my enthusiastic comments have helped you. Yur shop has so many beautiful and well priced things that it is hard to pick but I think the blue and white ginger jars are my favorite I would love to see more garden stools for this coming summer at my house in Duxbury MA. Thanks, also, for your recipes. I think you missed your calling and should be giving us recipes as often as possible also.

Sherry Sivils on

Beautiful day in North Carolina! I finished the survey, and hope you get great and usable feedback. My faves are definitely your porcelains and the beautiful pictures of your home. I also enjoy your recommendations for design books. I have purchased several πŸ™‚

Peggy EkEna on

I will always love anything blue and white! I want to get some of your beautiful silver pieces, especially a small or mid-size planter for an orchid. I also love your Foo Dogs!

Friday evening, a girlfriend and I went to Sarasota to see a Dancing With The Stars performance! It was wonderful and a great evening to share with a girlfriend! Our husbands were together and did something else in Naples, Florida.

Next week, my husband and I are attending a wedding in Savannah, Georgia. That should be fun; the son of our very dear friend is getting married. We don’t get to see our friends too often, but we’re always there for each other. Two years ago, our son lost his home to an EF- 4 tornado in Washington, Illinois and our friend was very generous to our son and his young family. True friends are difficult to find in today’s mobile society.

I didn’t mean to go into all that, but as you can imagine, the tornado and its effects will always remind me of how precious life really is!

Carol on

I finished the survey, and love my blue & white porcelains I recently purchased!

Today is laundry day, I know, not exciting. However, I’m also planning a get away trip to Switzerland and Austria in early April with my husband and 15 year old daughter, (last child of four) who will turn 16 on the day we arrive in Geneva, so I’m planning a spa day for her, as well. After I filled out your survey, I headed to your shop and still love most the colored porcelains. Now back to the laundry…. πŸ™‚

The survey was very easy to use and I appreciate your efforts to find out what your readers like. I love the blue and white porcelains, foo dogs and silver. Am looking at my mini blue and white pagodas in my house as I write this. Just love them! This weekend (in Virginia) the snow is almost gone and we’re going to have great weather – so I hope to get outside and enjoy it. Best to you and Happy Weekend, Tina!

Off to the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale which is a cultural phenomenon here in the Bay Area!

Aimee on

I have the “fabulous oval planter” from your shop. It’s so gorgeous!I think the porcelains section of your shop is my favorite.

Terri Michael on

LOVE the Annabelle Ingalls handbags. GREAT deal and beautiful bags (mine is complimented all the time!)

Deanna on

I love your blue and white porcelain bowls. I want a fruit bowl and have been trying to figure out which bowl I’m going to buy. The first blue and white bowls listed are so gorgeous. I love just going through your shop and dreaming about what I would like to buy.

kathy bunge on

I completed the survey. I have purchased porcelains & your beautiful faux cherry blossoms in the past so those categories are my favorites!

Mary on

I just finished the survey. Regarding your shop, I just swoon over the foo dogs!

We watched two movies recently about Charles Dickens: The Invisible Woman and Mr. Pip. Although totally different, each was beautifully done and enlightening. If you haven’t seen these, I highly recommend them. Great for discussion afterwards.

Lori on

Took your survey. Missing the garden this time of year so enjoyed looking at the pedestal with lovely urn atop. Yesterday watched an American bald eagle trying to steal a fish from some seagulls all morning. As he would fly off to circle again, I was struck by the strength and beauty of his soaring circles. I am thankful to be an American and live on a little river in the midwest.
Even in the winter, there are visual delights all around. One just has to sit still long enough to see them.
May you enjoy your winter and rest in it a bit. Even nature needs a time of renewal.

Sofia on

I love the whole blue & white range. My favorite product is the cherry blossom hexagon jar, which is at this moment sold out. Wanted to buy this jar but the shipping costs were far too high. I live in Europe, in the Austrian Alps and there is a snowstorm approaching. Every day I visit Tina?s shop and blog and keep dreaming about those jars because for us Europeans it is very difficult to find what Tina has in her shop. I?m a great fan of American interior style with an European twist ;)) Now I?m going to open a bottle of Italian Prosecco and enjoy this windy Saturday evening, always with blue&white jars on my mind πŸ™‚
Hugs from a European big fan, Sofia.

Jackie on

Took the survey and found it hard to just list 2 favorite items from your shop. If I could, I would redo all my lighting with your tole….just gorgeous!

maggie R on

Hi Tina! I just finished your survey.I still think one of my favorite items is the Gardenia Candle that I purchased from you awhile ago. The scent is beautiful and my guests always comment about how lovely my home smells when they come over.
I’m trying to relax and decompress after traveling several hours each way this week for medical appointments for my husband to a medical center in another state. Alway very stressful, but come home feeling very blessed for continued good news. Your site is one of my happy places.

Sofia on

Sofia also took part in the survey, comment number 127. Sorry forgot to mention πŸ˜‰

Emily on

Hi Tina, I took your survey. I wanted to share the positive experiences I have with TEH when I place orders. I’ve enjoyed my blue and white, it is just gorgeous! I love the cow and lamb pillows.
Happy weekend??..

Liz on

Completed the survey. I love the blue and white porcelains and the silver or any of the silver serving pieces. We are enjoying the 75 degree sunny weather we are having today in DFW. Off to the Ft. Worth Fat Stock Show & Rodeo later this evening.
Enjoy your weekend, Tina!

Kaye Timmerman on

I took the survey. I love, love, love, your blue and white mini foo dogs which I own. Also want to get the royal blue ones to go with the blue and white theme I have in my great room.

Michelle on

I love the silver line. The expansion is one I have been happily anticipating since you started carrying a few products early on. I watch this space everyday for your new products. I am home bound this weekend before travel, mostly because I have too much to do, however, I find absolutely no motivation to do it. Perhaps I will find it at the end of a movie or bottom of cookie tin. Am I the last to see ‘Far From the Madding Crowd”? How glorious was that movie…I need someone to put together a list of top romantic period piece movies made in past 5 years, and maybe a top 10 of all time, The kind that husbands roll their eyes at, go to get a ‘snack’ and never return to. Those kind. Sweeping romantic gorgeousness.

Ellen on

Thanks for collecting ideas via the survey. It was fun to contribute a few advertising ideas to boost your visibility here in bar therm Virginia.
I did a little shopping today; found a election-themed Vineyard Vines tie for a friend’s birthday and then watched college basketball. Tonite is dinner out with friends, tomorrow Sunday school, church and a massage — a day of healing body and soul!!
Hugs, Ellen

Christine on

I forgot to mention the spectacular book I read . “The Tenor” by Peter Danish is Historical Fiction at its best . I highly recommend this beautifully written novel!

Suzanne grable on

Love the Enchanted Home and look forward receiving it. This weekend is totally for myHunter, a GSP, short for German Shorthaired Pointer. He was a forced adoption by my youngest son but I love him and have spoiled him. Due to the weather here in Ky. it has been several weeks since he was able to go to the dog park and he lives for that. This breed thinks about “the run,” and when he knows he is on his way to the park he is beside himself. The sun is finally out and the snow is almost gone. I love going to the park with him because he is adorable to me. He pays no attention to other dogs just runs and runs for hours for however it takes to catch him after I get tired of walking. Good for both of us and of course everyone always tells me how handsome he is and he does have good form. My baby Hunter

Lynn on

I completed the servey! I love reading your blog, and looking at the photo’s of your beautiful home. It gives me a little escape from reality! My mother was just diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has recently moved in with us. She is very weak right now and doesn’t have much of an appetite, but we are working on that! She likes to have me read your blog to her and show her the pictures of your gorgeous home! Oh! Almost forgot! My favorite item in your shop is, hands down, the white monogrammed dinner napkins with the blue scalloped edge! Monogrammed in Blue Willow blue, of course!

Teresa on

Just completed your survey. I love reading about your fabulous home, how you entertain and I CANNOT WAIT to hear all about your new home in Palmetto Bluff! I always love your handbags, cutting boards (bought one for my daughter and she loved it) and just seeing all your pretties.

Laurie on

I participated in the survey. I love, love, love your porcelains and the silver. Your pierced trays are to die for!

Molly on

Thank you for asking your readers to fill out a survey. It means you value our opinions and that is commendable. I have always been intrigued with the candles from the Ritz Carlton. One of these days I am going to buy one. I have several of your porcelain items and love them. Would like to buy a black chinoiserie umbrella stand when they are back in stock.

Mary Alvarez on

I’m in love with the chinoiserie hand painted pillows, and all the blue and white porcelains, oh and lets not forget the foo dogs, and the lamps, lets not forget the lamps! You see I can’t just pick one! One of these days….she says dreamy like. And as for my week end…I have 3 chalk painting projects that need my attention…sigh!

Beth h on

Your antique dough bowls are wonderful! I also love the Annabel Ingalls bags! Congratulations on building in Palmetto Bluff-great choice of regions! Just returned from the NC coast myself – it was a beautiful week!!!

I completed the survey. Thank you for asking our opinions, hope it helps. Saw a great Netflix the other night, Cairo Time, with Patricia Clarkson. The cinematography was so beautiful.

Jill Walsh on

I enjoyed participating in the survey, that was fun!
I LOVE the blue and white ginger jar…..who wouldn’t?!

Today we are saying good bye to a dear friend this afternoon who worked tirelessly over 30 years making Maui a better place by his passion to offer affordable housing. He now is living forever with his creator in a place much much much better than Maui!!

Maria Davidson on

Drooling over the lighting. Would love to change out my kitchen lighting for a pair of your pendants. And they are all beautiful.

Ann on

Everything is beautiful on your site but love the blue and white large porcelain ginger jar lamp. This weekend I have been target practicing with my hand gun in preparation for a concealed weapons class. We have spring weather today with 64 degree temperatures so the snow last week is forgotten!

Mimi on

My favorites are always the Chinese porcelains, the lamps, the antique silver, & monogrammed linens. Oh & your Chinoiserie tolle and monogrammed trays). For some reason I’ve fallen in love with the pair of Staffordshire Lamps (they look like my daughter’s little King Charles Cavalier tri)

Clare Morrison on

I completed the survey. I love my new mini pagodas!


I just completed the survey. I have been pining away dreaming about your hand painted silk pillows. They are just divine! I am saving my pennies up to buy one!


Well, it’s always very difficult to pick one favourite from your shop. I love the AP flat top Ginger Jar, and the Mid sized Pagoda Canton Pot planter is gorgeous. Oh yes, the pretty orange and white ginger jar as well. I love your blog, and often wonder how you get it out every day with something fun, or inspiring to read. Have tried and enjoy your recipes too. My young grandsons live with me and so reading your blog is my little escape from school schedules, laundry, and lunches. I’m looking forward to your Palmetto Bluff adventure. I watched the video and it lookes like paradise, no wonder you bought there!

Shaun on

Appreciated the chance to provide feedback on your on-line shop. I do covet the monogram napkins and hope to get them soon. Spent a wonderful weekend at the United States Naval Academy and watched my son and his classmates select their ships for their first duty as officers in the US Navy after May graduation.

Madeline Hickman on

I just finished your survey and browsed through your shop. My favorites are always the blue and white porcelains and lately the chinoiserie items. (simply gorgeous) My project for this weekend is to un-decorate Christmas (over 50 Christmas trees and accessories.) Christmas is a big deal around here but I am anxious to bring things back to normal and bring out the rest of my beautiful blue and white. I am scheduled for a knee replacement surgery next week so I need to get everything back to normal. I look forward to enjoying your site and SHOP as part of my therapy. Thanks for being in my life!

Janet on

I just spent the day at the LA Market and now know for sure your boxwood prices are great!

Regina on

I did the survey and in the shop I love a lot, but would like someday buy the rose canton garden seat item!

Amy on

I completed the survey! Even though it is currently out of stock, my favorite item is the BLACK CHINOISERIE UMBRELLA STAND. Can’t wait for that to be re-stocked πŸ™‚ One of my favorite things from the weekend was seeing the movie Brooklyn…what a wonderful film!

Laura on

Hi Tina!
I completed your survey and I hope you can start carrying the items I suggested I wanted to see in your shop.
I love the porcelain planters and ginger jars, the chinoiserie painted pillows, and the gorgeous tole lamps and lanterns that you carry in your shop!
I sure hope that your son picked out The University of Texas to go to. It is a great school.
Your snow pictures are lovely and much appreciated since we do not get cold weather in Orange County, CA. I always look forward to your blog.
Thank you for sharing your decorating talents, ideas, and beautiful products with us.

I just finished the survey and thank you for that opportunity. Just received my first purchase….the fabulous pair of porcelain ginger jars. Love them!! I have my sights on a large blue and white porcelain bowl and to be honest, boxwoods too! If you want a different kind of book, “Wonder”. By RJ Palacio, is a quick read and stays with you! Our book club loved it!

Sherry Holman on

I completed your survey and love your shop. Right now I have about 5 pillows I want to get for my sunroom. I also love the Vagabond house stuff. Actually I love almost everything. Wish I could afford to just buy everything I love. Thanks for running the promos. I looked at this large silver wine bucket for months and then bought it when you ran the promo a couple of months ago. I love it. Holds 4 bottles of champagne. Thanks Tina for making all of our lives more beautiful.

trudi on

Dear Tina,

My favorite things in your shop are the items from Vagabond Home- to die for!!!!
I went to the Laguna Design Center this week this week and I visited Baker and Ebanista. I thought of you and your beautiful home. Please look at the offerings at Ebanista, There are some fabulous things that would look great in your home.

Toni on

Just filled out the survey. There are so many things I love in your shop….the Large Round Wood Trivet, the Square Antique Brass Lantern or the Bird Twig Condiment Server. It’s raining out so I’m redecorating my guest room in time for a visit from a friend from New York! Loved reading Secret of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner….couldn’t put it down!

I love the Chinoiserie Handpainted Pillows. They are really unlike anything I have seen before. Have not purchased anything yet from your site, but intend to, and did take the survey.

Sharon on

Just finished smocking a dress for my little granddaughter (after 4 sons) & visited the on-line shop for the first time (& took the survey.) I have always decorated with blue and white and collected blue and white porcelain so I was in heaven! Especially loved the tole planters and lamps.

KaRen on

I love your Chinoiserie Pagoda mirror

Victoria on

Just completed the survey, not really sure if I am eligible as live in Australia. Love everything really but in particular the Large ornate fabulous silver tray ! All your silver products look beautiful. It is hard to get silver and you have a beautiful range to choose from. That tray would add elegance to any occasion. Thank you Tina for providing me with a wonderful source of inspiration from across the miles.

CathyR on

Hello Tina!

I’m sure I’m too late to leave a comment for the weekend, as the weekend has passed. However, I will tell you my favorite catagories in your on-line store.

I love the porcelains as they are timeless, the Bell Jar lighting (producing a soft glow), the Chinoiserie pillows (inviting and lovely) and the blue and white table lamps, which I could have (and do) displayed all over our house. I am a blue and white girl too, however, we have a little Tuscan yellow and raspberry thrown in to the mix to keep it interesting and warm.

BOOKS, I read last month: Big Little Lies, Still Alice, The Sound of Gravel and Me Before You
Yesterday on the plane, I read my Southern Cooking (the “50th”year issue)magazine…all I can say, “is there enough hours in the day to work out after you bake and cook each delicious recipe?”

So here goes, you jogged my memory with your post and reminded me of a trip we just returned from a couple of weeks ago.

Likes: We go to almost all movies (all over the world) and enjoyed “Star Wars” in a darling movie theater in Munich, where, after watching the ice skaters skate outside, we entered the theater, checked our coats, and were handed a glass of champagne while being ushered to our seats. One of our favorite cities on our sabbatical, was Kitzbuhel, Austria. We spent Christmas there with our adult children. Christmas was truly magical in this little Austrian village where everyone strolled through the Christmas Market with a cup of mulled wine in their hands while Christmas music was playing and sleigh drawn horses were taking families on rides. Our ski lodge was centered above this magical village so our daily view was the blue sky and the Austrian Alps surrounding us. We had starry nights each evening. The Catholic Church and cemetery stood in the middle of this sweet, famous World Cup village . The soft warm glow of the candles in the windows, the pretty lights, the families covered with warm blankets in the sleighs and the jingle of the horses bells painted a beautiful Christmas evening for us to remember…

Candie on

I love so many things in your online site, but especially the beautiful linens

The survey was hard to complete, as there is much to love on your site. Thanks for sharing your life and life style with us.

Barbara Burns on

I appreciate that you share your, life, home, photos and musings with all your followers. You always make everything, interesting, entertaining and enjoyable. In the shop, I really love your lamps, especially the small Cavalier “Mamma and Puppies” pair.
Thank you!

Excited about your new building adventure.

I entered the survey. I am hopelessly in love with the large dragon fishbowl, and I also am coveting a European cutting board.

Linda P. on

Just completed your survey which
was my pleasure. Absolutely love your custom silk painted pillows; so unique. And your bird planter as well as the multicolored foot bath/planter which are to die for!

Amy Z. on

I just completed the survey. It’s hard to pick a favorite – I love the foo dogs, especially the pale gray pair, and the ginger jar lamp!

barbara M on

Everything you have in your shop is just awesome. I love the monogrammed napkins, the pierced silver trays, the orchids, just all of it! Thank you for caring enough to ask for our opinions and feedback, it shows how genuinely concerned you are about your customers and readers. I look forward to your drawings and comments every day.

Glenda on

I completed the survey and especially like the monogrammed cocktail napkins. I adore monogrammed items, and the napkins you carry are beautiful. I bought the cocktIl napkins for a gift, and the recipient was truly grateful.
The price and quality of the monogrammed napkins are a real value.

Khadija on

It would be easier to list what I don’t like, ha ha. Topiaries, gorgeous faux flowers, porcelain, and European kitchen are my top favorites.

Beth on

I adore your tole selections. I love all things chinoiserie. I took the survey and have my fingers crossed.

Tashat on

Survey is completed. Love all the blue and white porcelain- and the foo dogs and the pillows and, and, and …

Iris on

Your blog is wonderful. The item I found interesting was in your new arrival section: the fruit handled flower pot. I enjoy reading your blog and find it inspiring how you incorporate the items from your shop into your own home.

Tasha on

Survey is completed. Love all the blue and white porcelain- and the foo dogs and the pillows and, and, and … Everything!

Mary Baker on

I am late responding and leaving a comment. But nonetheless, I love your site and have ordered many items. I have been so pleased and proud to own all of the blue/white porcelain I ordered. I think the monogrammed linens are to die for and I am going to order white/linen napkins with a royal blue monogram. So excited about setting my dining room table with them for my next dinner party. Also all of the silver is exquisite and of estate quality. As always, what is not to like on your site. I wake up each morning, pop in my contact lens and read your blog. Thanks for making my weekday and weekend mornings bright and cheerful.
