Hi there, TGIF! Nice to see the sun shining brightly, and though we still have lots of snow on the ground, I know spring has to rear its pretty head sooner than later. As I like to do I share my weeks highlights with pictures taken with my iPhone. Amazing how they tell a story all on their own (yet this is by far the pretty and positive version). Real life happens too but does not make the prettiest pictures:) How I wish I had one when my kids were young, today’s young parents don’t realize what a gift just that it, being able to chronicle and share every moment of their kids and the ability to instantly share with relatives and loved ones across the miles! When you stop to think about it, what an incredible advance in technology phones are in how we communicate and share. For me, it’s a lifesaver…..as it helps me “stay on track” and keeps my thoughts organized, I take pictures of everything from receipts to daily reminders of things I might otherwise forget:) Anyway here is a look into this last weeks happenings…. ___________________________________________ I must say my giftwrap line was one of my prouder moments in this whole Enchanted Home journey, when I became frustrated at not being able to go out and find really gorgeous papers, I created it and never looked back….already working on our holiday collection! And our newest chinoiserie prints are in production now:) Click here to see the every day giftwrap I love this reversible lemon trellis paper because it’s as pretty wrapping it as unwrapping it! Also got our ginger jar and Staffordshire dog toppers back in stock Friday (sold as box of 6 click here to see) Added some spring cheer to my hallway chest, love the white effect, makes me feel like spring cannot be far away (these are the large Staffordshire dogs) How incredible are these fabulous botanical we just custom framed with their beautiful inset “filet” detailing going to my lucky clients dining room (wouldn’t mind keeping these for myself) New arrivals get me so excited!! Really in love with the latest pattern/samples of our newest melamine, cannot wait till it comes in and I can set a pretty table, might have to call for a little party:) Talk about a slice of “real life’ this is my breakfast room table which is really more like a “lab” for playing with all my favorite new products:) My line of incredibly realistic orchids is growing (click here to see all our custom florals), love this one in my kitchen with my all time favorite candle (this is the large urn which we have taken off site as we only have one left) but the incredible scent is back in stock in our beautiful fishbowl and small cylinder style (click here) Though I am over winter, we go the most beautiful snowfall, the kind that holds onto every single leaf and branch. It was the beautiful THE DAY OF. Now we are stuck with icy/dirty snow frozen in place, not that attractive a week later Added a little springy cheer to my dining room and set the table for a small dinner we had mid week for out of town guest Spring colored flowers!! Makes me so excited for the season that brings us the most gorgeous blooms! Redid my mantle and loving this…this one is a keeper! Features my bunnies, all my porcelains, including a pair of the Ralph vases in medium and my favorite curly cherry blossoms __________________________________________ And there you have the highlights from the last week or so.
