Hi and happy Sunday everyone. By the time you read this, I will be in Virginia to be with my family. Today is a significant day, as it’s the one year anniversary of my mom’s passing. A year later, it still feels incredibly surreal. I miss her every hour and there is not a day that goes by, that I don’t think of her multiple times. It is a void which is impossible to fill. She was always my “go to” person for literally everything.

It certainly leaves a huge hole in your heart. Anyone who has lost a mother knows what I mean. So today we will be together to honor the  incredible person, mother, wife, and best friend that she was. I do my best every day to honor by her aspiring to be the kind of person she was and follow her lead (huge shoes to fill but I try).

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend. Hard to believe we are in November!! I also cannot believe that the holidays are creeping up on us and fast. Busy weekend here, dinner with friends, a Halloween party then leave for Virginia.

We will  celebrate my beautiful mom with just our immediate family. I am so happy I have/had my blog to honor her many times throughout the years, an everlasting tribute to what a truly incredible mother, friend and wife she was. OK, onward to my post this weekend….



1 MY BEAUTIFUL MOM. Just a few of my favorite pictures of my incredible mother who is missed every hour. I know she is watching down on me and I have felt her presence here and there, I truly believe she is around me. Love you mom and cannot believe you have been gone for a year. You are missed more than words could ever convey. I am so grateful for the life you gave me, for the immeasurable lessons you taught me in life, but mostly for you to have exemplified how a quality person and true lady lives their life. A one and only, as anyone who know you, will attest!

3 INSTAGRAMS OF INTEREST Such pretty fall inspired instagrams with a few beautiful interiors sprinkled in……

4 SOME AMAZING PRESS!! It is always such a thrill to be featured in many of my favorite magazines and this month was a real bonanza of press!! House Beautiful, Traditional Home, Southern Lady, and  Better Homes and Gardens. Doesn’t get better than that!!



And in Flower magazine, love this feature with our fabulous Blue tulips as part of our collaboration with Carolyn Roehm, this is an especially FANTASTIC ISSUE!


5 HIGHLIGHTED HAIR THAT NEEDS A LITTLE LIFT? I have to say I really love this product, its a brush on temporary dash of color which is fantastic if you are between highlights and need a little “brightening”. I get my hair highlighted 2 or 3 times a year so this is a godsend to use in the meanwhile. Easy to use and comes in several colors. Click here to see more

6 COMING SOON  If you read my blog, you know I love anything with lattice. Always been a huge fan so look for any opportunity to incorporate it into our designs.Very excited over this lattice mirror we will be introducing in 2 colors to start! Doesn’t look like much now as this is the mirror with just a  base coat,  we will offer it in white and one other color.

In addition to the white, would love your take as to the second color we should offer?


And these magnificent lattice framed prints..hope to have in time for Christmas! Not high res pictures but you certainly get the idea!


And this is a the soft blue series, not quite finished but gives you the idea…..

7 SUNDAY’S SURVEY So something potentially exciting is in the works. Over the years,  many have asked us about the possibility of renting our products. In recent months, I have been in talks with two people who want to start up a rental business featuring many/most of our products.

We are quite excited at the prospect and think this could offer a very unique experience since most of our products are ours exclusively and certainly would make for some beautiful events, parties, tables, etc….We have and are continuing to add so many pieces of dinnerware, chargers, tabletop items, wicker and of course all of our porcelain!

As this starts to come together, I will be sure to share  with you the progress. Would love your opinion on this subject.









And that’s a wrap. Thanks for stopping in. Wishing everyone a fabulous Sunday. Find the beauty and joy where-ever you can! It’s out there for the taking. Until next time….

Praying for you today. I’m sure your Mom was very proud of you, and that you gave her as much love and joy, as she gave you. ❤️🙏🏻

Memories of the good kind are a blessing, indeed. I smile everytime I “see/read” “Enchanted Home” in one of my many magazines. franki

Thinking of you and your Family today. Being together with loved ones sharing memories of your Mother is a wonderful way to honor her.

I completely understand what your going through, I lost my mom in 2018. I miss her everyday. Your mom will be with you in spirit everyday❤. I love the new lattice frames. The light blue is beautiful. Happy Fall🍁🍁🎃🎃

Thank you for the beautiful sentiments about your beloved mom. November 15 will be the one year anniversary of my mother’s passing. Like you I think of and miss her every day. I feel her presence always.

Congratulations on the press coverage of your business. Thanks for the highlights cover powder I ordered some.
Your mother is smiling with pride on you!

Tina, how nice that you will be together with family on the one-year anniversary of your precious Mom’s passing. You were truly blessed to have such a wonderful Mom — and dear Dad, too! May you continue to focus on all your precious memories as they just become more precious as the days go by. Bless you, Tina!

Your Mother was so Beautiful – My Prayers are with you and your entire Family as you go thru this first anniversary holiday season🙏🏻❤️🌹🙏🏻

It doesn’t seem as though it’s been a year since your mom’s passing. It’s lovely that you will spend time with family honoring her memory.
I’m a bit overwhelmed with the holidays so close. I’m a planner and hoping I can get a lot done in the next 7 weeks. I love Virginia; safe travels and may you have peace, and comfort with your loved ones. Best, FL

Dearest Tina
I am thinking of you and your family so very much, whilst you are together for these days to remember your mother’s passing one year ago. I know you miss her dearly and she was so very proud of you. She was a beautiful lady and the epitome of grace, style, kindness and wisdom. Your tribute brings tears to my eyes, I send you my fondest love as always.
This time of year will always be yours and reminds me of the words of John Donne, for your beautiful Mom today

‘No Spring nor summer beauty hath such grace. As I have seen in one autumnal face’

With my love to you

Oh I will have to see if any of those Magazines have made it to Australia. It often take months. I was super excited when I just saw I can buy some of your products from Peters of Kensington in Australia ! So surprised and excited I nearly fell off my chair .

Thank you. Domo arigato. Gracias. Danke. Received my beautiful red pagoda tree today, way ahead of expected time. In perfect condition, beautifully packed.

I received a note today from you that someone cancelled my subscription.!! I called and your office said I was still on your list. I did not get an email from you today and I always get one each day.
