A Giveaway...$100 Gift Certificate and a book called "Hers"

$100 Gift Certificate

I wanted to do something to say "thank you" to all of my readers, customers, facebook fans (well over 1000 now :) So I thought a giveaway was appropriate.  I am giving away one $100 Gift Certificate to my shop.   I choose or create the products I sell to assist YOU in creating your vision for your event or to decorate that special space in your home.

I thought this book by Jacqueline deMontravel was an appropriate companion to my gift certificate.
I'm a huge fan of hers and just love the ideas in her newest book.

"Whether you are happily single or a mother of four, having a room that pleases you is a common fantasy. After all, what woman doesn’t want a modern, romantic, feminine, grown-up space that she can call her own—where she can listen to opera (or eighties music) and engross herself in the pages of Jane Austen (or the latest celebrity gossip)?
Hers offers hundreds of stylish ways for creating your own private retreat, even when your bedroom doubles as your living room or when delicate furnishings don’t seem compatible with kid-friendly living. With some thoughtful rethinking of your home’s layout and some imagination, you can dedicate part of a shared space to your own interests, and Jacqueline deMontravel will show you how. 
These interiors celebrate the beauty and comfort of feminine design with color, furniture shapes, and attractive accessories."

Spring weather + new designs + pink tulips = photo shoot

It felt and looked like spring today at my house.

Playing with my new camera (I do have a bit of learning to do)...
I just had to share these gorgeous pink tulips.

It's been such a mild winter on Long Island - we are going to be in the high 50's the next couple of days!

Shop news...

These gorgeous new ribbons came in today.
Country French Floral on Blue Linen

I'm like a kid ripping the boxes open!

Vintage French Floral Linen

You see I have a ribbon addiction, always have. That is why I had to start selling my inventory.

French Script in Grey on Linen

I couldn't possibly use all of the ribbons I have bought over the years.  But I have found that many of you (all over the world) love ribbon too and the selection in your local craft stores are just not that great.

So, I get to buy more ribbon!

Wishing you a Sweet Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!!
My quick version of the Sweet Heart Cupcakes

Don't you love their packaging?
