Tis the Season .......

It's always fun for me decorating at this time of year. Here are a few photos of the store all decked out for Xmas. The color scheme this year is mainly white, silver and gold. Although I have done a small section of the store and a table setting in the traditional red and green but with a twist. I used lime green this year along with the darker green which I love.

Hi Sheila,

Just a note to say I love your blog's new look (and of course seeing Chantilly's presence :). Best of luck with your shop renos...can't wait to see the pics once completed!

Wishing you much continued success in 2009!

Thanks Leslie! Yes, your beautiful "Chantilly" sign was displayed in my store window at Christmas and of course sold! Will have to place another order once I finish with my reno's. Hope things are well with you? How's that thought about starting your own blog coming along? Ü


Hello Bonjour....

Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
