Vintage Inspired Seasonal Decorations

I love fall.....the crisp air and beautiful fall colors that nature has to offer. I always look forward to decorating at this time of the year. My sister got me hooked on Vintage Inspired Folk Art decorations. Especially the ones made from paper mache with just a touch of fine glass glitter. Artists such as Dee Foust, Wendy Addison and Teena Flanner are among my favorites. Decorating for Halloween has never been more fun! To add a touch of whimsy to your home this Halloween look for these wonderful decorations in store beginning of October. I know you too will become a fan when you see these wonderful collectible original works of art!

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!
