I love this time of year......Spring.....out with the old and in with the new. Time to get out in the garden to do some clipping, pruning and weeding in preparation for new life that has already started to appear. Here in Victoria we are at least 3-6 weeks ahead of schedule then normally seen at this time of year due to the milder climate we have had this past winter. I've been doing some Spring cleaning in the store as well. Moving things around to make room for new items as they arrive. I haven't officially started decorating for Easter as yet, hope to do so this week, however I do have a few items out as a teaser for what's to come. So check out some new store pictures below along with a few featured items newly arrived. As I haven't updated my store's website as yet, if you see something you're interested in drop me a line and I will provide more details along with cost.
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!
