Hello Autumn.........

Well summer is now over, not sure where the time has gone. This year our summer weather wasn't all that great but we did have a very warm and sunny August and September so far has been just as lovely. I have a feeling our fall is going to be really nice, giving us a few more months of sunshine before the rain sets in. I love the fall, it is my most favorite time of the year! I love the crispness in the air and the beautiful fall colours mother nature provides.  There are so many colors to choose from ......red, yellow, orange, green, tan and brown.....all inspiring colors for your fall decorating. I always hang a beautiful fall wreath to my front door. It's a great way to welcome the autumn season to your home.

You can easily transition into Halloween by adding a few more decorative items like lanterns, crows and pumpkins to your fall vignette!



What ever your decorating style....I hope you embrace this beautiful time of year!

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!
