"Pardon Our French" Workshops and Classes....

Debra of "A French Touch and I "French Vanilla" have teamed up to offer a variety of workshops and classes in our newly acquired space right next door to "French Vanilla". We have just recently finished getting this space ready and love the way it has turned out. I will be posting more details on upcoming classes and workshops including dates soon!







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!
