Vintage by Nina..."a winters tale"

Coming soon to French Vanilla is "A Winter's Tale" Nina Hartmann's latest book. 

This is a truly beautiful book. Together with her husband, photographer Tore Sundgren, Nina has created a magical Christmas and winter book.  Readers are invited into a world of vintage and antiques ~ a world of cosy rooms, sparkling candles, Swedish tile stoves, a white winter with snowflakes, cherubs and angels, charming toys, tinsel and glitter, stunning flea market finds alongside special French and Scandinavian pieces in unique settings.  The major part of 'A Winter's Tale' is set in Nina and Tore's own inspiring home, together with five other beautiful homes.

This book would make a lovely Christmas gift. As limited copies are available you can pre-order your copy through my website at

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!
