Welcome March.....


I have always loved the month of March....when our weather starts to get warmer, the days are noticeably longer and the first hints of spring are starting to show in my garden. This is also the month when the majority of new spring products for the store start arriving. I thought I would give you a glimpse of some of the new items that have recently arrived -

Metal birdcages-all sizes

Faux cream hydrangeas-they look so real

Fleur de Lis serving platters, cloches and paper weights

New cushions-this is one of my favorite quotes

Metal document chest-handy for storing all types of things 

Wire cloche with plant pot and base

New tea towels- "Let Them Eat Cake" and french ticking 

Cloches in various sizes

Medium size cloche on vintage mirrored tray

Faux garden floral swags and vintage blus glass canning jars 

Metal cream bistro set 

Metal garden bench (matches the bistro table and chairs)

New spring window display


Happy Spring! 


    

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!
