French Themed Linen Guest Towels

Paris Towels

I just love the Paris Hedge design! It is one of my favorites. This year we are offering it on linen guest towels with the french saying, “Eat well, Laugh often, Love much!” across the bottom border.  A sweet reminder for you or someone special. Click here for ordering information.

Our dining room table is very special. It is made from an old plank door from the house where my grandfather was born. My dad drove it all the way from Mississippi to Upstate New York along with a mantel that we installed around our fireplace. I remember playing in “The Old House” when I was little. The house is gone now. I love that there are pieces of that place here and cherished in our home.

There is a key hole in the table often covered by a place mat or a napkin. Whoever finds himself seated at the keyhole is the honored guest for the evening. : )

French Themed Pillows

I just received my final order of pillows for the Flower Show from my seamstress. They are darling! I’m so excited. Birgitta does such a beautiful job sewing. The quality is top notch. I’m thrilled that I get the opportunity to collaborate with another woman in my community and benefit from her talent. Each pillow has an invisible zipper in the bottom seam with a removable insert. Many designs this year have a contrasting fabric backing allowing the pillows to be reversible!

Here is a little sneak preview. Some of these I only have one of, others are multiples. If you have your heart set on one of them and you won’t be attending the show email me and I can do a special order for you.
