So Much To Share!

Well Christmas sort of came and went around here and while it was nice, I for one am aready for the new year! I have so many wonderful things going on and I can't wait to share so I will just dive right in.

I want to start by thanking Marie of Savon Marie for the most wonderful package I received in the mail the other day. I was so fortunate to win her blog contest to name her newest soap, "Sweet Embrace."

Now I wass hoping to get some pictures taken of all the amazing goodies she sent but my children (who love her soap just as much as I do) grabbed the goodies and literally ran to the bathroom to "play" with everything. Here are a few of her photos of some of the lovely things I received. Thank you so much Marie for a wonderful after Christmas present.
If you haven't tried her products I suggest you hop on over and see all the wonderful things she has to offer.

My favorite scents are the almond, vanilla and strawberries and cream. Yum!

Next up I wanted to share a little update on our trip to the Dallas Gift Market! We are wrapping up a few details and packing up to head out in a few weeks! Here is a look at just a few of the new lines we have developed for Spring 2010.

We are working to get all of the collections up on our site shortly (you can view them here) and will begin accepting pre-orders for both retail as well as wholesale.

It has been a long journey but we are learning so much and are very excited with the new items we have to offer.

Finally, I wanted to share some of the new things we just listed. We are so excited for Valentine's Day to arrive as it is one of our favorite holidays. We have lots of pretty paper creations including pixies (pictured in the beginning of the post), tags, Valentines. . and these adorable little tins filled with mini cards. We will be continuing to list new items throughout the week and be sure to sign up for our newsletter as well. We will be announcing our reopening early next week with special treats for our subscribers only! Thanks for visiting and we hope you and yours have a truly wonderful and safe New Year!

A Little "Junk" Mail

Yesterday I received some "junk" mail. . but not the kind we all usually get. This was was a wonderful Christmas surprise from two of truly the nicest people I have had the pleasure of working with, Steve and Polly of The French Cupboard.

As you may know I am a member of The French Cupboard along with so many other amazing boutiques. Stop by and get lost there as I often do. The photography alone is worth the visit!

Now back to my treats. Inside this burlap stitched bag was a beautiful stitched candy cane covered in lace and seam binding, some red and white twine and several pretty paper goodies. Thank you Polly and Steve for making my Christmas a little brighter. It was such a lovely surprise and really made my day.

Blessings to you all!
