Change is good!

Here are a few pictures of my beautiful Tea Room as it

Two weeks ago I purchased a new sofa. And everyone knows what that means???? Yep, It's time for a new look.

The new sofa is a warm chocolate brown.

"Really?" you ask.

Yes, really!

I'll keep you updated as change happens.

Let the changes begin!!!

Vintage Fashion Magazines

One of my favorite items to look for are vintage magazines....

Certain time periods instantly catch my eye.

Especially the 1950's.

The Dresses! The Shoes! The Bathing suits!

So fashionable, so ladylike.

Beautiful Flowers Romancing My Soul

I have an "on again, off again" romance with my blog. I take pictures and never post them. I log in and stare at the page. I rehearse what I want to talk about and then never write a word. Of course all this leads to my closing the page and off I go in another direction. Only to return in a few weeks to repeat the frustrating process over and over again.

Truly, I write postings to you everyday.... in my mind that is. Instead of fretting about what to write about, I will just relax and whatever is beautiful, whatever is lovely, whatever touches my soul, that is what I will write about. Today my soul was touched by flowers.

My yard is brimming with beautiful flowers. Each one was calling my name today.

"Colleen, take a picture of me."
"No, take one of me!"
"Quiet" I said, "I will take one of each of you."

And so I did ~

Vintage Finds

Pretty remnants of greeting cards of the past.

Each thread is a button lovingly handsewn onto the card.

These pretties were a lucky find one day while out shopping a few yard sales.

Her industrious nature, is my special treasure.

Lady Primrose Fragrances have arrived!

"What is that Lovely fragrance you're wearing?" she asked her friend. "Oh, thank you," she replied, "It's called Tryst Noir and I purchased it at Brissonte."

Lady Primrose Bath & Body has arrived.....

We have four beautiful fragrances: Tryst Pink, Tryst Noir, Royal Extract and Celadon. Each one is available in body lotion, body cream, bath gel and silk dusting powder. The bottles are simply exquisite and, when placed in your Bathroom or Boudoir, so glamorous.

Treat yourself to a new fragrance today!

Happiness is.......

I walk into my shop almost everyday. I open the door and head to my studio with plans of all the things I want to accomplish each day but today I took a few photos and as I was looking over the pictures I thought, WOW! How pretty everything looks. Stop in soon and see for yourself. Tomorrow I will be posting photos of my new Bath & Body line. It is so beautiful! You're gonna LOVE it!

Today it is Spring!

I have a Spring-like display as you enter the door of the shop. Can wishing for Spring make it so? Just for today my wish has come true............

Here are some new photos of the driveway and the house. It's not even funny anymore. I want to run away from home, abandon ship, er, house, depart for warmer pastures. And, YES, more of that white fluffy stuff is on the radar for tomorrow. I am getting very, very cranky......

My poor house, it is getting pummeled. The icicles have icicles.

Help me!!!!!!!! I'm drowning in snow.......

A Little Bit of Spring!

I just completed this custom wreath for a client and what a joy it was to design and create it. Surely Spring was at Brissonte' yesterday as I was humming joyfully and working with these lovely blossoms. My client will pick up her wreath today and I will be sad to see it leave, BUT I shall make more wreaths and fill my shop with the joyous signs of Spring.

It's snowing ........ AGAIN and again and again.....

I actually really like living in New England. I especially love the seasons, however, winters with too much snow, must GO! Last week we had over 24 inches of the white fluffy stuff, then yesterday we had another 6 inches mixed with rain creating a dangerously icy Winter Wonderland and all day today it has rained and snowed. Now the weatherman tells us we will have another 3 to 7 inches on Friday. Sheesh......

So I have taken a few pictures of what life at my house looks like. It is really quite pretty if one does not contemplate shoveling on Friday or how dangerous it is to back out of the driveway. Ahhhhh...... New England - ya gotta love it : )
