Update on Timeless Shabby

Well I promised everyone that I would let you know when Timeless Shabby was in and I'm afraid as soon as the books were in, they were sold ! I'll let you know when there are more in.
Good news this coming week- more wax seal charms will be arriving. As always, numbers of each letter are limited and they tend to be snapped up very fast so if you would like one please be quick!
The typewriter key charms are also on their way and should be here in the next couple of weeks.

Jeanne d'Arc Living- Edition 7 2011

It is that time again...well almost... and the next edition of Jeanne d' Arc Living will soon be in. Please let me know if you would like one as at this stage I only have a few left each time. They are selling so well that I may have to look at getting yet another box full. Well...they are just SO beautiful!

I also have a very lovely Christmas book from Jeanne d'Arc Living on the way. "Christmas- in the French Inspired Home". It has been reprinted in magazine format ( but without any advertising) . Please let me know if you would like me to save you one.
It's so nice to have some fresh ideas for a beautiful family Christmas. 
And, for any one who just can't get enough of the very natural Nordic style, I have some very exciting news!
A new book is due to be released in October! "Amazing Retreats- Under Nordic Skies" looks to be a must have. Here's a little of what will be in it-

" Amazing Retreats- Under Nordic Skies focuses on the authentic and simple life in summerhouses. The most fantastic places, different and charming. More than 400 wonderful pictures, taken by photographer Lonnie Wurtz Jensen. Text by Vivian Christensen, made in cooperation with stylist and indoor architect Helle Leth."

Once again, if you are keen to own a copy, I would love to hold one for you so just let me know via the email button at the top of the page.
Now, something that I am very excited about....for any one who has seen the very ethereal, white angel wings that feature in so many Nordic homes in the Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine....I have four pairs on their way to the shop. They will be $65 and if you require postage, I can give you a quote and we can go from there.
I think that's about it for now. Don't forget to stop and enjoy this beautiful Spring weather we are having : )

Travel Charms

Hot off the press, or at least the soldering iron, I have created a selection of "travel charms".The inspiration was from an old leather suitcase that one of my lovely customers, Jo, gave to me. There is something very vintage about it and so I have designed a range of charms with some very "vintage" colours. Here are the first six and I will have some more available tomorrow.Please email me if you would like to know more...

EST Australia

I am also happy to announce that I now have 14 varieties of the very natural, hand rolled ball soap from EST Australia- complete with new custom made benches. Made from ingredients such as olive oil, goat's milk, french red clay and natural essential oils, they are so gentle on all skin types and many customers are converts since using it. Fragrances include combinations of cinnamon, geranium, lemongrass, lime, ylang ylang, lavender, chamomile, rosemary, cedar wood and fir bay.

The Arrival of French & Sparrow

I am so pleased to say that I now have French & Sparrow clay tags in the shop.

They have a lovely natural-feel, textured finish with various images and words- so lovely!
At $3.50 each they add a special touch to a gift or they can be hung anywhere around the home- on a cloche,
a book, a door knob, around a vase...

You must come in and see them to fully appreciate their beauty. I have had them in the shop for three days now and they are already selling like hot cakes....thank you Kerry!

Jeanne d'Arc Living in store now!

 The 5th Edition 2011 arrived last week and is available to buy for $18 in store or $28 posted to any location in Australia.
In my opinion, it is one of the prettiest editions so far with a dash more colour than past copies. But colours in the utmost delicate, vintage shades- just lovely!
I also have these new Jeanne d'Arc pillow covers with the sweetest of little girls printed on the beautiful white linen. They go so nicely with the white French document pillows. They are available for $45 without an insert or $60 with one. The insert is a very good quality feather pillow. 

(Espoir : French for hope)

I must tell everyone how much I appreciate all the positive feedback I have been receiving and how I love to meet each and everyone of you,
