Fall Colors

After the bright lights and clear hues of summer we always look forward to our favorite season.  Time for hot cider, warm treats from the oven, soups, family and thinking of gift giving.  Don't forget to look at our tempting treat!

Cotton Balls and Rust

While strolling through the antique fair we kept being drawn to the textures in the booths.  This space had a bit of everything we love- old rusty iron, cement- especially busts and heads, soft texture of the cotton and a hint of shiny in the gold gilt and mirror. We find comfort in this mix. Do you?
Enjoy the Journey,

Magical Scents

In a small street near from Galleries Lafayette, you enter a courtyard after passing large iron gates and follow your nose to this wonderful shop.  Fragonard has been in France for ages.  There is a Perfume Museum upstairs from the shop but we can't wait to go inside to pick up our favorite fragrances, gifts and candles.  Mine is called Miranda and I'm complimented on it all the time.  Do you have a favorite Fragonard scent?

That Time of Year

The trees are beginning to loose their leaves and rustle down the streets and staircases.  The light strikes rich golden hues as people stroll home for dinner or to change to go out.  Photographers call this time the "Golden Hour' and you can certainly tell why it is named so.

We have added more fun things to tempt you so please look at the shop when you have a moment!
