Orange Love

July 29, 2021

Summer and the color orange have a way of going together in all sorts of ways. They certainly do in our shop displays. The hue has a happiness to it. Many years ago when I had my showroom I was interviewed for a trade publication. Orange was all the rage at the time, and I said I did not really care for the color. Ahhhhh, youth, you can certainly be silly at times. I have grown to love orange so much since then. So much so, that we have a vignette that we lovingly refer to as ‘orange-land’ at both locations. It is a color that can bring much joy.

Lanson Black Label Brut

July 28, 2021

Wine & Dine Wednesday a new Champagne to our shop stock arrived on Friday, Lanson Black Label Brut. Thrilled to be carrying this as this is the bubbly that they serve at Wimbledon. It is super tough to find so if you see a bottle out & about and you are looking for an exceptional Champagne, by all means snatch it up. Below a little bubbly speak from the maker.

Le Black Label Brut owes its iconic name to Victor Lanson who gave it in 1937, both as a proof of openness to the world and as a tribute to the Royal Court of England which Lanson has been officially supplying since 1900. This Champagne is a balanced alliance of vitality and finesse, freshness and elegance, characteristic of the Lanson Style.

A State Of Gratitude

July 27, 2021

Giving thanks to me is a constant. Be it to my maker, the universe, those around me, the moment. It is absolutely a state of mind. It means looking at the positive. Even when there might be very little positive swirling around. But find it. It brings a sense of joy and contentment. I find, the more I am thankful for, the more I find to be thankful for. It is a beautiful cycle.

Each day search out a bit of beauty. Find it in unexpected places. Big or small. That beauty has a way of multiplying right in front of your eyes.

The Gift Of Hydrangea

July 23, 2021

Flower Friday all about a big fabulous bucket of dreamy blue hydrangea that was a gift from artist Theresa Stirling yesterday when she brought me a bunch of her new fab artwork for the shop. Garden flowers hold such a special place in my heart. These found their way into a display for all to enjoy.
