Parisian Inspiration....

I do not know what it is, but Paris calls to me! Its a place I have not had the chance to visit (yet!), but hope to someday. I love the architecture that fills the city, the history that is in every nook and cranny, and the chic and sophisticated style that the city oozes. For now I am content to fill a little niche in my shop with Parisian inspired indulgences.

Some of my favorites are part of a fabulous paper line we carry...they have some of the absolute BEST vintage graphics I have had the privilege of finding. We just received more of the Paris 2008 Desk calendars (we sold out of our first shipment!) and if you want one I would hurry....we can not get anymore this year. We also have a limited number of the large sized calendars left!

Make a statement and personalize all of your gifts with our Parisian inspired gift tags...they are a must have! The assorted Parisian scenes on magnets are a favorite too....keep them for yourself or slip one in with the next card you give someone....a little touch of Paris for the recipient. We have an assortment of other Parisian goodies for be sure to stop in and pick out a few to treat yourself....see you soon!

K. Hall Designs

We have been busy this week, rearranging and making room for the new items we have received. We are featuring our new Home Fragrance line from K. Hall Designs for this post...we are so excited to have this line in the shop. K. Hall is a fabulous line that is celebrating its 10th year offering products that soothe and relax. All of their products are made in the United States and the majority are created in St. Louis, MO (U City).

K. Hall strives to make their products as naturally as possible and still allow them to have a shelf life. Their products are a minimum of 95% natural and most are a higher percentage than that. They use both 100% essential oils and a blend of essential and other oils. Utilizing this philosophy allows their frangrances to smell "comforting, familiar, fresh, and real." As opposed to smelling synthetic or fake.

Their candles are an all vegetable blend with a good quantity of soy included. They also blend with other waxes to have a denser wax to offer for their candles and these products are produced by American Farmers and is a 100% renewable resource. To top it off they use an all cotton core there are no worries about burning your new candle. Your new candle will burn for approximately 60 hours. Here is a tip from K. Hall to aid in the effort for a "greener" environment: After your candle is done burning, clean it out and use it as a drinking glass.

We also offer K. Hall diffusers, they were actually one of the first domestic companies to hand make diffusers. So needless to say they have been able to find the best elements that allow them to create a truly fabulous product. Their diffusers are made with many natural oils and they do not add extendors or enhancers. Your diffuser will last four months on average, but it really depends on the make up of the individual oils used for the diffuser. They offer a few tips to prolong the life of your diffuser: keep out of direct sunlight and away from vents.
We have a nice selection of scents to choose from, the scents include: Moss, Flax-Linen, Milk, Lavender, Pomegranate and Cypress and Cassis. Our favorite right now is Pomegranate, what will yours be? Stop in soon to find it....see you soon:)
