Are you ready for May's Jeanne d' Arc Magazine?

We are SO VERY ready and May's edition of the Jeanne d' Arc Living magazine looks like it promises to be full of fresh blooms!

Isn't that bouquet exquisite? To me that is the perfect combination for a May bride.

 I am very much looking forward to this one! Some of the features include: Growing Columbines and Cranesbill, Planting in Non-Traditional Pots, The Summer's Sweetest Hostess Gifts, Mannequins and Flour Sacks, 

Delicious Food with Eggs, Melons and Strawberries....I see some wonderful recipe potential for Memorial Day weekend!

Dreams baths...just for fun.

Hey there friends! Hope you all are enjoying April. Looks like spring has finally graced all of us with her presence. You may have noticed I have not been blogging much lately. Yes, I have been posting pictures but very little in the way of commentary (you might even enjoy it more this way?). Besides the normal daily runnings of the store we are also preparing for an event some friends and I are putting together for you! The event is in May and will replace our beloved Bryn Du show which is no longer happening. If you follow me on Facebook then you already know about it (Please join us there! It's a party every day!). If you don't know make sure you sign up for my email mailing list (on the right side on this blog) as we're sending the formal invites out this week.

Now, how about a little bathroom fantasy trip to liven up the day?
