I decided to add a vintage santa image as the center piece....gave it a little glitter and used a bit of crepe paper as a border around the image. I then glued the image to a larger circle made from the vintage music sheet paper and added this to the center of my wreath.

Debra of "A French Touch" who is co-located with French Vanilla Home and Garden had the opportunity of appearing on our local cable television show "Go Island South" last week showcasing how easy it is to paint furniture using the wonderful "Annie Sloan Chalk Paint". I was happy that my shop also got a shout-out in this feature ........a little free advertsing is always nice! Check out our video below!
Well this is my first attempt at blogging! It's been quite a year and a half for me. I retired from the Federal Government after 34 years and in October 2006, I started a new retail store called "French Vanilla Home and Garden". In July 2007 I launched my store's e-commerce website and now this....blogging! Who would have thought! Has it been challenging?....a bit, stressful?.... some days, rewarding?....most definitely! I love owning my own retail store, filling it with things I love and helping my customers find that perfect item or gift! I am enjoying this new phase of my life and look forward to learning new things, having new adventures and making new friends along the way!
