Our Favorite Things… Spring Stems and Greenery

This polar vortex is really grabbing a good portion of the country. Here is Central New York, we woke up to below zero temperatures with a wind chill factor of -24 degrees! However, I’m focusing on what’s going on inside – a new shipment of beautiful spring stems and succulents! Nothing chases the cold away […]

Fall Tableware Finds… Costa Nova Pearl in Cocoa

I am in love with Costa Nova’s Pearl dinnerware collection! I’ve been searching for quite a while, trying to find a replacement for an older beaded dinnerware pattern that I favored but just couldn’t anything that truly compared. Costa Nova’s Pearl is a winner… It’s raised beaded-rim design is substantial, much more detailed the most […]

Our Favorites Things… Recycled Candleholders

Who wouldn’t love one of the beautiful new Mesa candles from PADDYWAX?  From the great southwestern inspired pottery to the soothing array of scent blends, they make a perfect gift option. However, these pretty little vessels have another purpose and will long outlive the candle within them.  Once the candles are gone, these pottery pieces […]

Blue and white pottery has long been a tasteful and timeless home decor and dinnerware choice of both homemakers and interior stylists alike.

[…]

Living Beautifully… La Cadeaux Tableware

I have a weakness for pottery… all kids of pottery and dinnerware.  Although, I carry a variety of patterns in my store,  I always find a pattern or piece that catches my eye on vacation.  I have been known to carry large pottery platters and bowls  through the airport and in my carry-on bags to protect […]
