Today is Halloween. Ghosts, goblins, wind howling and chocolate flying out of the bag into my mouth. My clients are sprucing up their homes, readying themselves for the onslaught of family and friends who will invade their guest bedrooms and gorge on the harvest at their dining tables, certainly before any of us are ready for them.
It's also the Annual Christmas Market @ Counting Sheep Antiques in Berlin. WHAT??? Christmas? On November 4th?? Yes. It seems early but I have to admit that I'm listening to Vince Guaraldi playing Charlie Brown Christmas as I make ornaments and order greens and sketch which stockings will hang on the mantel.
Dawne, my partner from Pillows & Things, and I played elves this week for 2 days. I was in heaven. We designed sweet little houses to hang on trees, birdhouses covered with antique French paper and cloches filled with greenery. And my Halloween candy hasn't even been given out :O
Vignette Home Design is winding down the year 2016 with some grandiose resolutions for the year to come. I have decided that my truest love is styling inside your homes and I will work steadily to build that part of my business while at the same time launch a Vignette Home Design SHOP page, which will allow my clients to purchase the things that have warmed and brightened their homes this past year. I will work on my "brand" as well as the social media aspect of my business because, DAMN IT, this is fun!!
An EARLY happy holiday greeting to each and every one of you. I hope our paths will cross soon.
