I will never forget going in her shop- I thought I was in heaven. Hand carved and painted, then dressed with antique pieces of old lace and beads.

Yes - definitely this will be a fun sale to put together. But after Paris! Stay tuned for further details on these upcoming Romancing the Home Events. We are busy creating magic for you!
