The High-Point of my Month!

I just got my May Romantic Home Magazine. Yeah! I always look forward to it every month. This one is a special Mothers Day issue so it's especially pretty. As a store owner, I get mine a bit earlier than anyone else. So...I feel special.
If any of you store owners want a cheap way to advertise, this is it. It's about $20.00 a month and you get your name in the back of the magazine and 10 copies of Romantic Homes to sell.
So, it's a win win. Here is just a preview of some of the pictures, I liked. I'm sure you will get yours soon.
This is a store called
"dear lizzie"
Boutique and Bistro
In Highland, Utah

Love Sea Shells and Jewels

Love this little room. I need a little granddaughter.

Oprah and Dr. Oz

If any of you watched Oprah yesterday, Dr. Oz was on talking about the amazing Infrared Sauna. So exciting because I have been using this sauna for a couple of months just next door at Bella Forme in the Mill Creek Town Center. I love this, and wished I could have one at home. Some of the health benefits that Dr. Oz was talking about are: Pain Management, Infrared provides deep penetration of heat for arthritis, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain. (I have been using for my bad hips) Relaxation, this is where I do my best magazine reading! Detoxification, Infrared penetrates your body tissue allowing your body to release these toxins through a deep detoxifying sweat. I like it so much as you don't come out all sweaty, you can still go out in public after using!

Dr. Oz says: It makes the same rays that come from the sun and filters out the UV radiation, so it only gives you the infrared radiation. That radiation that's infrared goes a little bit into your skin so, without heating you up and the external environment too much, it heats the body up. He also says the high temperature helps lower blood pressure and increase blood circulation. So... it gets your heart to beat faster, and it burns calories, raises your metabolism a bit, and you sweat out the toxins. All this happens when I am reading my favorite new magazine and relaxing. So if you need more information definitely go on to Oprah. If you live close to Bella Forme, hop on over for a free demonstration. You will love it!!

You Don't Need a Castle

Several months ago, one of my customers told me about this article in Country Living, and she said I had to see it as it is just my style. I often go back to it as it always inspires me so I thought I would share it with you. The owners of this double wide mobile home, travel half the year for their antique business in Elizabethtown called Cottage Gardens. You would never know that this is a double wide. Each room is filled with treasures and an unbelievable touch of whimsy.
I just love it!

Vintage Glass Lamp Fettish

I am a bit obsessed with vintage glass lamps. I have these cute lamps all through my store and in most of my displays. They just go with everything. They are getting harder and harder to fine. All the ones in my store have been re-wired, conditioned and cleaned so they almost look new. I insist that I only sell lamps that have been completely gone through. (I am a fireman's daughter, so I am funny about that, too many horror stories!). So... Al, my lamp guy does all that kind of work and then his wife Carole makes me darling shades, mostly out of Bella Notte fabrics. Each one is unique and darling. If you have one of these old lamps and need it re-wired and a shade made for it, just let me know and we can get it done for you. It's great to bring new life to an old lamp. The one above has an aqua Bella Notte multi fabric shade. Love it!
This one is a bit taller and very unique. It has a aqua lace shade

Another Bella Notte shade in Collette.

Here is a cutie. Brass base with glass and prisims with a
ivory dot shade.

Glass lamp with a Bella Notte Raspberry multi shade

Another Bella Notte shade in Tuscan. I love the base of this one.

This glass lamp has a shade made of an old tablecloth in soft petal pink.

Yesterday, a gal who use to have a store similar to mine, came in to
let me know that she was opening a cupcake store in Tacoma. I've thought
that would be such a fun business to be in as there are so many cute cupcake things. So
as we were walking around my store I was showing her all my cupcake items, many
designed by Rhonda Addison, so I thought I would share with you. You will all want
to make some cupcakes today!

These are our Bath Bakery Candles,
packaged in this darling bakery box with a
cupcake on one side and a cake on the other.
Available in Chocolate Cupcake, Creme Brulee, Angel Food Cake, + others
