OK this is hypothetical at this moment I have eluded to in the past, I am hoping to set up shop and start a small business selling things that are very much "my style", think old world meets European meets French rustic way to describe a look that doesn't necessarily fit in a perfect neat box all the time but loosely that's the look I am after. I am doing my "research" right now and having quite a lot of fun. I like to know what excites people in the marketplace. Below are a host of things I have my eye on to "carry" and I would LOVE your feedback.  Just let me know what you think about the feeling of the overall vibe of the accessories here, is there an item or item(s) that you think the marketplace needs more of/is saturated with? 

 Some of these things I found through my own needs and frustration in not being able to find them ......figuring if I was having a hard time finding something like this, then there must be many others having that same frustration. Would love to know what you like, what you don't like, what excites you here. Thank you so very much, your feedback is appreciated more than you can possibly imagine. To thank you for your time and contemplation, I am doing a giveaway! All details on bottom of the post. To be eligible for the  giveaway just comment on this post and I will select a winner and post the winner on Saturday afternoon.  If you want an additional chance to win, like me or leave a comment on my Facebook page. (can't believe I am saying that, feel so "hip") Click here to visit The Enchanted Home on Facebook.  Thank you and happy make believe shopping!

This would be a labor of love and a great way for me to restart my design career slowly as I finish my own house (well we all know its never really finished but you know what I mean)! I look forward to hearing your feedback, here we go......

Love this line of very elegant old world silver pieces, trays, cache posts, planters, serving pieces...really exquisite! Well priced too:) Imagine a pretty orchid potted in these or rolled hand towels for an elegant powder room, beautiful perfume bottles displayed on the gorgeous scalloped trays......

And for a European touch in the kitchen...some fun reproductions of old European faves, bread bowls, wood trivets and cutting boards, dough bowl, grain feeders, olive trays. These pieces are just gorgeous and are vintage reproductions finished with natural beeswax, vintage hardware and weathered detailing adds to the beauty of these pieces!

And you know I love my decorative porcelains......

How great are these pieces for the ultimate blue and white statement in a bathroom?

Can we seriously ever have enough pillows!! One of my favorite looks, needlepoint and aubusson pillows....a total classic! A little something for everyone from very traditional to more fun and transitional.

And you know how I feel bell jar lanterns, so pretty and works in virtually any space. These are offered in a host of patterns and 4 sizes, S, M,L and Jumbo.

More beautiful porcelains.....can never have enough blue and white jars!!

How about these pretty chandelier lamp shades? Again had a hard time finding some I liked so was happy to discover these!!

Love white staffordshire dogs!! Will have them in several colors, they are great decorative objects!

Painted pieces......

More cute dogs.....

 And for all you blue and white lovers.....

And for all you lovers of old world feeling linens with monograms.....(best part is this are REALLY reasonable and oh so pretty)!

This is a beautiful line of canvas art, very old world, antiqued feeling and nothing over 150 dollars!!! There will also be an option to have these framed, and on average they are about 26x19 to give you an idea of sizing..they are really beautiful in person!

Heres a picture of one in my house so you can see what it looks like a bit better..

And last but not least I will also carry a line of custom the ones I designed in my own kitchen that many asked about. They will be offered in a variety of sizes and containers....
 The lemon leaf topiaries are such a classic...they work in almost any room, any interior

Phew!! This was a lot to take in. But you know I highly value your opinions so now its time for me to hear from you! What excites you here? Anything? All of it? What does the marketplace need more of/less of? Cannot wait to hear. Above all else I want to stay true to what I love, my style and stay with what I know and love. That is my mission and realize you cannot be all things to all people. Can't wait to hear from you!

Now to be eligible for the wonderful giveaway (below) it is simple....just leave me a comment below telling me what you love here and if you want a second chance, you can either like me on Facebook or leave a comment on The Enchanted Home's Facebook by clicking here. Wow, I have come a long way just saying that about Facebook!

Here's the goodies!
One winner will receive a dozen monogrammed linen cocktail napkins!


One winner will receive 3 linen monogrammed guest towels in your choice of white/white or ecru/white. 

Good luck everyone and thank you again for your support always...I cannot think of a "panel of great minds" whose opinions could possibly count as much as yours!
