Do you have a "fear of decorating"?
Do you pick up, and put down, and pick up, and put down accessories at the store, measure a piece of furniture, know it is perfect, but afraid to commit because, while it looks so pretty there, it might not work in your house?
Have you ever driven all the way back to the store because when you got home, you realized that thing might just work after all?
Did you pray the whole car ride back to the store that it would still be there when you arrived?
Have you ever driven all the way back to the store, the NEXT DAY, and it was gone and you're still thinking about that thing to this day?
Even Anne and I have done this with our own homes! We've only done it a few times though and have vowed to never let each other do this again. Anne had to hear about a set of sherbet glasses for 6 years (OK! 10 years).....and I had to hear about an amazing oil painting Anne let slip through her hands over and over again! Nancy

This is a wonderful poster! I have one in my family room. We have them available in the store in other colors. They are also perfect in the office and I think I am going to add one in my play room!
Initially I was attracted to it because it looked great, loved the crown, and is a great reminder in my busy household of three children. It quickly became the motto with my girlfriends and has become a top seller in our store. The sentiment is one that seems to speak to most everyone at the moment.
I find more and more that it is the simple things that lift my spirits. Everyday visitors come in my store and they all say that they feel a sense of calm as they enter...almost as if they are dreaming...Is it the wonderful candle that is burning on the counter? All the gorgeous furniture, the stacks of linens? Our wonderful friendly staff? I don't know.. but this sign seems to keep me in check of what is most important....and basically reminds me to not fret about the little things! Nancy

Here is a great idea on how to group some of your favorite items and create a Romantic centerpiece using various candles and candleholders and some silver...I hope I inspired you to dust off that silver tray you got for a wedding present! This is the perfect January centerpiece!
