nos petite aventure!

things we are already enjoying while wandering the west coast!

1. the adorable cottage of Miss Mancha and especially the cozy rooms she prepared for us and our fun dinner party!
2. fabulous lunch in romantic North Beach, our climb to Coit Tower and the AMAZING views ...
3. laughing our way through things lost in translation...
4. saving the precious bottle of wine and jars of foie gras from US immigration.
5. appreciating the Portland architecture differences now that we've landed here...
6. everyone's wonderful hospitality

more to come from the Bohemian Vagabonds... :P

lovely time in Arcachon!

we just got back from a very relaxing week-end at the Bassin d'Arcachon ... gearing up for our trip to the states and then an inspired reopening! lot's of ideas for new things in store when we get back ... depends on the success of our visit and what we come up with.

Kicking back near the coast was just what we needed ... nothing big, just cooking together...hanging out ... relaxation & "chill"! I wish I would have grabbed a few things from our new selection of Terre Rouge and la Fiancée du Mekong ... just the thing for looking chic for a summer getaway. oh well, tant pis! next time... :P

Off to the states and then off to the races!

We have a lovely new organic soap line, Paris Market ... featuring big fat loaves of gorgeous soaps with essential oils, herbs, flowers ... you'll find Fig, Champ de Lavande, Verbena and ... With this line we also have soothing bath salts and some lovely room misters. All handcrafted with organic ingredients and therapeutic properties.

We are also offering some kitchen textiles by Appetite. This is another artisanal, handmade line by Portland artist Erin Albin. Erin creates the artwork, screens the fabrics and then each item is handsewn. We've got her 2010 line of kitchen towels, hot pads and other goodies for the table.

In addition to the beautiful la Fiancée du Mekong women's clothing line ... we're bringing in Terre Rouge, another colorful line of women's spring and summer wear in light cottons and linens ... perfect for summer holidays.

We've been stocking up on new lovelies for our season's reopening ... new jewelry, some great new vintage collections and, of course, some new furniture pieces that have been refurbished and are ready to add character and pizzazz to your home...

We're off to the states end of April ... we're establishing a new offering of vintage women's clothing items and we'll be on a search to stock our vintage corner in time for our reopening... speaking of which ...

We'll be celebrating our grand RE-opening the last week of May ... be sure to stop by and see our new treasures....we'll have more in store by then ... and an even bigger surprise is coming by July so stay tuned!
