a touch of romance

Love is in the air and my heart is full!
Come along and follow me through the doors of Surroundings and you too will fall in love...
if only for the moment...

Even though my palette is always a wash of white and cream...it is impossible to hide the true colors of romance. Touches of red pepper the shop and warm the senses as well as the soul!

I love vintage linens and it is a joy to showcase these cheerful French classics.
Worn, loved and treasured...
and they have the character to prove it.


From torn linens to elegant china...it all blends together seamlessly.

A few scraps of upholstery fabric, a yard or two of grosgrain ribbon, and a vintage velvet rose...
Voila...romance!


...And a touch of country gingham goes a long way. This tufted heart garland is as whimsical as it is charming.

Of course no display in my shop is complete without the addition of a nest..every season is the reason for a new beginning...hence the nest! 

 Thanks for joining me on this heart felt tour of Surroundings. I send you warm wishes and rose scented dreams!


Fill your heart and home with love during this most romantic season!  XOXOXO
