It's cold here in early spring, as we complete the Sonoma County Home Show. Rainstorms have beat some of the crowds away. But the bloom of color at my tablecloth stand in the festival hall has been bringing many smiles to passersby, swept back by nostalgia to memories of brighter days in sunny Provence. Many of my clients have visited southern France at some point in their lives or have briefly lived there. For them a Provencal tablecloth is a way of reliving wonderful meals and lingering conversations at the tables of family or friends, or at a romantic restaurant.
But I also encounter the visitor who has never had these experiences but who is taken there by the joy and color of these linens. Might that be you?
Having lived myself in France for a time I never tire sharing these memories with others. Check out your own reaction to my linens at an upcoming fair, or when you open the box with a new order from us here on the website.
