Blissfully Awaiting

My new friend Tricia Samsal of VintageBliss is the creator of the most beautiful altered art, and paper creations, she also sells paper, and handmade stamps...when we do events, her space is so kool. I love it! But what is really special about Tricia is...Tricia. She is so sweet and she's always cute and well dressed, taking snapshots for her beloved, magazine Blissfullly Traveled. Anyone who knows me, is aware that I am a magazine w@#$#ore you get the picture. lol! I love magazine and when I laid eyes on Tricia's most recent issue I had to see what was in store, soooo. It's on it's way to my lovely hands and I can't wait. Check it out isn't the cover pretty. I would love to have a magazine, I'm working on that everyday, so many things on my lists to do. One thing at a time Ebony. lol!

A Mini MarketPlace

Several weeks ago I announced the opening of my new shoppe. It's the tiniest marketplace you'll ever see. I believe that starting small makes you appreciate the times when you get big...and it's more feasible for business right now.

I wanted to share with my readers who are interested in finding interesting places to become a vendor. If your a crafter or artisan looking for a neat place to sell your merchandise or product let me know. I will be opening at the end of the month, I'm so excited! I decided there will be no monthly fee to become apart of Le French Alchemists Mini Marketplace, I would just collect a small percentage of sales. My dream is to have a co-op of talented, creative women who want to build a great atmosphere for shopping and sharing there creativity. The French Alchemists is the place to do it.

For more info call me or send me a comment. I would love to hear from you.

Today I decided to play, with the camera...I was so restless, bored {as if I didn't have a list of things to do} and tired. No make-up just...me. Not too fanci> lol!

The {New} Vintage Fanci

I'm in love with vintage fancy...lace, ruffles, frills and any thing feminine. Recently I've expanded my personal styling business to vintage bridal and bridal services. I also make silhouette tee's and a little home deco. For the last several weeks I've been hammering my brain as to what my signature style is. Up until now I've struggled with explaining exactly what it is. I was complimented incessantly on my good eye and sense of style but deep inside I couldn't articulate what that style was. UNTIL NOW!

I believe my style is {New} Vintage Fanci, by new I mean it's fresh, modern and feminine with a vintage flair. It's a touch of bling, lace, creams, whites,rose, upcylcled re-purposed denim, linen and cotton fabrics. It's the epitome of romantic and it's MY STYLE! It may not be original but I love it and it's all me.

Pink is Pretty!

Happy Pink Saturday! It's crazy because I grew up one of those girls who was kind of a tomboy/girlie girl. Weird I know. I went through a phase where I was one of the boys and I hated pink...I think we've all went through that stage. As an adult woman, I rediscovered my femininity and my passion for pink. Now it's my favorite color { no really ask Mr.Robinson} that's why I was delighted to find out about Pink Saturday. Hope you enjoy, I've posted one of my favorite Audrey H. movies, a cute book I read, flowers with keys, cupcakes and a cake I made.
Have a fabulously fancy weekend!

I think the modern day his and her sinks are great...but having my very own vanity would be fabulous. I would love to be able to sit down at a place where my feminine treasures are not crossed with masculine objects. There was a time when his and her sinks didn't exist and there would be one bathroom to share, one sink to share but the women being the ladies that they were preferred to possesses their own space a vanity perhaps. I love vanities and wish to have one of my own. Hummmm...a lady can dream!

Late night blog post...absolutely necessary, I normally try to post first thing in the morning. But as I'm having a late night blog stroll I come across one of my favorite blogging destinations {This is glamorous} and to my sheer delight a post featuring photographer Olivia Graham for InStyle Magazine and what is it you ask...the shortest, sweetest,

sassiest wedding dresses you ever seen!

Oh, like my girl Rachel Zoe says "Bananas" or "I die" lol!

Hope you like if as much as I did.

Honey...I want a Barn!

It's official I Want A Barn! Ok so I really don't want a barn but how can you blame me...barn is the new boho. And it's fabulous. You may be saying ebony what are you talking about? Well I'm talking about BarnChic it's fabulous and I love it. It's a bit of the rustic romance meaning, lots of lace, tulle, ruffles, bling, vintage, antique, shabby, muted shades of blues, greys, pinks and lots of white, in the most unlikely places to shop flea markets, antique stores, warehouses etc and yes possibly a barn...I admit my style has changed a bit over the years but I must admit it's ever evolving and my heart is set on BarnChic. So much that I have a little secret brewing up in my soul. Those of you who read my blog know that I always have something brewing in my soul so, you shouldn't be surprised. But it's going to be fabulous and I can't wait.

Thanks to the ladies at Urban Barn who have inspired such glamorous barn chic style...I am swooning this summer. Barn Chic is my new Summer Lover.

What's yours?

Truly, Madly, Deeply...In love with Ruche!

Because I am a big blog reader, I knew Petit Plume would be selling her fabulous creations on Ruche.com which I thought was awesome...but because Ruche is my favorite website I was browsing today and to my surprise Petit Plume and Ruche is a match made in heaven. Their new look book is to die for, really I want everything, everything I say. For those of you who read my blog you would know that I posted about Stephanie Williams, Ruche's very talented, and extremely gifted photographer so take a look at what I see and tell me what you think. I think it's one of the most romantic online stores out there. Truly it is, I'm madly in love and deeply moved by the photography. Excellent job, Stephanie, Ruche and Petit Plume you make an awesome trio.
