ABOUT MY STORE/HOLIDAY CLOSURES
I’m always thrilled when the monthly editions of Jeanne d’ Arc Living arrive from
Copenhagen. Every issue is
filled with French-inspired, neutral décor with beautiful antiques, gardens,
linens, interiors and seasonal recipes.
The most recent copy arrived last week and featured outdoor articles dear to the hearts of the residents of Denmark. The weather is still a bit chilly there but the warmer summer days are just ahead. The article below describes the region's beautiful canola flowers "swaying in the breeze and giving off a slightly particular fragrance."
Another article (below) focuses on a home in the northernmost part of Holland. Written under the title of "French Vintage", the photos are absolutely gorgeous!
The next time you are visiting The Purple Pear, be sure to take a few moments to check out our selections of Jeanne d' Arc Living. What a pleasant way to spend a quiet evening at home, browsing through this truly beautiful publication.
