Treasures From Tracey


Do you know my lovely and talented friend Tracey from 

Not only does she have one of the most gorgeous blogs out there,
but she also has THE most divine online shop ever!

I've purchased my fair share of lovelies from sweet Tracey this past year,
and with each package that arrives from her, she outdoes herself...
the packaging, presentation, everything about a package from her is simply magical.

I purchased this gorgeous French-inspired table runner
from Tracey a couple of weeks back...


and this is how it arrived on my front door...


 dried lavender, wrapped lovingly in jute twine...


a burlap sachet filled with more aromatic lavender...


pages from French books...


sweet vintage buttons...


little touches that make a big impact.


Merci, Tracey!

Have a beautiful Tuesday!

oh yes, I know Tracey ... well, we're practically neighbors ... I was privy to the Fifi photo shoot at her luscious home ...

you should see her home office where she wraps all of these l.o.v.l.i.e.s.

she just added my painted Madonnas to her religious line ... I feel so honored!

Sarah said...

Anne, I so agree. It is the extra attention to details with a special touch that makes a package memorable. Beautiful linen runner, and lovely extras. I'm one of Tracey's followers, but I'm off to visit the shop again right now. I just might need something!
Hope all went as scheduled today. ~ Sarah

Who doesn't know Tracey and her beautiful photographs. I spend (and I mean this literally) hours just staring at her images...such inspiration.
I kept every little thing that she tucked into a package I recieved from her. She truly does have the gift of presentation. Why...just look at her tablescapes...details, details, details!

What a lovely runner! I be it smelled amazing when you opened your package. She didn't miss a detail did she?

Annie Louise said...

I totally agree!! I purchased some wonderful finds from Tracey's shop. Not only are the prices fantastic, when the package arrived, I was totally thrilled. I took the longest time savoring opening the goodies, they were wrapped so beautifully and so many extra little goodies in the box. Purchasing something from French Larkspur is a fantastic experience right from the beginning. I was so pleased with my purchase and the wrapping/packaging I was running around the house squealing with delight--my family just kept smiling right along with my happiness.

I got to meet Tracy at jen's get together last December. She's very sweet and oh so talented.

Between You and Me said...

Love what you got from her....
I've got to get better at actually ordering some of these beautiful things from all these very talented bloggers!!!

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hey Anne,
Thanks for your visit, you always impress me getting around to everyone! About your rosemary: Try to take some clippings of your rosemary plant so you plant it at your new place. I know it's overwhelming moving... well maybe not since you are moving to the most darling place on Earth (but your new place needs a little rosemary though ;) I always just drop mine in water and it starts growing roots, especially in this warm weather. Happy night!
