Petit Coterie is Going To Australia

Photo courtesy of: Simple Things Small Joys

I think it is always such a pleasant surprise when you wake up with the idea that today is probably going to be just another day of meeting deadlines and work and then something happens to completely change the course of an ordinary day. That surprise came in the form of an email from a friend in Australia. I know many of you know Cathy Penton, she has been featured in numerous magazines here in the U.S. as well as in Australia.

Cathy and her partner Angela Osment are frantically working to open their new shoppe in Highfields Old Australia. called Simple Things Small Joys . I was thrilled that Cathy and Angela wanted to carry Petit Coterie pillows in their new shop. I have long admired Cathys talent not only as a designer of gorgeous charms but also her designs in fabric.

I have received so many nice emails from ladies in Australia and now they can purchase them from Cathy and Angela. If you have a moment please do stop by their blog, have a look and watch for their grand opening. Thank you Cathy and Angela, you turned an ordinary day into a spectacular day.

I hope your day turns out spectacular,

Hi Michelle! I bought one of your burlap pillows today at the Country Living Fair! It is stenciled with the name Amundsen. Interestingly enough, we have friends with that last name, and it is heading out in the mail to them tomorrow!! It was my favorite find of the day! Hope all is well!
