How Is Your Week Going?

On a scale of one to ten I would have to say mine has been a ten. Last week it was a one. Amazing how small things can impact your entire week and they seem to multiply as the week goes on. Last week I could have crawled back into bed with the covers over my head and stayed there. This week has been fantastic!


One of the stores in the U.K that carries Petit Coterie, The Old Cinema was featured in BBC Homes & Antiques November issue. He was kind enough to send the photo used for the feature and there they were, our burlap pillows. That added a bright spot in my week.


I’m sure many of you have so many great ideas of things to make and the problem is just finding the time. This week, while working on orders I decided to allow some extra time to add some new items that have been on the back burner. Our new tea towels are finally available as well as a new burlap pillow for the holidays. Still have a few other things I want to accomplish but will save those for Saturday.



How is your week going on a scale of one to ten? I do hope it’s a ten for all of you!

Oh my gosh one.... I think mine usually runs about a 8 unless I manage to do something extra for myself that I truly love.... I try to do that as often as possible and it is always something special I do for myself around the house.... Hope this 10 follows you right into next week also... Blessings....

Mine was a 7. Nothing bad but nothing over the top either. Life is good and all those I care for are healthy and happy and can handle what ever issues may come their way. Sea Witch

Im am great and thanks for asking! So glad you are having a good week and congrats on that photo shoot being in spotlight. Sometimes we just need that little extra something to make our week right. I love your new additions and those pillows are just yummy as always. I really need to get one for my cottage...and bedroom..and sofa... see why I am holding back. No control I tell ya..no control...hehe. Hope your next week is just as super~

Congratulations on being mentioned in the magazine. And it was really nice of the shop to let you know. It's probably not likely that you would have just stumbled across the article. I just love having my stuff in magazines!

Mine's about a 7.9 I'd say. I'll rev it up this Saturday, either at Funky Junk Sisters or Queen of Tarte's monthly show. Glad to hear things are going so well!

Hi Michelle,
Love the tea towels, they're gorgeous. My week is going well but really looking forward to next week with antiquing trips and french bistro fare... a petite respite from it all.

So happy this week's a "10" for you!
