Grand Opening & Creme Brulee...

It's finally here! The grand opening of my new website Painted White!!! I have spent many late nights perfecting my new design painstakingly adding lots of unique details! I hope that you all get a chance to get over there today to see the new "digs" and check everything out. Please let me know what you think!

In honor of the occasion and to start things off with a bang, I am offering my second giveaway! I am calling this one the "Creme Brulee Grand Opening Giveaway." Every purchase you make on our site, from now until February 9th, automatically enters you into the contest. You can also participate by posting a comment in our guestbook on the new site (please include an email address where you can be notified if you are the lucky winner!).

I have gathered a collection of white on ivory on cream on gold favorite shades to decorate my home! There are two "Creme Brulee" products (bath salts and a scented candle) that gave me the inspiration for the giveaway name. I think it is the perfect description of the colors you will find too!
The winner will receive lots of beautiful products including hand painted items and vintage finds!
I love the gold detail on the handle of this teacup that is included...
A handmade paper greeting card made by moi!
The scent of this candle is to die me!

I even tucked in some vintage eyelet trim and a collection of white, ivory and cream buttons (vintage of course!).
A seashell from my artist grandmother's collection!

Please Note: You will not be entered into the giveaway by posting comments on my blog.

Good luck to everyone who participates! I look forward to getting your feeback on my new site!

Creme Brulee. Mmmmmmmm. I realize the items in your give away aren't edible, but just the thought of them is making my mouth water for the yummy dessert - and it's only 7am. :-) Anyway, once again congrats on your Grand Opening. Everything is beautiful, as usual!

Hello, Alice!--

Just found my way to you from Antique Paperie's site. Congratulations on your brand new launch! How wonderful and exciting. :) I see from your favorites list that we share some of the same predilections--from Wonder Years reruns to White Oleander.

My blog for women entrepreneurs (especially shop owners), A Boutique Industry, will be re-launching with a brand new look within a week. Would love to have you stop by and check it out!

Wishing you all the best with your business in this New Year!
