Our First Post

I finally decided to start a blog. I started my business because I loved beautiful flowers, how they made me feel and how happy people were to receive them. Really happy. Soon after I came to realize that applies to almost all beautiful things, and I have always loved to share what I found as it was twice the fun. I don’t need to always possess beautiful things, some you cannot , just having them pass thru my life was enough, and with sharing I got to enjoy whatever it was again however many times I shared. So with this in mind I realized a blog was perfect for me. I want to share not just flowers but all things that I come across that give me joy, make me smile, create serenity. It may be flowers in season, a recent job I am proud of, candle fragrance I found, a tree in bloom, gorgeous linens, great music, a beautiful garden a beautiful room, a great art exhibit, a recipe or another blog. I look forward to sharing with you all and hearing feedback. I think this is going to be fun. I want this to be something you look forward to seeing, opening, reading and making you feel  as good as receiving a fresh bouquet of flowers. -Dorothy Pfeiffer

Our first beautiful thing is a collection of photographs taken during a recent trip to Vaux le Vicomte, outside of Paris. This garden is considered one of the most perfectly proportioned gardens in the world. It is a precursor to the Palace and gardens of Versailles.  I encourage you to visit when possible and read more about its interesting history  at: vaux-le-vicomte

    With a beautiful cup of coffee (from a french bakery) in hand, I toured your Vaux le vicomte and feel happy. I also feel like going to Paris rather than Connecticut this weekend! CHEERS.

    What a lovely beginning, Dorothy! Welcome to the blogosphere, and best wishes for your success. Nothing like a little jaunt to France to start off a cold Friday morning.
