Hi... You may remember me. I'm Ruth. I write this blog.
(I know, I should use that term loosely lately).
It's nice to meet up with you again!
Okay, introductions aside, how in the world are you?
Some of you have so sweetly inquired as to whether I am still breathing.
Thank you. ;)
I assure you, all is well. All is CAHRAZY - BIZZZEEEE
but all is good!
You know, since there is just SO much to cover
(too much, really, for one blog post)
I'll chat and fill you in a little
and maybe you can fill me in on YOU.
- There is new inventory sitting in the shop just waiting to be photographed and put on the site. It's shame for it to sit there any longer, so getting it all up on the site going to be priority #1!
- A new batch of Emma Bridgewater is in the works. Since re-introducing it back into inventory late last year, it has been well-received and I know I sure am glad to see back on the shelves!
In the area of magazines, we just received the really gorgeous
first issue of 2011 of Norway's VAKRE HJEM & INTERIORS magazine.
BIG JEANNE D'ARC LIVING NEWS, PEOPLE!
Previously, each issue was $32.00...
The price has dropped to $26.00 per issue!
What do you think??? Pretty great news, huh?
If you are a regular purchaser, this is fabulous news!
And if you've been holding back due to the price tag,
I'd encourage you to jump in -- this is what you've been waiting for! :)
Jeanne d'Arc Living is wrapping up publication of it's second issue for 2011
and we'll have it in hand for shipping in just a couple short weeks.
Pre-orders for that issue are now being taken online --
it's shaping up to be another beauty!

In other Jeanne d'Arc Living news....
1.) To happily accomodate the MANY requests for back issues of the magazine,
we have order some of every issue they still have copies of -- from 2009 and 2010.
They don't have ALL the issues available, but there are about 7 different back issues
and we obtained some of them all for you!
They will be shipping here in conjunction with issue #2 in a couple weeks.
These back issues will go up on the site shortly.
2.) In talks with Jeanne d'Arc Living, they are still optimistically holding to their
hopes of reinstating shipment of their product range to the U.S. again -- sometime
(hopefully) during the 1st quarter of this year. That is not a timeframe they can
be completely held to, but suffice to say, we're closer now than ever to getting their
products back in our pretty little hands, and then into YOURS! :)
We are just particularly excited about that price break with the
magazine itself. That is just such great news!!
Well, many other "doin's" around here, but my lovlies,
it is almost 1 a.m. here for me and I'm in need of some beauty sleep. :)
I already know what I'm going to blog about next...
some pretty big renovation about to begin at my house.
Oh yes, let the fun begin. ;)
Are many of you regular users of Facebook??
I ask because I sure am -- being at the desk so much throughout the day,
I have Facebook open in a tab online all day.
I have gotten to be friends with some of my customers and blog friends
and it is SO MUCH FUN!
If you are on Facebook, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE to look me up!!
We could have so much fun chatting and getting to know each other even better!
I'm on, with my personal, Ruth Harsham page, found
And of course there is the page on Facebook for
The Beautiful Life which I keep up with as as well.
You can get to that page by clicking
So consider it an open invite to come "friend" me on Facebook --
it'll be fun! :)
