Human Flower Project....Mass. Flower Bridge
Know this is a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning in the early fall season.

I usually spend Sunday afternoon searching the internet or magazines for plant design ideas. I am always amazed how talented many people are with their design ideas. This has got to be one of the best so far. I am already thinking about how I can create this design at home our in my boutique. What do you think about this and would you try something like it?

Something about Pure Linen......
There is just something about pure linen from Belgium that makes me melt inside just from the site of it in a picture. It's pure and elegant, comfortable and relaxed properties just bring thoughts of happy living. One of the best qualities about linen is that it is cool in the summer with its light and breezy look and feel and usual light and bold colors. Then autumn and winter come and just the change in color to the grays, browns, eggplant and deep oranges bring out the cozy, warm and nesting feel of the fabric. It's elements of sophistication and luxury in a basic down to earth feel and look are just intoxicating to my soul.

"Linen is crisp, clean and comfortable. Soft, yet strong and durable. The more it is used, the softer and stronger it becomes. It can absorb up to 20% of its weight in moisture before it feels damp, and easily releases moisture to the air to remain cool and dry to the touch. Flax remains colorfast and launders beautifully. It has the additional advantage to be non-allergenic. Flax requires considerably fewer pesticides and fertilizers than other crops. The fibers are recyclable and eventually biodegrade.
" (quote from libeco)

We carry the Libeco line of fine quality linen from Belgium. Libeco is one of only 2 remaining authentic linen companies in the world. Their tradition of producing the finest quality linens goes back to the late 1800's.
The new fall collection will be in shortly and we still have some of the summer line still available at a discount.

There are so many reasons to visit New York City. But, this yearly event is probably the most fun and interesting if you are a real chocolate lover and happen to be a fan of great fashion. New York in November is just glorious. No humidity, a bit chilly, you can wear all those beautiful scarves, coats and fancy boots. People seem to be in really up beat moods. Shopping in the Fall/Winter is just amazing as well. So if you are planning on being any where near New York in November, take the time to attend this wonderful treat in the big apple.

Be Beautiful Naturally!!.....Use John Masters Organics.

I am so excited to have just added the fabulous organic skin and hair line by John Masters Organics. The line is scheduled to arrive at Botany's Desire on Mon. Sept. 15th. This is the most eco-friendly salon and spa quality line out there and at a very affordable price.

Quote from John Masters himself:

Caring about yourself and caring about the earth don't have to be mutually exclusive. For over 15 years, this has been the guiding force in creating Super Natural Beauty for your hair, your skin, and your home.

John Masters Organics grew out my desire to create a luxury beauty line that treats the earth with respect. The result is the culmination of the hard work performed by people all over the world. Their dedication to growing and harvesting organic and wild-crafted ingredients is honored at John Masters Organics.

We only get one body, and we only get one planet. Why not treat them both with the utmost care? I didn't want to deal with chemicals and synthetics everyday, and I truly believed that when given the option, others would feel the same. Why use synthetics when natural products work better and are safer for the environment?

This labor of love has yielded over 30 sumptuous products, and it gives me great pleasure to share this Super Natural Beauty with you.
