The shops is full of French soaps, linens, dishes, glasses, furniture and home decor items.
Sheila is now stocking some clothing in addition to her jewelry and scarves.
There is something for everyone here...it's a great spot to buy a gift for a friend or indulge in a little something for yourself...perhaps a lavender sachet for your lingerie drawer or an emollient hand cream or maybe you'd enjoy a scented candle.
I popped in a few minutes before the Blogger Tea earlier this month and found some wee gifts for the ladies.
My OOTD snapped before asking if I could take some photos of the shop.
I would buy this mirror in a heartbeat but sadly it is not for sale. I must see if I can find one like it.
French Vanilla, located on Oak Bay Avenue, with plenty of free street parking to allow you ample time to browse.
That looks like a red Valentine heart and some cheery red hyacinths on the table.
Love the Bella Notte bedding.
If you pop in please let me know what you think.
Say hi to Sheila, she's always got a big smile because her shop is a reflection of what makes her happy.
She followed her bliss and opened French Vanilla after a career in government.
I so admire women who are not afraid to take risks.
Coming to a crossroads later in life, listening to one's head and heart and acting on those messages takes courage.
Now if I could only convince her to sell me that mirror....
Hope you've been making the best of your week...
it's been a busy one here so far in The Humble Bungalow.
