It's been a bit crazy here lately with a HUGE painting to finish, projects for clients and keeping the business humming.  Wearing all the hats yourself can be a challenge, but being your own boss is worth it. 
Less moving parts (read: difficult people) to "gum up the works" as my Grandpa used to say.
I apologize for being a bit preoccupied. I came across these mustard jars the other day online and was reminded how exceptional packaging can make even the mundane objects in life seem so much more appealing.
Only the French could make mustard look this good!
Check out all the varieties
and have a great weekend!

I stopped by this store in Paris last year for a gift and I LOVED the packaging! They are all so cute, and I don't even like mustard but definitely tried all of their varieties.

Hang in there, Anne! I t does get crazy at time, but I'm with you, I like being my own boss.
Happy Friday.

Please pass the mustard Anne - I could use a dose of something spicy as I too have been wearing many hats and feeling a bit weary but as you said, I would not want it any other way!
rest easy - it is friday!

I was just in Paris and bought these because the window display caught my eye! Now I do not want to eat them because they are too pretty. Love seeing them here too!

these are fabulous! I think the carzy spring bug is in the air, I too have been swamped! I hope you find some time to smell the roses this weekend ~

I have bought that Maille
Mustard for years. Love your
thoughts, and those recycled
Champagne caps are precious.
Thanks for stopping over Anne.
Enjoy the Spring weekend, at last. yvonne

Good luck juggling everything! I know all your hard work will pay off!
Those jars are darling, it's so true that presentation can increase the appeal of a just about anything, right?

I used to buy the mustard in France that had a colored ring around the bottom and you could use as a glass once it was empty. I still have a couple.
