Launch Delayed {and other matters of National Security}

Good evening everyone!

Well, there is a first time for everything.

Tomorrow we are not able to launch our new collection because my whole family has been fighting the flu since last Thursday.

Every. Single. One.

With Christmas boxes exploding all over our home we have taken turns getting sick and trying to take care of each other.

So, as much as I wish I could take off my hat and rip off open my shirt and show my Wonder Women star blazing on my forehead and that awesome small skirt flouncing in the wind…

I have to push back the launch for later this week.

More information will be coming as soon as I can move:-)

How about a few sneak peeks though?

Welcome to just a taste of The Thoreau Collection…

The Emerson Purse made from vintage fabric.

New messenger bags.

Market bags made from vintage French linens.

Brand new Ellison Camera Bag (The outside is linen and wait until you see the gorgeous inside).

Brand new line of messenger bags made from vintage French sheets (dreamy)!

Thank you for your understanding and I can’t wait to not only show you all of our new gorgeous bags but share with you all the vintage items I brought back from France!

To make sure you are the first to know when our line is going to launch please register for our newsletter.

See you later this week with The Thoreau Collection!


Tomorrow morning starts the beautiful holiday house walk by Jennifer Rizzo.

Each day (for the whole week) you can see FOUR houses per day all dressed up for Christmas!

My house is one of the homes on Wednesday.

To start the tour you can go HERE!

Jen puts so much work into this and she has a wonderful line up of beautiful bloggers sharing their homes.

    Jeanne, I am so sad and sorry to know that you and your family have been so sick with the worst of flu. As you take good care of each other, I hope you are all well soon. Looking forward to your launch when you are feeling better.

    Oh, J! Please get better! There’s nothing worse than everyone being sick at the same time. I’m with you in the depths of illness…let’s try to fight our way back tomorrow. ???
    ps – LOVE the sneak peek!

    What an awful time for you all to be sick, not that there is any good time! Seems during the holidays we get a lil run down with all the (self-inflicted) stress and activity and are more likely to catch a bug. Hope all are well soon and up and running! Previews look Delicious!!!

    These times too make family memories. Just last week we were laughing about the memories of the week the stomach flu took us all down one at a time… each of us waiting our turn… dreading it….knowing it was coming. It’s not funny now. I know. Get well soon.

    OH you poor thing! I am so sorry to hear that your whole family has fallen prey to the flu. Don’t worry one bit about delaying the new line… ALL that matters is that you are well and rested. So take you time, get well! (however your new line of purses and bags are lovely!! so much so that I think its time i dig my fabric out and sew up a few new bags myself) Take care now!

    I hope you and the family are on the mend! No fun being sick during this wonderful holiday season.
    Until the new line comes out, I’ll find ways to keep myself busy….so I’m not drooling over the bags. πŸ™‚
