Moving into new space is so much fun....

by Jane Guerin


I am loving my new additional space, which is dedicated to consultations only. At least at this point, it's dedicated to consultations leaving the other side of my space for design work, storing flowers in cooler, supplies, etc. It's wonderful! I've had 4 meetings in the new space, even though we are still moving things in and spiffing it up.

Just a little history about my building....it was built in 1826 as a physician's office. It is two separate spaces divided by a wall in the center with a door for passing through. It's really charming, and I love that it has stood the test of time, so far. Just think, it was standing during the Civil War, which raged in Fredericksburg! It is so solid, I know it's going to be around for a long time. It's been a physician's office (back in the day) a lawyer's office and an architect and accountant's office. Now it houses Jane Guerin, flowers! Boy if those walls could talk!

Take a look at my black accent wall. Everything else is white/neutral!

I have moved in my ribbon cabinet and a display cabinet. I may offer some very sought after items that I used to sell in my former retail shop. I'm still working on the logistics of that and on the logistics of offering "special" flowers by the stem. These flowers will be different from grocery store flowers in so many ways. As I said, I'm still working on the logistics......

Both of these cabinets were hand made by a fellow who sells his furniture in antique markets across the country. I got them in Atlanta. The doors are old windows. I love things with a story.....I'm Southern. what can I say?

I'll post pictures when we finish! Until then, I'm just enjoying not falling all over other designers or helpers in the shop! Yay!!!
