Bonjour and merci!

The purpose of this blog is two-fold. It was the eventual next stop for caroline joy, my business where I create and sell fabric home furnishings, accessories and gifts. A website is just around the corner, but I felt a little more comfortable getting my feet wet in blogville.

So get ready for some shameless self-promotion, information on my upcoming shows, photos of my wares, and ideas you can use in your own home.

But more importantly, I wanted to use this blog as a forum for my fellow "domestic goddesses". For anyone who has been to one of my shows or bought my work, you know I cater to women and try to celebrate the domestic goddess in all of us gals.

We have a lot of insight to offer, and we don't need to be celebrities to be heard. Don't get me wrong! I'm an annual People magazine subscriber, gush over the gowns at all the awards shows, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the "Real Housewives" reality series. But is it really necessary for someone to have 15 minutes (or more) of fame to dole out advice?

I have a bunch of girlfriends (plus a mom and three sisters!) who have special areas of expertise, boundless opinions, and hands-on experience that they would love to share. I will regularly share their tips, tidbits, advice and points-of-view on all kinds of topics, so we all can grow and learn as domestic goddesses.

So check back with caroline joy home regularly to see my new caroline joy creations. Share it with your friends. More importantly, come back and gather some "sage wisdom" from a great collection of women, so you can create a serene home and life for yourself.

I hope you enjoy the blog and thank you for stopping by. Merci!
