A Few Changes.... and a Jeanne Oliver Designs Camera Bag Giveaway


Hello!
I hope you are all enjoying your week.
I recently rearranged my girls' room....
and my sons' room....
For the most part I shopped my own home...
Here is a sneak peek of the girls' room....


and the boys' room.
I have been playing musical furniture .......
This drives everyone crazy in the house.
However the kids are very happy with how their rooms turned out : ) ... 
I hope to photograph their rooms and share them on my blog after the fair is over....

On another note.....
I have a special giveaway for you today....


Jeanne Oliver has been so kind to sponsor a very generous giveaway for my readers.
Jeanne is giving away one of her Ellison Camera Bags to one lucky reader.....
Jeanne is one of those girls that is blessed with many talents.
I happen to own one of the Ellison Camera Bags and love it....



My daughter Bethany loves it too...
It is a beautiful camera bag...
The Ellison not only holds your camera, but can also double as a purse.
Thank you Jeanne for sponsoring such a generous giveaway....

I also wanted to share Jeanne's interview she did with me a couple of months ago.
I found Jeanne's interview to be very inspiring and really wanted to share it again,
in case any of you missed it.

Here it is....


Tell us a little bit about Jeanne Oliver Designs? 

First of all I would like to thank you for having me share on your beautiful site.  You inspire so many on your blog.  You truly have a beautiful gift for styling and photography.

Jeanne Oliver Designs started as A Bushel and a Peck.  "A Bushel and a Peck" is the title of a song that my mom used to sing to us when we were little.  A little over three years ago I began selling on Etsy.  I sold little things that I had been making for gifts and also began including little girl clothes.  I giggle a little when I look back at the beginning.  There was no direction...but I am so proud of myself that I started.  Starting is hard and scary.  I love looking back at those first images because I can see very clearly how far I have come.  Just recently did I restructure my business and rename it Jeanne Oliver Designs.


How would you describe your design style?

I have to admit this one is hard for me.  There have been so many design inspirations in my life.  I have loved vintage fashion for as long as I can remember.  Between old movies and fashion magazines I was always sketching the images that I was seeing from a young age.  I want my designs to be feminine, full of detail, vintage grace, authentic and comfortable.  I want my bag to be your favorite bag.  I want my dresses to be the one you reach for when you want to be comfortable and look beautiful.  Livable vintage...is that even a word???lol


What type of items can we expect to find while shopping at Jeanne Oliver Designs?

You will find pretty.  You will find jewelry embellished with vintage treasures.  You will find totes detailed with vintage buttons and fabrics.  You will find dresses with attention to the details.  You will always find the old blended with the new....I hope that never changes.


What is the name of your new summer collection?



What was the inspiration behind your Town and Country Collection?

Last summer I spent two amazing weeks in France.  The first part of my trip was in the south of France staying at the most incredible chateau.  We had daily excursions to flea markets, old villages and millinery.  Our days were lazy and indulgent.  We were catered to and lavished.  I found myself walking the incredible grounds on different occasions just in awe of the beauty of the countryside and the stillness.  There were fields of sunflowers and old, wrinkly men that fit perfectly in the country landscape. The men were so deliciously French looking that it was almost painful when I couldn't take their photograph.  At night I slept with my shutters open so I could feel the breeze and hear the rain.  It was pure perfection.......until I got off the train in Paris.

Paris!  The cab ride from the train station to our hotel had me almost in tears.  I can't even explain it.  Loveliness all around. It was too much beauty to take in.  But it was not the natural beauty of the French countryside...it was man made and breathtaking.  It was architecture, cafes, activity, sounds, church bells ringing, crowds, art.

In each setting I found perfection.  How could I choose one over the other?  The one brought peace and contentment and the other made me feel alive.


Do you have a favorite piece from the new summer collection?  

My favorite piece of the new line is the Mary Kate peasant dress.  I love the vintage feed sack on each one.  


I also love the Sadie purse.  That vintage fabric is so incredible and I wish I could have bought a million yards of it!  


Was it hard to create your own look book?

Honestly, I am just stubborn.  I am not the most computer savvy gal, but with a little trial and error (and a few tears) I put it together.  I didn't have the time to do one and even my husband was questioning the importance with so many other things to tend to.  We both agree now that it is the best thing we could have done for this line.  I love it and I am so proud of it.  I took all of the photos and the models were gorgeous and really showcase my clothes beautifully.  The most important part is that the lookbook tells the story that I wanted it to tell.  

Click on the picture below to view Jeanne's inspiring look book....


b>



For someone who is just starting a business, would you recommend starting out on etsy or getting your own .com?

Definitely start on Etsy.  Etsy has been amazing to me and truly gave me the time to figure myself and my style out.  A dot com is the next step when you have a following.  I will still continue to use Etsy though because customers find me on accident all of the time.   It is a wonderful tool.


What do you enjoy most about owning an online shop?

About a month ago I was at an event and a woman came up to me and expressed that she is so inspired by the women of my generation and the businesses we have been able to create.  She said that she wasn't able to do that when she was raising her children and now wishes she would have made more time for her creative gifts.  I can make the time because of the internet and an online shop.  I don't have to have a brick and mortar shop...I would never have time for that.  My shop doesn't reach my town....I can access the world. Pretty amazing.  What I enjoy most about owning an online shop is the possibilities!








Thank you Jeanne!

Don't forget Jeanne is giving away the Ellison Camera Bag today on my blog, and if you would like
to enter please leave a comment on this post.....

I hope you all have a great week!
Take Care,
Maria

I actually have had my eye on this camera bag for a couple of months, but I just haven't had the financial means to make it happen. This camera bag is by far the prettiest one out there. I spent hours looking online for one, and this one is the BEST! If I don't win, it's definitely going on my Christmas wishlist.

Such a generous giveaway. Thank you, Jeanne!

Hi Maria, you and I have a mutual friend, actually several but Aimee Peterson is who I am thinking of. I was hoping to get to meet in person at the book signing, so we will have to wait for another opportunity. I think it is so great that your family participates in the fair, reminds me of my up bringing in the country and washing goats with my best friend Ha! Your giveaway looks delightful, I love Jenne's designs. Thanks and enjoy the fair! ~ Jacque

I love this post! I read your blog and Jeanne's and I am so excited for this giveaway! I have been wanting one of her bags for a long time and have been waiting until I return to teaching this year to get one. Thank you both for being such inspiring ladies!
