It was such a fascinating experience to watch all the creative designer/geniuses at work & then to couple that with the bounty of decor & décorative accessories that had been brought in, just for this event - It was truly Ooh La La to the max everywhere you looked!
With so much talent & so much amour under one roof -
we didn’t want the day to end!
Azucar’s decadently dangerous, red velvet cupcakes were most defini a hit out of the culinary ballpark!
Let’s just say that no one can stop at one!
If you weren’t able to make it - We have beautiful,
time-worn & hand-crafted objects coming in daily
just for vous…Fabulous finds waiting to grace your
maison et jardin.
Here comes spring mes amies -
right around the corner

Our enchanting Petit Trunk Show on Valentine’s Day features the uber talented, design duo of Janice Joseph & Barbara Lunger; the forces behind the exquisitely beautiful collection, that is - “Bijoux Redux”.
Vignettes is honored to debut Bijoux Redux to the monde & on Valentine’s Day, they will unveil their charming new line of 14K gold & sterling silver love tokens for an exclusive first look.
Translated from French, Bijoux (bee zhoo), refers to a “delicate trinket”, a small jewel or ornamental object & Redux (ree duks), describes something “revived” or brought back, especially in being restored to former importance or prominence.
In this spirit, antique collectors & jewelry designers, Janice & Barbara have created a collection of custom jewelry joining beloved, sentimental items from the past with equally treasured & valued elements from the present.
The antique & vintage, 14k & sterling silver elements; lockets, charms, coins, crosses, medals & fobs presented in this collection are thoughtfully gathered, designed & fabricated into one-of-a-kind: Necklaces, Bracelets & Earrings.
In their revived form, these unique pieces are once again destined to become treasured tokens of love & true sentimental objects of affection.
We hope you’ll join us for this Tres Magnifique, Petite Trunk Show & meet the talented design duo behind Bijoux Redux.
Janice & Barbara prove that vintage style iconicity & soaring talent are an irresistible combination.

Robin Reynolds Mckeirnan of
I’ve known her for over twenty years & whenever we’d run into each other around town she was always working on one fabulous project or another, or just finishing a photo shoot of her work for one of the major magazines.
Then, finally, the moon & the stars aligned & she officially came on board here at the shop, &, drum roll please, she is now designing our front windows! Ta-Dah! Mademoiselle has arrived!
She specializes in custom couture sewing for the home & her work is part genius, part Edith Head & ultimately – luxe, fabric fantasies made to order that beautifully adorn the maison. Her work exudes refined detailing, old world craftsmanship & bespoke tailoring at every corner. From linen, burlap & French ticking to haute couture satin & dupioni silks, she takes fabric on a magically creative, millinery carpet ride that transforms it into high-style fashion for every room of the house.
Her rich, on-trend repertoire includes:
Pillows in every style imaginable; hand-screened, silk-screened & monogramed; Complete ensemble bedding for the ultimate boudoir; Window treatments from elaborate ballroom to stylized European; Fabric headers, valances & headboards; & Slipcovers extraordinaire, tout avec a sophisticated twist of piping, pleating, edging, layering or that red hot look of can-can ruffles.
I think it’s safe to say that if you can dream it, she can create it for you!
We hope you’ll come & meet her at our Valentine Soiree on
Sunday, February 14 th,
& any time you’re in the area, be sure & check out her fabuleux, themed, front window displays…
There’s toujours millinery magique a voici!
