I ordered these beautiful sachets as gift favors for my baby shower. They were gorgeous, smelled great and everyone loved them. Kimberly is very sweet and helpful.

These made the perfect Mother's Day gift! The personal message on the back brought my mom to tears!
I am inspired by the grace & romance of the Victorian era. Creating for a customer's life event is an honor for me.
My Victorian and French postcard collection are how The Joyful Home was born. I had these beautiful old postcards that I had to do something with. I love that they have heartfelt, handwritten notes or a story. The fact that someone chose a particular postcard over 100 years ago to let a loved one or friend know they were thought of and loved is almost a bygone gesture. I want to preserve that and I simply love beautiful, old things with a story. This is what I want to do here for beloved customers--give them a way to preserve their memories and convey their love, gratitude or friendship with thoughtful keepsakes, gifts and favors.
I create gifts and guest favors to celebrate life events such as weddings and showers. I also create meaningful thank you, get well, cancer and sympathy support gifts-- this comes from my personal experience. Sometimes people don't know what to say or do so, that's where I can help and gladly accept custom work.
Special attention is given to every detail, down to the last little, vintage button, millinery flower, charm and stitch. Many of the fabrics I sew with are hand and machine-printed by me.
All of The Joyful Home's items are thoughtfully hand or machine-sewn and crafted by me in my home studio in historic St. Augustine, Florida--a beautiful, coastal town and America's oldest city where we have old oak trees draped in Spanish moss, palm trees and a great breeze every day.
Heartfelt thanks for stopping by! I hope you find something here that inspires you.
I live in St. Augustine, FL with my husband & sons, plus our little dogs Stella & Louie--who can often be found at my feet or under my desk while I sew. I am very grateful for the opportunity I have here at Etsy to create heartfelt gifts for others.
Foot Warmer Extraordinaire
Stella faithfully keeps my sewing foot pedal and my feet warm under my desk. Stella's primary job is to look cute--and she's quite good at it!
Louie-dog is my diligent and faithful guardian-steadfastly positioned on high-alert under my sewing desk or strategically placed at the door.
