The crew here inside CHARTREUSE has been diligently working to make sure this year’s show is better than ever! We’ve added so many new items for you to choose from! And the line up of guests this year promises to blow you away with the unique selection of gifts! We have every kind of gift you can imagine for … friends, family, kids, pets…. and even HIM! From the gift of luxury and art to the gift of health and well being…WE GOT YA COVERED! You don’t want to miss this! Come thirsty and hungry….. and ready to BE MERRY!!!
As an artist and a designer I’m always finding new ways to express myself. This year I’ve had some time to play around and make some really cool jewelry and have even sold a few pieces!
A few years ago…. like 13… there was some rap song that said “B”… referring to bitch. It quickly grew into our universal name for all co-workers! Hey, B! To this day… there’s a whole group of us who still call each other “B”! It’s turned into a sweet term of endearment though. No longer reserved for bitches… but rather a loved one; a reference to one of our tribe or crew members!
I’ve carried the nickname, B, Plan B, Queen B and even Sting… back in the day when my hair was cut like the wrestler… and I was young and free and dancing around like a BEE!
Most recently, I had my ex decide to be mean and nasty to me again!!! In a text I was called the “C” word, the “B” word and “Sting”… I politely signed my response with a cute little honey bee… he replied… “yes, you are the QUEEN BEE”!!!! LOL!!!
So without giving you all the details… and because my posible “tell all” book and “polygraph party” are each titled…. QUEEN B!!! Here’s the tidbit I promised you behind the name of my new jewelry line!
I don’t have time to deal with mean ex’s on the level in which they deserve (I only have one…. the rest are cool)…. AND NEITHER DO YOU!!!! So instead, take the talent that God gave you… turn the negative into a positive! You can’t get back the time or money they stole… But you can grow… and make more money off an idea that was created by the positive spin you took… by their negative actions!!!!
HERE’S TO THE “QUEEN B’S” OF THE WORLD!!!!! GO GET YOURS! And if you know a Queen B who could use some support or encouragement…. share this story and hopefully it will “sting” just enough to motivate them to do the same thing!
PEACE, LOVE and HONEY (money) … LOL
In case you hadn’t seen the news on our facebook page….. The Phoenix of Richmond has joined us for the holidays with an amazing Pop Up Shoppe inside Chartreuse!
We’re very excited about this new venture!!! As most of you know, it’s been a dream of mine to add a boutique inside Chartreuse. After a year of trying to juggle the making of this dream…. between design, furniture and art…. I came to the realization that it’s another full time job that needs total focus! So…. I turned to a pro!
I have some very exciting news about the new space we just moved into. I finally have the space to do whatever I want and it’s happening! Stay tuned for next big article on a very talented artist who will be joining us on this new journey…. HINT: There will be art classes taking place inside Chartreuse…. and those classes will be designed for you and your friends to enjoy in a private group setting with food and wine and fun!
Check out and LIKE our facebook page to stay in the know!

We’re so excited about our 3rd Annual Holiday Show this year
I love mixing pieces like this. The top is a really old, hand made hutch. The bottom is an antique farm table made from old bead board. Both are about 100 years old; made by different people; from different parts of the country….. now working beautifully together.
I think it’s important for your work space to be inspirational and fun. A place were you can sit and enjoy being there.
This set up would also be a great alternative to a traditional hutch with china or collections of mixed pottery on display. It could be a great vanity or powder room piece with towels and such too!
We often have clients come in and see a piece they like…. but they’re not sure how or where to use it in their home. The staff at Chartreuse is very helpful when it comes to these questions and I do a lot of consults in and out of the shoppe. However, there are times when a client doesn’t speak up and ask the questions out loud. So……… I’ve spent many hours going thru my mags, Pinterest, books, etc. and found tons of photos using the items we have “in house” here at Chartreuse.
Most everything we have in the shoppe is one-of-a-kind, so the photos are examples of similar pieces. We also want our clients to use this board as inspiration for a custom piece they may want us to build. And, don’t forget… you may have a piece at home that is similar……… and you’re tired of it….. so the board may give you an idea of how to make your old piece NEW!
