The face behind Everlasting Designs is Mother to a beautiful little boy, adopted at birth, who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (autism) and ADHD at the age of three, some years ago. Life as we knew it was turned on end shortly thereafter.

Prior to our *special needs* lifestyle, I painted, collaged, drank wine, philosophized and managed a small antique/collectibles website and online store. During lunch at my real, mortgage-paying job I trolled local venues for wares to stock my store...Life was good.

Life is still good but drastically reinvented.

While the creativity still flows it has taken on a different face out of necessity. You can't really staunch the need to create but rather have to let it eek out its own personality. It does and it did.

Writing has taken the place of brush and canvas; it takes up less space, is non-messy and can be done anywhere. And what better way to gain instant gratification than a blog.

The need to have a more ordered, zen, less schtuff-filled life became a need also. A mass exodus of boxes leaving for other homes filled me with great calm and joy for reasons not quite known to me. Mimimalism: the absence of tchotchkes and superfluous decor is simply peaceful.

That way of living is what we would like to expand, theorize and discuss here. Let us know if you have any topics you would like to see developed.

In the South of France, near the foothills of the Alps, there is a land where herbs and flowers abound.
The air is clear and the country life is simple.
This is Provence... in Provence everything is influenced by these herbs and flowers - from the fresh Rosemary in their cuisine to the petals blended in their perfumes.
It is now easier to understand why the Proven├žal way of health and beauty is commonly based on the ancient art of aromatherapy - the use of specially selected essential oils extracted from plants for the purposes of homeopathic medicine and spiritual balance.
These yummy French products reflect this ancient art. Produced in France from a rich base of vegetable oils.
