Introducing Patricia Rose

I would like to introduce you to a friend of mine and share a lovely shop:



Patricia Rose: A Potpourri of Fabric, Fragrance and Findings is a dream come true for Patricia Morello. The idea of opening a small shop has been a goal for many years. Sewing, crafting and herbs have always played an important part in her life. Now she has been able to bring them all together in her online boutique, http://www.patriciarose-apotpourri.com/. You may also visit her Little Pink Boutique at Make Mine Pink.

From the time she was a young girl, she enjoyed sewing and crafting. Her first attempts at being an entrepreneur were selling loop potholders in the summer to all the neighbors on her block. They were very supportive and she wove her fingers raw every vacation. Her grandmother taught her to embroider, she learned sewing in Home Economics and crocheting from her grandmother-in-law. She learned how to weave and enjoy that as well. Gardening has been a hobby for years. Learning about herbs and their uses has been an ongoing education.

She has brought all these loves together in Patricia Rose. She wants to share her love of herbs and the joy they bring to her with everyone. It is so lovely to have a signature fragrance for your home. She likes the idea that her grandchildren will smell certain flowers or spices, take a deep breath and say, “Nana, that smells like your house.” Sachets and fragranced pillows are the ultimate in luxury for her. Patricia says, “I love being able to rest my head on my own scented pillows and relieve a headache!
I love going out into the garden, picking a little of this and a little of that to make the most delicious ‘tisane’ (a tea of mixed ingredients). I love being able to pick the perfect flavoring for the night’s meal. These are the joys I want to share with everyone.”

Welcome to the world of Patricia Rose-- A Potpourri of Fabric, Fragrance and Findings and a dream come true for Patricia Morello.
