Artisan, Dreamer

Elevate the Everyday

1037 Fort Thomas Avenue, Fort Thomas, KY

What a wonderful mantra, motto, and philosophy for positive living. I, however, cannot take credit for such a fabulous phrase. There is a lovely entrepreneur in Fort Thomas, KY that has braved a new venture called French 75 Boutique with the goal of bringing unique selections of living, gifting, and celebrating into the lives of local and online shoppers.

How blessed I am to have met Loretta. We first found out about each other when she saw something of mine on Etsy. Making things happen, as I do, I reached out to her and she bravely hopped onto my journey, and is allowing me to tag along on hers. We are two small businesses (mine being infinitely smaller) choosing to let our different paths overlap…at the mercy of emails, texts, and USPS.

Loretta goes above and beyond to give credit to artisans via both Facebook and Instagram. It is my sincerest hope that we can one day meet so I can simply thank her for the many small taps of encouragement she has given to me in such a short time. We are just folks with big hearts and even bigger dreams.

As Loretta and I discuss product best suited for her boutique, I’ve decided to create jewelry that can be found exclusively at French 75. Of course, my little etsy shop Dusty Charm Designs is continually renewed with fanciful designs, as well. Each shop has its own unique ambiance. With its name based on a cocktail (see recipe below), French 75 is a fresh boutique with selections provided by designers that by no means mass produce in Amazon fashion. If your fortunate enough to visit her shop, you surely won’t find her offerings elsewhere in neighboring shops. She offers bar ware, textiles, home decor, and much more. On the other hand, My Dusty Charm Designs touts itself with unique selections that are full whimsy, nature, and magic. The following DCD items can be found at French 75 Boutique!

I would like to thank Loretta and French 75 Boutique for friendship and professionalism. Click here to read more about this fabulous small business with big dreams!

The following pics give you a glimpse of our product relationship to date, along with various other items available at French 75 Boutique. Here’s to much more success for both of us!

Here is a recipe I found for French 75. Definitely seems worth a try!

1 ounce Gin (I prefer Tanqueray), 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice, 1/2 ounce simple syrup, 3 ounces champagne, lemon twist for garnish. Combine gin, syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into an iced champagne glass. Top up with Champagne. Stir gently. Garnish.
