NOVEMBERWe welcome November and all that comes with it. Cooler weather, leaves changing colors and a whisper that the holiday season is near. It’s not just the sweater weather that we love.

We love that you come in just to say hello, sit and visit with us too.
We are continuing to stock the boutique with all things fall & winter.

We just passed the Spring equinox, and it has me reflecting on what is coming ahead - but still wanting to be in the here and now. So, I wanted to share a few things that are making me happy in the current moment. I narrowed it down to 6, seems like a good number 😊
1. My Brazeau Tricot sweaters. All of them. The tissue weight for those few days that have gotten into the 60’s and the regular cashmere for just about every other day. They have become my uniform. New spring cashmere pieces should be arriving any day now. I promise to keep you posted!
2. Atomic Habits by James Clear. I stared reading this in December on a trip to the beach. I put it to the side during the rush of the holidays and forgot about it. Then, while on a trip to the north Georgia mountains, with no WiFi and no cell service I started reading it again. It has inspired me to take action to create a better me. I love this quote “Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become” Now that’s some serious food for thought.
3. I’m listening to a playlist that my dear friend Natalie made me called *Sweet Trish D* it makes me happy and want to turn up the volume. I’ve made it shareable here I hope you like it!
4. Did you know in Argentina people eat gnocchi on the 29th of each month for good luck? I didn’t either! But don’t wait til then to try this yummy gnocchi by Cappello’s - its gluten free, dairy free and grain free! You can find it at my favorite local health food market Nature's Own. I’m loving it with everything - classic marinara, with EVOO and roasted veggies, it's perfect with just about anything!
5. My new skillet. I know, you’re saying skillet? Yep, I sure am. This thing is awesome. Dr. Mark Hyman recommend it in one of his emails, and I LOVE it! It is non-stick, comes with a steamer insert and a wooden spoon with a built in spoon rest on the handle.
6. It took me awhile to break away from my super rich The Balm by Sorella, but Michelle and Lyndsey at Donna Lane Day Spa talked me into trying this and I’m ready to switch! It the Game Changer moisturizer -Flawless AF. It’s not as thick ( read: hard to smooth on) but gives that same super luxurious feeling.
That’s it for now. I hope you enjoy and maybe find a new favorite thing or two. Leave a comment below if there is something you are loving that I should try!
I can remember when I first met Almira Armstrong. I had just opened PATRICIA and was looking for a signature fragrance line for the store. I was immediately drawn to Almira and her beautiful, and beautifully scented line of candles.Since then LUMIRA has anchored our collection of candles and perfumes. The fragrances are always clean and lend a luxurious feeling to lighting a candle. Her elegant, black glass vessels are not only beautiful, but can be recycled easily to hold anything from pencils to makeup brushes. A few years ago, she introduced perfume oils and just recently Parfum in two of her most popular scents. Cuban Tobacco & Arabian Oud. Still, to this day, when I light a Cuban Tobacco candle, I am transported back to our small shop on Pennsylvania Avenue. It is one of my favorites and always brings back good memories.I have recently started meditating and lighting POJ's relax incense each morning. I love it so much, I reached out to the Japanese company located in Kyoto andthey have agreed to let us stock their beautiful incense!
One of our newest finds: Incense from Japanese company POJ Studio. Coming soon to PATRICIAThe Power of Scent:How scents can transform your interiors and your mood.
Because the olfactory nerve is directly linked to the area of the brain that accesses memory recall, mood, and emotions – scent is then very closely tied to memory. Because of this, what smells good to you may not necessarily smell good to another person.
Scent as part of Wellness:
"Scent can be incorporated into so much of your daily wellness routine. Incense has been used for thousands of years in ceremonies and rituals, especially in meditation practices. The simple act of lighting incense can help ground during your morning meditation or Movement practices such as yoga."
"There is nothing quite like the sheer amount of time we now spend indoors to make us think of how our spaces can affect our energy. The light through our window can lift our mood. A view can bring us a sense of calm or conversely energise us. We can find joy through the objects we fill our home with. And we all know the effects of mess and clutter on our mental capacity. But what about scent? As equally as objects can alter our mood so too can smells. The power of scent can transform our energy and transport us to another time and place."
Come see us and let us help you discover which scents transport you to a beautiful, calm place 🖤
Set a beautiful table...every night and enjoy the closing of each day.
If there is one thing that we strive to create in our shop it’s that feeling of loving your surroundings, your life. We seek out things that give us pleasure with the hope of passing them on to our customers to enjoy as well.

“Creating a beautiful meal for those we love (ourselves included) and finessing an environment to share are at the core of what I do. Not only because I am a people-pleaser at heart, but also because of the emotion and connection surrounding that shared experience. It is never one or the other, food or design. For me, they are synonymous. Beauty elevates the ordinary–– I will always hold this statement to be gospel.” Athena Calderone
It’s lighting a luxurious candle, the ritual of taking care of your skin, setting a beautiful table, opening that special bottle of wine on a Tuesday night, adorning yourself with that special piece of clothing or those one of a kind earrings...
I’m going for the same basics every night: simple, yet unique platters and plates from HAAND, my favorite Juliska glasses and linen napkins. The real pleasure of setting a table lies not in the individual pieces, but in seeing how these diverse and unmatched elements come together for a truly dramatic presentation. Our simple recipes - often utilizing only two or three ingredients and simply roasted - take on an elegantly exaggerated importance. I find it’s effortless to pull off a dinner with a few friends (special thanks to my husband, Jarrett!), it’s much easier knowing I have all the necessary elements to make us and most importantly, our guests, feel like they’re sharing a very special moment together. So what if it’s just a Tuesday night?
Our natural linen napkins bring us tactile pleasure at every meal, and with our carefully curated collection of Ripple platters, plates and bowls from HAAND, our table comes together effortlessly, the velvety, hand glazed settings capturing a mood that is relaxed but refined.
Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish word that is a feeling or mood that comes taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, every day moments more meaningful, beautiful or special. Personal style surrounds you, and should extend to all those objects that intersect your busy
