I want you to know that it is OK if you are feeling muddled by all the bells and whistles of the new community and indeed about how to make the most of it. I am myself, and if I’m still learning, then be assured that over the next few weeks we will all find our feet together.
As I suggested when I re-opened the site two days ago, there is still much to be added before
That said, this morning I want to walk you through some of the existing features already live on the site, and a couple of those coming soon, so we are all on the same page going forward. So without further ado…
Now it’s not that I want to get all guru about my place in the community and insist that you become my follower, it is simply that if you don’t click “follow” on my profile, you won’t see all that I am going to be sharing on the Community Activity page, and more than that, you will have to keep hopping around the site from blog to groups and back again, when it is going to be entirely possible to view everything I share and create on the activity page timeline (including my personal updates, blog posts, group posts, new store items, course and salon announcements. all in one place!), so it simply makes sense to follow me if you really want to enjoy all that
Ooh and this goes for seeing the posts and community contributions from other members you are friends with or interested in too, so get into the spirit of following in the same way you might on Facebook.
Upload Your Brocante Downloads…

In your own profile you will find your own document

In a group, you will find the document
Want to remember a particular puttery treat from the calendar or a product another member recommended in a group? Simply click the pink “Notes” box in the corner of your screen and copy and paste or type what you want to remember and your note and its whereabouts will be saved on your very own Brocante Notes page.
You can then hop over to your private “my-notes” page and see and download your notes to a word document should you wish. Fab right?
Understanding the Groups
Once you have joined one of the twelve BrocanteHome groups, you will have a few options for contributing to the conversation. You can either upload your own status in the feed:
Join in an existing or start a new group discussion here….
Or respond to a post in an existing discussion, by clicking “reply” on a specific user’s post to speak to them directly, in the drop-down menu here…
Using the Calendar
At the moment the
You can visit the calendar here, or see the days events in the sidebar on the Community Activity page and you can also view each individual routine or treat by clicking on it to read more detail, and clicking the button at the very bottom of each calendar post to add it to your own calendar should you want to incorporate it in your own routine…
Ok, so I think that’s enough for one day: I don’t want to blow our brains, but before I go to feed my ever-hungry child, I just wanted to tell you that I am now in the process of moving The Salon into the new site here and eventually your courses and membership benefits will look like the sample course below and will be accessible from your own profile here at
I’m so grateful for your patience and loyalty while all this is happening and I’m so looking forward to what we will become together at
Have a lovely day won’t you?
A Year of Puttery Treats is quite the loveliest way to start your BrocanteHome journey and to understand what living life the BrocanteHome way means,
With one little domestic to-do for every day of the year, this truly is the way to add a little routine, ritual and teeny celebration to life at home...
