J.D. Charcuterie


noun \ˈtrīb\

  1. 1.

    a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader.

Finding our tribe means linking with like-minded folks sharing their best ideas, good books, edgy, exciting, anointed music, real women beauty campaigns and like-causes. Here is where I'll be listing mine.



I've just gotta say I have some TALENTED friends.  Smart business owners who make their own rules and create their own futures like a BOSS. This year I'm shopping small. But I'm getting a BIG BANG for my buck!

If YOU have a small home enterprise you'd like to promote on this website, just send me the link and a brief description and I'm on it!



marsha lee hart - color cuts & Highlights

marsha lee hart.png

Meet my friend Marsha Lee Hart. Talk about a girl with dreams!  For over a decade Marsha was driving a school bus (affectionately known as "The Big Cheese"). She worked after hours from her West End home salon and dreamed of a time when her business would be her life. Now, Marsha's dream was more than a full-time salon business. She planned her DREAM HOME, believed God for her DREAM GUY, and expanded her vision of a DREAM SALON to include a DREAM BOUTIQUE, where she would sell merchandise and support other entrepreneurs. She wanted her place to feel like a comfortable, kick-off-your-shoes, relax, and be pampered family home. With complimentary coffee and hot tea tucked into its own little nook, her clients sip and relax on cushy sofas and chairs, while Rocco, Security Dog, guards and supervises the clientele. And with lots of prayers and hard work, guess what? DREAMS COME TRUE.

Marsha's DREAM SALON & BOUTIQUE is hosted in her DREAM HOME in Montpelier, where she and her DREAM GUY reside. Come see! She's the best! My personal stylist! You'll be blessed.

made by megan -- t-shirt Blankets


Meet my friend Megan Tatum Miller. Megan got the idea to make her first t-shirt blanket the summer she turned 20.  Megan wanted to find a way to turn her old clothes into something other than a pile in the back of her closet. 

When she made her own blanket, Megan discovered there was so much leftover t-shirt material that most people probably throw away. She turned the extra material into a "one for one" passion project and made a blanket for the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU.  For every blanket that is ordered through this small business, at least one blanket is donated to the hospital. 


The Powhatan Card Lady -- handmade greeting cards


Several years ago I invited my baby sister, Susan Pfeiffer, to attend a Stampin' Up Party and lo and behold she found her niche! Over the years she has become skilled in handmade card creations of all sorts! She keeps her prices reasonable (although I am forever encouraging her to increase the price -- knowing the time she takes with each one)


Compared to Hallmark, she's hands down better. And for around the same price. Incredible deal. Shop for all occasions.  Find her on Facebook at Powhatan Card Lady. Message her for Christmas cards. 

Check out her sale site here: powhatancardlady
