My passion, after my family of course, is Treasure Hunting. The simple beauty of things from by-gone eras have always spoken to me. Whether these treasures are found at a flea market, fine antique store, estate sale, thrift shop, or in the family attic, surprises abound.
As an interior designer, I believe it is vital to balance your decor by including found and family treasures. Surrounding yourself with things you love should always be the goal, from there you will find your true style.
As I shop, I may have a client in mind or I may want to resell at our french flea market or in my shop. I am lucky to have several outlets for my treasures including my own home! I plan to share my searching, hunting, travels, and treasures with you and encourage you to enjoy adding your treasures to your home.

Today’s treasure is a two-for-one. First, is a beautiful antique flow blue tureen from a local estate sale. This is one of those “can hold anything” items that every home should have. Second, I filled this beautiful dish with end of the season grapes from our vines at Le Potager. Pretty and flavorful, grapes straight from the vine are a true summer treasure.

I think every kitchen should have at least one piece of old, beautiful copper.

This piece will be stunning on a holiday table.
