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.

Hold the Wine

When you set a beautiful table it's the details that add personality. Whether you are serving wine, champagne or mineral water, a "wine coaster" provides both form and function. The coaster protects your linens and table while adding another layer to compliment your table setting.
I was lucky enough to find several vintage wine coasters on my buying trip this month. My favorite is the hammered copper coaster with embossed fleur de lis. Remember, don't put them away after dinner, they look beautiful on the bar cabinet. Alternative use? How about a pretty holder for the olive oil!
