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.

A Real Ringer

A treasure from my road trip... victorian silver napkin rings.  Napkin rings... they aren't just for napkins anymore!  I love to use antique napkin rings as pedestals for seasonal items on tables, mantels and shelves.
Summer is shells, as pictured. Fall is mini orange and white pumpkins. Winter is pine cones and red glass ball ornaments. Spring is Easter eggs.  Of course they are also a welcome addition to your table setting when holding pretty napkins. 
It's the small details that will always set your decor apart from others. Be creative!
