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.

Stunning Staffordshire Ware

Imagine my surprise while strolling through a 150 year old mercantile building (in a tiny town of less than 300 people) to come across this classic piece of 19th century English Staffordshire ware. What an unexpected pleasure. This rather large statue is a rare and unique presentation piece to commemorate a wedding.
Absolutely charming, features the betrothed couple on horseback with the words Going To Marrey along the base. This would make a stunning cake topper and be the piece de resistance for a true Victorian wedding.  Would also be a thoughtful one-of-a-kind anniversary, engagement or wedding gift.
