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.

Book 'Em

Antique silver repousse

blue leather volumes.

I took a series of photos at Le Potager today showing a few of my new treasures. I know a wonderful retired antique dealer who drops by a few times per year to show me items she has uncovered in her packed warehouse. 
Today, she brought me some absolutely beautiful antique books. I love to use books in vignettes at the store and at home as well. They are interesting, colorful, and unique ways to vary heights in displays. Try this with books you have at home.

Using books with
themed titles can be fun!
