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.

Eclectic Treasures

As promised, photos from our flea market shopping sunday. This is the most eclectic group of treasures. I bought things that were interesting and unique, things that I knew I could use at Le Potager either for display or for sale.
The original focus for this outing was to find holiday items well, I did not find any holiday specific items. However, I will fill the red enamel French lavabo with large stems of holly during the holidays.
The English stirrup cups on the chair will be part of our "settings" events in November & December.
I was especially thrilled to find these 1920's and 1930's poultry and fall gardening ribbons. The English elk platter and plate will help set the theme in the woodland room antique display cabinet. The violin is for the musical Christmas tree along with a few other instruments we purchased on Sunday.
It was a good outing and in just hours we will start setting these, and many of the items from my August trip, out in Le Potager.  The L.P. Autumn open house is this Saturday- so much to do. Looking very forward to the event.
