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.

French Tapestry Display

A little follow-up to my post from 9-10-11 on the French Tapestry I bought on my August road trip. I had a set of rod clips (that are tassels with the clip hidden up inside) and used them to hang the tapestry on a large scale black iron cafe rod. I hung the tapestry, behind the antique sofa, from an antique iron fence panel. The look is soft, eclectic and adds vintage charm to the room. This tapestry would also make a beautiful headboard. The room pictured here is one of the upstairs bedrooms at Le Potager. We call it "Lillian's room" after the woman who had the home built in 1918.  I am beginning to display some of the road trip items, like this tapestry, at LP this week and should have all the new displays set by next week.
