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.

Trinket Treasure

I found this lovely, tiny trinket box at a funky little "junktique" shop. I was taken by the subject matter, material and the age of this two piece ceramic treasure. It looks like many of the Staffordshire pieces I have and has great vintage charm. I figured I would take these three sisters home with me.
It was at that point, when I had decided I would purchase the box, that I looked at the bottom. Searching for a makers mark, of which most Staffordshire pieces do not have, I found something even better...
Yes, one U.S. dollar!!  SOLD...I love a deal like this, something I was going to buy because I loved it and then it has an unbelievable price, that is a winning combination.  This is the deal-o-the-road-trip!!!
