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.

Fantastic day at the Flea

Today was a great day at the antique flea market in the old orange grove which is now on the college grounds. The weather was beautiful, in the low 80's, warm and dry, a far cry from the rain that was predicted. 
 The hope was to find a few things I am "looking for" but as we all know, especially when looking for antiques, all bets are off.  It happens that, as a shop keeper, and flea market vendor and on-line auction seller, I can be open to a wide variety of treasures when I shop.
Today's treasures were unique, charming and nice quality items. I will be sharing some of the individual items as the week progresses. 
Silver, French enamel, English stoneware and vintage glass are among the loot.
