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.

Vintage Painted Tumblers

If you asked me before the flea market if I would be purchasing a set of wood tumblers I would have laughed. When I think of wood drinking cups I think of Danish teak or island bamboo not California redwood. However, that is exactly what I purchased at Sunday's flea market and I am so taken with them.
This set of 6 tumblers dates from the 1930's or 40's.  Each was hand-painted and signed by well known artist George Reinbold. 
 This set would be a wonderful addition to the bar in a study or on the shelves of a library. I am so happy to be using these charming vessels for our upcoming "Settings" event at Le Potager. They will be part of our European woodland style holiday table.
These tumblers are indeed a wonderful treasure as a set but they would also be wonderful gifts individually. Consider filling unique vessels like these with chocolates, nuts, pens & pencils or even cash for a special holiday gift.
