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.

Farewell to a Family Treasure

How does one thank a dog for 16 years of unconditional love?
How do you thank her for teaching your children how to be loving and kind?
How do you say thank you for being such a big part of the family?
For putting up with the silly things we asked her to do?
Can you place a value on seeing her sleeping with the kids?
How about for playing hockey for hours with the boys and being the best defensemen of all?
Or how she greeted each of us when we came home, everyday, for sixteen years?
There are just not enough words to express my thanks.
I am so sad that she is gone.
My heart hurts to think she will not be here to greet me tomorrow or the next day.
However, I am so grateful that she was here for as long as she was. 
Farewell my special girl, we will miss you so.
Our Molly... aka "miss molly" "molly tamale"

  3. Oh Jennifer! I am such a ditz. I saw your side panel with Le Potage and I thought, who is this person? So I went to the top....and surprise. It makes your lose more personal when I know someone. I am so sorry. Paula
