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 Homes Along the Way

It has been a whirlwind of very productive shopping throughout the Normandy countryside. Here is a quick view of a few of the beautiful homes, both public and private, that we have been fortunate enough to visit along the way to our many shopping destinations. 
 Of course, Giverny, Claude Monet's Home & Gardens. The weather was perfect and gardens were full and colorful.
 An absolutely gorgeous Normandy Chateau with beautiful old growth trees. 
A wonderful country home, now restaurant, where we enjoyed an incredible meal.
The stately and stunning Chateau d'Emallville. Our home away from home while in Normandy.
And of course, last but not least, the absolutely lovely French Country Home of our most gracious host, Sharon Santoni. We were treated to an evening of great food, wine, conversation and much laughter with Sharon and her family. Our deepest thanks to them and especially to Sharon for the countless hours of preparation that went into making certain this weekend was perfect. 
To Sharon... merci beaucoup and cheers!!!
Watch for the next post showing the charming villages and shops that we have been shopping in.
Happy hunting!

  2. Looks like the architecture equalled the antique shopping. A fabulous trip from the looks of it. I've enjoyed travelling along with you and Sharon, who's been posting about it too.

  3. Thank you Jen for posting your lovely pictures, don't fred's dogs look wonderful in front of the chateau?!
