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.

Our Shop's Annual Team Dinner

It has become an annual event that we all look forward to... our team dinner. At Le Potager we are only successful because we are lucky enough to be surrounded by really wonderful people. Now in our 13th year, we have created a tradition of sharing an evening to celebrate the year ending and the new year ahead. It is our small way of thanking our Le Potager family for all of their hard work.
 For years our dinners was held in local restaurants. They were nice however, the meals seemed rushed, we were unable to move around to talk to everyone and it never felt as special as we wanted it to. With that in mind, a few years ago when we were planning yet another team dinner, we were having a hard time finding a location that was just right. It finally dawned on us- let's have our dinner in the shop. Yes, in the shop... we can take our time, move around to talk with everyone and the ambiance will be just right.
Our decor for the table this year was layers of fresh magnolia branches, cedar, pomegranates and antique statuary. Added china, crystal and candlelight for a rich, beautiful look.
This was the fourth annual team dinner held inside the shop. I cherish the memories of our celebrations and am most thankful to be able to spend time with our special friends- off the clock.
As seen in the first photo, I made the place cards once again. This year I used photos of the Eiffel Tower, I took on our fall trip, made into magnets and held up with wine corks... just fun!
Team Le Potager.
Fabulous friends celebrating our history and our bright future. Thank you one and all.
We enjoy these evenings so much that we decided to have this dinner twice a year from now on.

I will be flea marketing this weekend in Hollywood. Will share my treasures with you next time.
Happy Hunting!
