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.

Happy Memorial Day

As time passes, I have come to appreciate the real significance of our holidays.
This weekend being Memorial Day here in the U.S. it is more than just a three day weekend. It is a time to honor those who gave their lives defending our country or our allies.
I have many family members who served in our military, almost all U.S. Marines, serving in WWII, the Korean War and Afghanistan, respectfully. I am very thankful they returned home however I know too many of their friends did not. To those lost and to their families I say thank you!
Happy Memorial Day! The official start of the summer season!
Now, go and enjoy a wonderful three day weekend in their honor!
Happy Hunting!  ~Jen

  1. Happy Memorial Day, Jen. We don't have this weekend in Canada but had a long weekend last week in honour of Queen Victoria. I think a whole weekend honouring the armed services is a terrific idea. We seem to roll it into Rememberance Day on November 11th.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love to hear from fellow bloggers. Let me know what you think about my treasures or share a treasure of your own. Happy hunting!
