smelled of roses. The sunshine
was like powdered gold over
the grassy hillside."

Every home naturally evolves over the years. When I was growing up most of our furniture was dark wood - mahogany, walnut, oak - warm and rich. We went from one extreme to the next incorporating white furniture with a seaside feeling, embracing the advent of 'Shabby Chic'. Eventually though my Mother realized that what she really loved was a predominantly French look of soft creams and feminine lines. Very Marie Antoinette, albeit a little less opulent. I have always been a little like a carbon copy of my Mum. We love the same things! So when we happen upon beautiful, soft, cream coloured treasures we are both equally excited!
This chair is one of a pair that my Mum and I happened upon. Love the original cream finish with the floral upholstery!
I am always experimenting with new ideas for handmade treasures. This handmade ribbon work ornament is in the Etsy shop now!
This is the smallest in a trio of nesting tables I found at an antique mall outside town. Lovely cream colour again with gold detail and painted flowers!
You can find this painted frame in my shop too!
My Mum and I both collect Limoges! We love these shallow teacups.
Lovely French Provincial dresser - a little chippy but sooooo romantic!
This Limoges Pitcher is so beautiful - it has a small flaw but who could pass it up!
Pretty china tray in cream and pink!
One of my favourite finds - a Limoges dresser tray with a pale yellow border.
