Finding A Home Around The House


A few more of my favorite things are finding homes around the house.
During the big purge I'm only keeping things that I dearly, dearly love.
With a less cluttered look in mind, I got rid of all my butter pats!
Yes, I did!
Wow! It feels so good.


This vignette is inspired by this lovely Ma Premiere Commonion that I got from my dear friend in France.
It's dated June 1885 and has the most wonderful staining!
The berries are from my dear friend in Texas.


It seems like the French make things so lovely!
I love any kind of French document.


These pictures are so dark, it's been raining a cloudy, not good weather for picture taking!
I added a new piece of salvage over my windows in the living room.
I love this piece, it fits the windows perfectly.



I'm linking up with Faded Charms White Wednesday.

That is really a "killer" architectural piece over your window! I absolutely LOVE it. I have a spot spot for architectural elements! I've been thinning my house out too, but not the architectural stuff. I took to the store a huge old yellow and red cupboard that was filled with yelloware! Yep, and I'm selling the yelloware. Just thought it was time for it to go!!

Take care, Sue

Just when I thought it couldn't get any better than the print and the 3 Fates (Or is it the Graces? Or just women?) you show us the archi piece. Wowsers! Beautiful!

I'm trying to purge...but it is hard for me.
Your butter pat collection was awesome and kudos to you for being able to part with it! That window treatment is fabulous! :)

You and I must be on the same page. I boxed 1/2 of my butter pats to take to City Wide this weekend and have been clearing out a lot of stuff too. Happy Thanksgiving friend and I do believe I recognize those berries :)

I still have my butter pats! But maybe not for long! I too am in the midst of a cleaning-out frenzy, and it feels so good to get rid of stuff! Your room looks so serene and lovely. I love the french flair that you add to all you do, and your new shop is stunning by the way! Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration!
