Where I Buy French Antiques

4.24.2017

I have been a fan of French country style for many years and the first few years I didn't own any French antiques and only a couple of English antiques.  I decorated with mostly new furniture and accessories in French country style colors of brick reds, mustard yellows, sage greens and more when those colors were very popular. As time passed my taste and style changed. Not the French style of it, but the colors. I started leaning more towards neutrals and then adding in more blues, tans and soft greens and grays. I was very fortunate to travel to France three years ago on a brocante shopping trip and was able to ship home some purchases. I truly hope to go again some day, but will probably only buy things I can bring home on the plane. I have also found some wonderful French antiques right here in the states in antique shops, flea markets, Ebay and Etsy shops. You don't have to travel to France for some great finds.

This French buffet in the foyer is great for extra storage and I love the wood. This was found in Normandy in a large building filled with lots more goodies. 

Always Look on the Bright Side

4.23.2017

Seriously y'all I keep laughing at what has been going on lately and wonder if I'm secretly being filmed for Candid Camera or some other reality show. Life goes along so smoothly and then BAM things go awry very quickly. As I told y'all my mom is in a nursing center for a fractured pelvis, but I never told y'all how that happened. So I thought I would share her very freak accident and what's going on lately with me, too if you missed it on IG and FB. With all that has been going on I am staying positive because there is no point in being negative. "Always look on the bright side".

What a Week

What a week it has been!
Skin cancer surgery and a broken foot on the same day just isn't fun. I'll share more info soon.

I hope y'all have some fun plans for the weekend. I guess Mr. Savvy will take me grocery shopping since I can't drive and I'll have to drive one of those scooters so watch out if you shop in my store. 
Have a good one and be sure to check out all the inspiration below.

Vintage Front Door Decor Idea for Spring

4.20.2017

I finally got around to sprucing up the front porch last weekend. I found some potted lavender plants and a gorgeous pink hydrangea while shopping at Costco so of course I had to buy a couple. I love using my vintage fruit picking bucket for different things and this time hung it on the front door and tucked a lavender plant in it. I have a very small front porch and like to keep the decor on it simple.

Spring Refresh in the Great Room

4.17.2017

I have been slowly transitioning my home decor for spring by removing the darker heavy fabrics and accessories that say winter and replacing them with lighter fabrics and colors for the warmer season. With just a few updates the great room has been refreshed for spring.
