To feel joyful in your home each day is the highest form of happiness
What do you collect? What objects do you have a weakness for and find utterly irresistible when you happen upon them? Where do you go looking for your treasures? My favourite pieces are usually flawed, never perfect such as this gorgeous old concrete swan planter. Broken beak and all, to me she is perfection.
I adore this Victorian era wall sconce. I am yet to find another to complete the pair. She oozes French Eighteenth Century charm and I am enamored by her wondrous beauty.
I have a magnificent old baltic pine apothecary chest with oodles of glass handled drawers. I keep my collection of antique porcelain pocket watch faces in one of them and always try to leave it open so the surprisingly joyful inside shows!
Thank you for viewing my blog and if like me... you derive pleasure from collecting beautiful old pieces with true provenance then please click on to Pure Provenance facebook site link under 'about me'. Once there, you will be able to view albums featuring many interesting pieces currently available to purchase.

The essence surrounding your bedroom has a large impact on your mood and how you start your day. For a romantic, soft, and feminine feel, a French-style bedroom is what you need.

A home is a sacred place, built over a lifetime with a loving heart.
It isn’t the money you spend on the decoration of your house, but the attention you pay, the care you give and the private passions expressed in your environment that makes your space uniquely yours.
There is no substitute for wood, marble, cotton, wool and silk.
Use the best organic materials for their intrinsic integrity and enduring superiority.
|By using these principles your house will inevitably make a statement|
