Since starting my blog, I have realized how much I enjoy taking pictures. Here a few things around my house that I love and that inspire my design.


French Zinc Pots
I can't seem to get enough of them!

Nests, eggs, and shells
nature does it best

Old silver
never polish

I love this old toy train stop sign!

This old typewriter is one of the first things I bought to sell, but decided to keep.

Architectural elements are my passion.
That's a whole other post!

Old glass bottles

I really love when they change color.

Old clocks, locker baskets
the rustier the better!

Hydrangeas are my favorite!
  beautiful dried as well

I have an obsession with French documents.
I have used them in several projects
including candles, pillows, mirrors and even my business card.

French document fabric from Ballard Design

These are a few of my favorite things.
What inspires you?
