Burlap Luxe French country kitchen where creating is known to take place.
The holidays here in our home entertain rustic French style where the pleasures of
the table will be set in rural French elegance.
|The French bread-boards will be put to use.|
|I imagine my surroundings to be exactly what I need it to be; layers of white neutrals|
that feeds my rustic soul.
|I have been busy creating with my love for wire and gathered |
vintage ephemera book words.
I let my free spirit imagine what I will create with salvaged wires and
a vision for what it wants to become.
Seeing is half the beauty of the end results.
|You will find them listed in my etsy shop.|
Along with custom orders.
|Tattered and aged golden silk will embellish as well.|
They are 4" 1/2 round and 2" in height
with little gem like stones on the tips aged as if time got the best of them.
My Wire Crowns can be used on your holiday tree as a tree topper or
as a meaningful tree ornament.
A perfect holiday gifting of One-Of-A-Kinds
each one uniquely created by my hands.

|Looking forward to sharing the holidays with all my blog friends and |
the relationships that add grace and beauty to our lives.

Nearing the end of blooming season I am getting ready to welcome winters calm
and a new addition to our home.
|The quiet spaces in our home are now filled with little foot prints.|
|Anticipation for her to arrive where we welcomed her home. |
|Shy and delicate at 1 pound 5oz.|
Wondering what name we will be calling her.
|Her breed colour: Blue Fawn, white|
this means her fawn colour is not true fawn in colour but, a cast of grey to her coat.
Her grey eyes are so soulful...
Here she is at 12 weeks, in all her grace and beauty.
She insist on resting in piles of linens making sure you get her good side.
|At home with the love Pia Bleu brings, she had no idea how much she needed us|
and how much we needed her.

Weathered and washed with life.
|How bravely Autumn paints upon the sky|
Hues of all flowers that in their ashes lie.
Trophied in that fair light whereon they fed.
Tulips, and hyacinth, and sweet rose red

|Here in October with the cool Autumn sun I lie awake in what I|
will find tomorrow.
|Here just a simple face of a birdhouse is all that was salvaged pale with|
a colourful soul
|Weathered with a galvanized patina garden markers await their next markings.|
|French floral cans with the change of seasons will be filled |

Awakening of Fall in my home with soulwork.
|Fall is where your heart lands, a season of renewal;|
awaiting the seasons to come.
|A French chest that sits in my entry to my French rustic home welcomes my very soul to a|
natural fall home.
I gave this piece many finishes until I settled on a patina that added an
|Natural French Fall|
|Even the colourless pumpkins are crowned and loved with the art of rustic fall.|
This crown is one of my bent and twisted wire creations.
|Fall and its natural organic pieces underfoot encourage an imagination with|
rustic country living.
|A custom ordered crown for Vera, this piece was loved for what it added to my fall.|
When stain and colour was not definable that's when I knew it was done.
Vera, its on its way to you and your beautiful Row Home Philadelphia.

Good influences surround me in my country kitchen where French style is inspired by
the French countryside.
|Brocante pieces fill the cubbies in a piece that was meant to be.|
|I have often wanted to change out the dark farmhouse chairs yet the rural|
style adds visual to the rooms soft patina.
|Galvanize, zinc and pewter are part of the good that influenced the interior|
style of no set of rules yet loving in the way objects are used.
|French antique galvanized have been added to vintage mahogany wood with a|
typography number painted to it adds a bit more French to the rooms decor.
They can be found in my etsy shop at
Also will be featured in Fifi O'Neill's new book Prairie Style Weddings due out
in spring 2014
|What's important in a French country home is the way objects are used|
and pieces are arranged.
|A piece that was meant to be is everything you feel from it.|
