I finally figured out how to place my name on my pictures.
It only took me ALL DAY lol
But I did it.
My name could be be a little bigger
what do you think ?
I am thrilled with my first attempt.
This is a testament to never giving up, I am happy, grateful and tired.
I think I will try again tomorrow to see if I can make it just a little tiny bit bigger.
Would you leave it as it is? Let me know

I can't wait !
These vintage punch bowls are great containers
These sterling silver napkin rings are too pretty
to hide away in a drawer. They add a little sparkle to the room
I don't like to buy beautiful treasures and then
hide them away in a drawer or cabinet where
I can't see them or use them.
In our home we use everything.
Out of sight out of mind
Not for me.
Nothing in our home is too precious
not to be used and enjoyed.
What do you have hidden away in your cabinets
that would look beautiful on your buffet or table?
Try putting the things you love
out for everyone to enjoy.
Don't you just love these
I found them at a
Flea Market in
The Pitchers were gifts from friends.
The one on the left is French Vintage Fabulous and
the one on the right is from Nordstrom's
Love the lemon and cherry pattern.
Don't you think?
This small leather carrier I found at a thrift store
It fits the small pair of binoculars
Even this small star fish looks at home
Love the memories that go with these binoculars.
Getting up early stomach filled with butterflies in
anticipation of the treasures to be found.
Everyone in the car, coffee in hand
so excited. I wanted to buy everything.
Love to treasure hunt.
It feels like fall here.
Very chilly and foggy.
Time for a cozy fire ,
to get the blankets out of the closet
time for a pot of tea.
Banana Bread in the oven yummy.....
Are you a *Romantic* at Heart?
I am a born Romantic. Love LOVE..... ♥
I also love Decorating with Cloches.
love the little Vignettes you can put together.
Here is the Cloche in our Bedroom.
I have a Collection of Sterling Silver
Treasures that I have been collecting since I was 16
they are under this pretty etched cloche.
I also have some of my favorite necklaces
that I love to wear on top.
They are just too pretty to have hidden away.
I love how they look and this way I get to enjoy
them even if I am not wearing them.
I have a few cloches in the garden protecting the sweet pea seeds too.
Have a wonderful day
Who's That little Girl?
It's me with my Grandmother Margaret and My Mom Elizabeth.
I am obviously excited about my new purse and velvet dress. My Grandmother's necklace looks a little tight lol. Love my Moms gloves and the hairdos,I will have to ask my Mom if she is wearing a hat!!!!It was the 60's and perms were all the rage. Pictures are wonderful. I am so grateful to have this picture with the 3 of us. My love of purses obviously started early. Still love vintage purses. My Favorite is my very old Lois Vuitton speedy.
I love this picture of Audrey Hepburn looking fabulous with her LV speedy.
When we were in Paris at the Flea Markets the vintage LV's were soo expensive and very popular.I still have the lock and key and the sleeve my purse came in.
Amazing that Lois Vuitton started in France in 1854.
Still in style and beautiful.
Do you have a favorite purse?
This is my purse for fall again this year, it just seems to go with everything.
Do you remember this?
*It Smells like this*
*I Love Lemons*
I was at Breakfast at Thyme in the Ranch with Gail and Barbara this week and we were admiring the beautiful flowers in the front of the restaurant. There were Eden roses and yummy lemon scented geraniums. The geraniums reminded me of Loves Fresh Lemon perfume.This was a wonderful memory. My first perfume. I immediately went home and googled Loves Fresh Lemon and to my surprise ........
it is still available. I found it on Amazon.com for $3.99. ( I think it was that much way back when)
This is so fun. I bought a few to share with friends. I can't wait to smell it again and see if it is a great as I remember,Light, Clean,Lemon fresh and Lovley.
I wear *Antonias Flowers* now. It is a garden of freshness,romantic, clean and crisp and delightful.It is from East Hampton. For more information about this delightful scent click on the side bar to the right "My Favorite Perfume"
Please Leave me a comment,
I would love to know what your first perfume was?
I really adore your blog* 52Flea* it is beautiful and inspiring.
Thank you for your kind words on
Many of you have been asking me if I was brave enough to paint my Front Door RED
and the answer is.......
I really Love my White Front Door.
I was lucky and found this old screen door at a thrift store a few years ago. I tied it to the roof of the car and drove home with my fingers crossed hoping it would fit our front door and with a little trimming, a little white paint ...adorable. Not sure if the red door would look good behind the white screen door.
I think I am brave enouph to paint my toenails red ,maybe...
So for all of you that know me this wasnt really fair because you know what my favorite color is and how many cans of white spray paint I own.
It is Labor Day weekend and we are off to enjoy the last days of summer fun on our boat.
Have a safe and funfilled 3 day weekend.
