Flea Market Finds

Its been a long two weeks and I've had a hard time thinking about what to write for a post....

So I thought Id share with you a few things I've been doing..

My daughter and I went to the Flea market and saw these beautiful hand dyed vintage fabrics from Africa. 

We were told they were used as shawls.

I bought some and would love to do this with them...

love it with the white!

They would look great in a room with red and white...

They also had these black and white hand dyed fabrics.

 I loved all the different patterns!

 I wish I had bought a couple of these too, they were beautiful.

 They would look great as pillows in my guest room...

I just might have to go back and get them!

I had to stage and up-date my parents home so we could sell it. 

We had to replace the carpet, paint, new cabinets, all new appliances and new counter tops. 

It was a lot of work!

She had the red sofa which I had to keep so I added the bold blue to 
  help balance the red.

We sold it in two weeks...we have a 30 day escrow and now need to pack up the house!


 I'm not looking forward to that!

Thanks for visiting,


Outside Dining and Vintage Plates

I know a lot of you might be experiencing Fall weather...

Living in southern California, we are still in summer mode...its been in the 80's to 90's this week...

I do love our warm summer nights and being able to have dinner outside with friends....Summer is my favorite time of year!

We went to my friend Shellys, who is also a designer and a fabulous cook.
She had a watermelon salad and it was so good!
 It looked beautiful!

Isn't her table setting gorgeous!

I had this chair recovered for a client of mine and wait to you see the back!

It looks perfect in her cottage looking home.


I added some small vintage plates to another one of my clients dining room walls.

 Its exactly what it needed!

You won't believe where I found this beautiful vintage oil painting?

In a garage thrown in a bunch of trash at an estate sale...

Yes, I believe I scored on this one!

Its signed by the artist, John.

I guess it could of been painted by the home owner.  But, any who, I love it!

And the recipe for this salad is below...

Hope you enjoy it!
