Today was a very special day for me. I went to my friend Odiles store at 11 and left at 6. The day went by so fast with midi(lunch) with her beautiful daughter then back to her store for shopping. I also went to her home upstairs and ooh la la is all I can say. Everything is so perfectly imperfect. She arranges things in such a unique way. Rows of mirrors and frames stacked together with 18 century wallpaper hanging on the wall with clips. Pieces lost find a home on one chair while a cat lounges on another. Of course the cat was laying on 18th century fabric. No photos of her house as it is secret place..... her special place. We had tea and lots of talk. Below are a few treasures I bought for me. Sorry nothing for the store today. I am over the moon to be the keeper of these treasures for a time. The star wreathe is from a vierge. I am going to hang it with my processional wings. The wall paper is going above my bed. It is in a style called grisalle. Oooh and the zinc turned green funerie wreathe. Rue de Republique is the way to a little piece of heaven in L isle sur la sorgue.
I am a Christian woman saved by Grace living in a fallen world. I am trying to grow and be shaped into our Loving Fathers image but that is not always easy...that is were the Mercy and Grace comes in.I have four wonderful children and the most loving husband you could ever ask for. I went to France for the first time on my 40th Birthday and have been 6 times now and have recently started a small flea market out of an outbuilding on our property .We live in a 1886 Victorian on a few acres outside of Portland Oregon.
