In October we spent a day cleaning out my father-in-law's extra garage. He has dealt in antiques for decades. We tried to organize things for a future auction (he's in in 80's now). Things we didn't want to mess with, we donated to the church rummage sale. We gave them a huge box of old piano music. When I see things like your candle...I am crazy with regret!

You're awesome Chrissy! This looks like it's straight out of the pages of Jeanne de Arc!
My girl in that vignette is a platter. Isn't she the prettiest?

You know, everytime I open your web page I let out a great "sigh"...of relief because that's how it always feels when I see your decor! I'm done moving and alive! Yay!! I haven't decorated much yet but I will get there. I updated my blog, finally!! Thank you for your well wishes. Hope all has been well for you!

I am thinking more white (hmmm...inspiration from you) for my decor change. :)
