I found these pillows on Etsy. Although they can't be seen at the same time as the drapes, they do pick up the color in the fabric. When did I start noticing tassel fringe?
I guess my taste started to evolve when we purchased this home. It has loads of Country French charm. While I loved the house, it completely intimidated me. When we moved in, our furniture seemed to disappear. We didn't have the oil paintings that the glazed walls were looking for.
So I studied beautiful blogs, bought books by Charles Faudree, began to visit auctions and estate sales... I discovered that there is a world of affordable oil paintings and antiques if you are willing to search them out.
Now I enjoy finding out about old things. This porcelain statue of a goddess is a "Parian figurine". Who knew?
I'm also hooked on collecting little silverplate coasters. Are they not sweet?
I didn't know what to put in the empty space above this clock until I saw this candleabra. It was under twenty dollars in an auction.
Suddenly I am buying things I wouldn't have looked at a few years ago.
And I really love them.
Have a wonderful day.
