I think we are all really ready for Spring! In the Victorian era, pansies were adored for their exquisitely marked faces and their symbolism: The word "pansy" comes from the French word for thought, pensee, so if you received a posy of pansies, you could be sure someone was thinking of you. Also nicknamed heart's ease, tickle-my-fancy, and love-in-idleness, the blooms inspired Victorian gardeners, writers, and, of course, lovers with their sweet scent and beauty.

Kitchen Armoire

This is one of the best ideas I have seen for an antique armoire. How functional and pretty this is-wardrobes are fairly easy to find and what a wonderful pantry this turned out to be...especially this pine wood for a kitchen.

Things That Inspire-Southern Accents Kitchen

This kitchen is the winner of the Southern Accents Kitchen Award 2009. What is appealing about this kitchen? The neutral colors of the walls and cabinets, the vent hood (one of the prettiest I have seen), the decorative medallion, the furniture-like look of the cabinets and the storage are very appealing. The fact that there it is a happy medium between the desire to have very few overhead cabinets, but the practical need to have a few well placed cabinets is very noticable. Notice how designer Gwyn Duggan has integrated the seating into the island; instead of bar stools, the table is placed quite close to the island so it does not disrupt the flow between the kitchen and the adjoining family room.

Spring Party...

Here is another example of a long burlap table topper-this would work perfectly to cover up a card table-love the mixture of chairs around the table!

Antique French Scales

I've admired a set of these in Roseanna's kitchen forever-on one side she has an old blue & white creamer and sugar. It's setting close to her coffee pot and it's always holding little spoons and blue & white cups-she loves it and it looks wonderful in her kitchen. It would be wonderful in a bathroom balancing a glass jar of soaps and hand towels-perfect for a kitchen balancing tea cups or fruit. Could you find a cloche to put over one side???
The brass is the perfect patina and these are old and certainly not easy to come by! How I would really love one for my kitchen! We only have two sets-one still has the original weights. This particular one is painted.

New Spring Florals Arriving...

Here are large white cherry blossom stems stuffed in a copper planter...beautiful!

Antique French Copper Coal Scuttles

These are not your average every day buckets with there amazing style, design and solid copper. These would be a great decorative piece in any room you can imagine. These would look so wonderful standing next to a buffet in your dining room or sitting on a shelf in a den or family room. Stuff it full of cherry blossom stems and it would look beautiful on a kitchen table. You will have to look closely at the tin to appreciate the intricate scenes that is displayed in the copper.

"My job in those early years was to bring in the coal for the fire. Our coal bin was a three-sided box with an open top. Each night I went to the bin and filled the coal buckets with coal. We had two: one for big lumps and one for smaller pieces." -James N. Boblenz

Antique Religious Pieces

Kathy did a beautiful job on this display on the fireplace mantle. Temptations continue to come in-we are all trying to be strong. Here are two of the antique French lithographs along with a couple of beautifully aged brass crucifixes. The soft colors and details of them are beautiful and they are quite old and very special. One can certainly appreciate the story they tell...

More Burlap Uses...

Linen fabric mixed with burlap-what a great idea. Love the mix of this pair and how simple to do....the buttons on the chair are fabulous-this effect could also be done on pillows as well! So the next time you see a lonely grandmother's ottoman in an antique store just think slipcover?

Good Ol' Burlap

We have been using burlap quite a bit in displays as well table-toppers, runners, placemats and anything you can think of. It's pretty for Spring and easy and inexpensive to use-great to wrap around clay pots, or to use as a table-topper on an outside table-it has many uses!

Burlap is a woven cloth created from jute, hemp or flax fibers. These plants are not known for their silky or cottony textures, so the result is a coarse fabric with a large weave pattern and natural beige coloring. Burlap is often used to form storage bags for grains, potatoes and other bulky materials. Burlap bags can be imprinted with rudimentary logos or trademarks to help identify their contents. The actual meaning of the word burlap is a bit of a mystery, but some sources also refer to it as Hessian cloth.

We love the look of this finished tablecloth on this table! The possibilities are endless...

Antique French Furniture arriving this week!

Straight across from Belgium, France we have a large load of antique french furniture and small items arriving this week. Some of the larger pieces include Louis XV style dark oak drop front desks, french oak corner cabinets, fantastic marble-top commodes, in-tables & night stands, and an old brass/oak hall tree...Other items include french antique scales, very large copper & brass coal buckets, crucifex's & religious lithographs. Also arriving are very large barley twist plant stands, beautiful large blue & white delft plates, and carved wall coat racks. The hand-painted french tremaue mirror in the mix is just beautiful and one of a kind! Make sure you stop by and see all the goodies!

Pink & Brown Toile Bedroom

Toile is a word that entered the English language around the 16th century from a French word meaning "linen cloth" or "canvas" — particularly cloth or canvas for painting on. Toile de Jouy originated in France in the late 1700s. In the French language, the phrase literally means "cloth from Jouy-en-Josas", a town of north-central France.

Love, love, love this Jack Arnold pink & brown French inspired toile room. The pink striped skirt & pink silk bedspread seem to soften the dark browns and blacks. The over-indulged skirt on this wonderful antique bed seems to be the focal point of the picture doesn't it? Let us help design your room and bed with our wonderful fabrics and bedding.

Hand Embroidered Cotton Pajamas

These crisp white cotton pajamas are fresh and new for spring. Hand embroidered and 100% cotton-these pajamas are so comfy on a Saturday morning sipping coffee. Or so cute with a pair of jeans...

Grandmother's Buttons

Almost two decades have passed since Susan Davis and her 95-year-old grandmother spent the afternoon sifting through the odd assortment of tins and boxes that held the elderly lady's lifetime accumulation of buttons. The treasures they uncovered -- dazzling jet glass, lustrous carved pearl, intriguing brass storybook buttons -- begged to be converted into elegant jewelry rather than forgotten in musty tins. Thus, Grandmother's Buttons was born in 1985.

Grandmother's Buttons' authentic antique button jewelry was a huge hit and in the early nineties, the company expanded to form GB Collection, which produces replica button jewelry, as well as accessories and collectibles -- all inspired by these tiny fasteners of the past. The creations of both Grandmother's Buttons and GB Collection are sold in more than a thousand boutiques and museum stores across the country, an impressive list which included Lord & Taylor; Fred Segal; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Nordstrom; the Biltmore Estate; Signals; Orvis; J. Jill; and Norm Thompson. The company has also been featured in a host of publications including Victoria, Family Circle, Southern Living, Country Home and Modern Bride.

Amidst all of its success, the company has retained its home base in its beautiful, turn-of-the-century bank building in St. Francisville, Louisiana's historic district. The retail store, set in the bank's lovely, oak-paneled lobby, features a mind-boggling selection of jewelry made from exquisite 19th century buttons, as well as fine antiques, Victoriana and rare and whimsical gifts.

Bonne Saint Valentin!

Did you know that Valentine’s Day started in the Italian culture? Centuries ago, Valentine's Day was celebrated in Italy as an open air Spring Festival beneath the trees. People would gather to listen to music, read poetry and stroll through the gardens. These days, couples will celebrate by going out for dinner at pizzerias or ristorantes!In the Italian city of Turin, couples traditionally announced their engagements on Valentine's Day. In Britain and Italy, it was said that the first man an unmarried girl saw on Valentine’s Day, or a man who looked like him, would be the man she would marry within a year. Girls used to wake up before sunrise and stand at the window, waiting to see who their husband would be!It is pretty standard to expect sweets from your sweet on Valentine's day, but in Italy Valentines often exchange Baci Perugina. That sounds much more glamorous than a box of chocolates, doesn't it? Baci Perugina are chocolate covered hazelnuts that have a small slip of paper inside with a romantic quote written in four languages.

Decorating With Transferware

Transferware was first introduced in England during the 1750s. The most common color patterns included blue and white, red and white and brown and white. While original transferware pieces are extremely valuable, 20th-century reproductions are easy to find as well as budget friendly. Decorating with transferware is ideal for shabby chic, romantic country or English cottage decor.
Step 1
Begin by collecting several pieces of transferware in the same color. We have so many different colors and patterns to offer at the shop!
Step 2
Display an entire collection of transferware on a hutch or armoire for a dramatic decorative statement.
Step 3
Pair transferware with toile fabric for an elegant French decor.
Step 4
Use a transferware pitcher as a vase for an elegant, yet informal, centerpiece.
Step 5
Group several transferware plates of the same color but with varying patterns together for a beautiful piece of wall art.
Step 6
Swap out a boring soap dish for a pretty transferware saucer as an unexpected touch in a guest bathroom.
Step 7
Dress up small nooks, such as the space above the kitchen cupboards, with a collection of transferware.

Kingman Turquoise

All of the bright blue turquoise that Rocki Gorman uses is Kingman turquoise. The Mineral Park Mine, in the Cerbat Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, was first mined by Indians centuries before white man came to the area. It is one of the three sites of prehistoric mining localities in the state of Arizona. Mineral Park was the most extensively worked area by the Indians of the three. S.A. “Chuck” Colbaugh found a cache of stone hammers uncovered in ancient trenches and tunnels, when he had the turquoise mining concession in May of 1962. Ithaca Peak and Turquoise Mine (formally called Aztec Mountain or Aztec Peak) are the most famous of the peaks in the area containing turquoise.

Turquoise is found in Arizona, Alabama, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Texas, and Virginia in the United States. During the 1970s, the Bureau of Mines stated, in terms of value, that Turquoise is the most sought after stone in the U.S. mining operations.

Turquoise was the first stone in recorded history of man to be used as a gem according to the Library of Congress. The name Turquoise comes from French describing the stone that came from Turkestan, in Central Asia extending from the Caspian Sea to the Gobi Desert. Turquoise has been found in crypts dating from the First Dynasty in Egypt, more then 7000 years ago. The mines along the southwestern coast of the Sinai Peninsula are thought to be the sources. Deposits in eastern Tibet were reported by Europeans as early as the 16th century, and 14th century in India. Marco Polo reported turquoise in his travels in China. The Aztec Indians of Central America, who had in abundance the most prized ore of all, gold, traveled into our American Southwest to find turquoise. Turquoise was so valued by the Aztecs that they demanded turquoise as a tribute from neighboring states of theirs.

Juliska Pewter Stoneware

Don't let the beautiful pewter finish fool you! Juliska Pewter Stoneware has rich, old-world luster that summons up visions of grand European estates. It beautifully showcases Juliska's unique “mottling” technique that gives each piece an original, hand-thumbed, hammered design.

Developed in 2009, this ground-breaking metallic glaze is oven (up to 500°F), microwave, dishwasher and freezer safe! Layer it with all of your Vietri & Spode.

Antiqued Script Linen Fabric

A few months ago I fell in love with an antique Eastlake settee & rocker at an antique store downtown. All that was left were the beautiful carved frames, horsehair stuffing and ancient satin and tattered red velvet fabric...they were fantastic. The Eastlake furniture style as envisioned by its namesake, Charles Lock Eastlake, came about in response to his dislike of the over-the-top Rococo and Renaissance Revival styles popular during the Victorian era.
When I saw this script fabric at the shop I just knew it would not be too fancy but just perfect....the upholsterer put numbers on all of the buttons and words like "mademoiselle" on the arms.
