My Home

Welcome to Our Home 
My rooms are always being decorated for one season or occasion,
or simply because I am rearranging my furniture!  Can you relate? 
I hope you enjoy the tour of our home~
From the courtyard and garden shed, to our small front yard,
take a walk around and come on in!

 French Courtyard
Garden tool shed 
Rose arbor and wire bench
White picket fence for the dogs

Antique and rare, our blue opaline chandelier drops and goblets.
We use these goblets on Easter to celebrate.
Dining room, french romantic style. 
Purple transferware is my obsession,
as is antique lighting.

 French settee I purchased from Designer Matthew Mead, 
which led to our friendship and many adventures
It sits underneath cabinet doors removed from an old built in.

Our cottage kitchen, accents of green

Green and purple do so well together

A restful escape at the end of long days.

  4. How can you stand having those dogs all over everything !!!!

    1. We love our dogs and we use slipcovers. I am taking it that you don't have pets....

    2. We love our dogs too. They come in the house and I just throw panels of cute curtains that I don't use anymore on the couch or chair. It's a little more work but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    3. .for those of you who are not animal lovers and consider them Family..don't be so critical of those of us who do...her dogs are very obviously meticulously groomed and match her lovely home and décor!!!!!!

  9. Hi Amy! You have a beautiful home! I stumbled across your blog during a search for Formica 180fx Calacatta Marble. I will be getting the SAME exact countertops as you. Question - did you entertain the thought of painting the "brown" seams white? I've seen a few posts on this and will probably end up trying it. Thank you.

    1. I did paint the seams with white chalk paint. But since this question we recently put in real marble countertops.

  10. Hi Amy
    Just found your blog
    Your home is beautiful - and the Mora Clock is just amazing - One day I will have one in my home.
    Have a beautiful day
