An 18th century Swedish stepback vitrine cabinet with geometric lines. Inside is a collection of antique Creil creamware from France – notice how their octagonal form echos the angles of the vitrine.
Much, much more in the new shipment – please stop in to see it all.
At this time of year, I normally bring out my collection of antique brown-and-white transferware. But, I’m thrilled to say the collection has found a new home. Yes, I’m paring down, becoming a minimalist. Just kidding! I am running out of room at home, as the other collections (creamware, ironstone, salt glaze, mercury glass, etc) have grown considerably.
Remember my friend and client, Ceane, with the smart kitchen makeover?? She adopted the collection, and is keeping it intact – THANK YOU, Ceane! (I did hold back a few pieces but, shhhh, don’t tell Tom.)
Just in time for Thanksgiving. Ceane and I decided the transferware should go in the built-ins of her beautiful dining room. There’s still room to layer in more pieces, so it will be exciting to grow the collection. We are now working on wall art.
This little guy approves 🙂

Fall inside and outside our 99-year old home.
I’ve also teamed up with three friends (Erin, Kelly, and Shannon) for a #RestyleAndRefresh Instagram challenge to showcase decor changes in our homes. These can be new vignettes, holiday accents and / or refreshes of any kind.

Shannon fills her cottage with charm and collected pieces – she’s a styling genius! Her vignettes are creative and approachable. I love Shannon’s fall mantelscape with its patina and texture. Go ahead and share your fall Instagram vignettes with us.

Kelly‘s 100-year old home is cool and eclectic, just like she!
