This Week at The Treasured Home May 19, 2014
Hello there, gorgeous!
First of all, I’d like to give a big “thank you” to Michelle Andres, who shared her colorful art with us, at our Spring Party!
It was a great evening and I want to thank everyone who joined us and made it a special night!
If you weren’t able to stop by, here’s a look at some of the treasures on display, from my trip to Morocco and France. The wooden fruit picking baskets, were found in Avignon, France. The smallest of them (sold) in the front, was for children to pick berries. How sweet is that? Where were the child labor laws back then??
The beaded jewelry, is from the Berber tribe of the Atlas Mountains, outside of Marakesh. What wonderfully sweet people they are! The suzani, was found at an amazing shop in Marakesh. I hope to make a return trip there!
I found a wonderful source for silk and wool rugs in Marakesh. Not knowing if you’d be interested in rugs, I only purchased ones I’d want in our home. In this business, it’s a good idea to always use that as a rule of thumb!
Check out these purses, made of vintage grain sacks and belts, found in Avignon!
Really well made and lined with fun cotton fabrics.
These are French linen towels. Many of them are monogramed. Love them!
While this folding vintage poker table and chairs wasn’t found in Europe, I wanted to give you plenty of time to pick it up, from Father’s Day! Okay??
Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I picked any Father’s Day cards, for our new/vintage card display, that my friend Jana donated to “the cause”. Thank you, Jana!!
Living dangerously, I placed two potted boxwood by our front door! I think we should start some sort of contest, to bet on how long they’ll stay there, before they’re stolen!
Well, chick-a-dee, that’s it, for now. Hopefully, I’ll be able to show you how I’ve transformed a couple of antique end tables, I snagged over the weekend! Today, I found a lamp that’s going to be gorgeous, after a little make-over!
So, stay tuned!
Blessings to you and your’s!
