I have a strong affinity for old stone pieces.  Architectural fragments look wonderful hung as art, thick slabs for walkways or steps and planters especially this time of year.  Not that these old pieces need it but the bright green of spring plants make the old grey stone come alive...

I can't even speak this picture above is so breathtaking..the old brick steps, stucco, stone entry, the shutters above, their painted door, the fantastic lamps and the antique stone pots.  (side note..the plants in the pots resemble my hairdo on any given day so if you would like to recreate this look I could oblige)


My sister is putting simple Boston ferns outside the beach house this the lantern too...

If you need height in a large area adding a shrub or small tree  with flowers and ivy cascading is just beautiful.  I like the calming look of boxwood ...

I also love using outdoor planters inside the home...I do believe Brooke from Velvet and Linen is building wonderful windows and doors as the ones above into her new west coast home ....

I always like things a little off center....notice the shutters in the corner

Paper whites with chartreuse reindeer moss .....

A beautiful vignette using books instead of plants...I love the contrast of a little gold with crusty old white ....

More reindeer moss......

Found this on pinterest....what to do with those old jeans??? Now you know....

A VERY unusual planter....I beg you not to reproduce this on your front lawn.... Keep it in the back!  I think that sofa could have been saved and recovered, what do you think?  I DO think I would have used larger plants, though.  It just doesn't scream succulents to me...

My front porch above with my frost proof flower choices du jour. The planter on the right is my favorite. And now to show you a wonderful collection of available old planters...

Keeping with the floral theme the SUNDAY NIGHT SALE is for this beautiful oil on board still life painting of a rose in water, by Connecticut artist Charles Logan, custom framed.  It measures  11.5 inches tall by 9 .75 inches wide.  It retails for $525.00 and it is on sale for $175.00.  First person to email me gets to take it home (buyer pays shipping)

Good luck!

The Sunday night sale has been a great success, thank you to everyone for participating and for your nice comments. I really enjoy hearing from you and seeing your pictures of rooms where antiques are used.  There will not be a sale next week as I will be hunting for Easter eggs.  My favorite blog list is growing, please visit these talented designers for wonderful inspiration for your own interiors.

There has been a small price increase on the window panels but I am honoring the current pricing until April 15th if you were thinking of placing an order now is a good time. The site has been updated with new finds, email me with any questions.  Once again, I use a terrific independent delivery service for pieces traveling across the country and I can easily get a price quote for you.

Happy Easter , Happy Spring!

Warmest regards,
