My Home March 2014: Lovely Finds, and French Home

A little more lovely to share from around the house today.

Someone asked about the fuzzy jacket I wore in my video
the other day…it’s called the Oslo jacket by Laundry.

My sister has been purging her closets, and up for sale
is this custom-made large tote by Bent Tree Design
which was never used.

Lovin the quality of the bag and the fact it’s one of a kind.

Also making its debut in my video is
this new oil painting by artist Cindy Austin!
Sometimes Cindy offers up original art
for a song on her beautiful blog.

This is one of those pieces I love no matter
where I place it.

Burlap Luxe

I am so grateful Dore Calloway of Burlap Luxe alerted us
to this Smith & Hawken box on sale at Target!
I found one, followed her instructions for sanding,
and wound up with this attractive finish (below).
Merci, lovely Dore!
(Dore also has a most charming online shop!)

Inside the box is a rosary blessed by the Pope,

a gift my sister brought back from the Vatican.

French Home

Another item spied on Burlap Luxe was this gorgeous title:

The French Home

by Josephine Ryan

(Ryland Peters & Small, 2013)

Familiar with British designer Josephine Ryan’s work?
I was not.

Just. So. Romantic.

Last but not least is a wee lil’ pig found
in an antique mall’s basement.

He said he’d huff and puff until
I brought him home to reside
on a driftwood sailboat.
Home he came.

One more lovely in case you missed the last post:
adorable mini business/calling cards for 10% off
when you use this code.

Today was the first day I went out without
wellies in what feels like a year.
I do believe it’s time to
get our spring break

Peace to you right where you are.

      i love it when a trend brings back sweet memories of the 70s like these shaggy cropped coats!

    So many lovelies 🙂 I have a couple of Josephine Ryan's books, and even visited her former shop in London. That painting very charming!!! I love it propped just the way you show it. xoxo L

    Ahhhhhhh! Michele, love it all… and i was wondering about the furry jacket too, it's wonderful. This room is the best…

    Oh wow, my computer must have been whack yesterday, because i didn't really see all of this post, and some of the beautiful images… Josephine Ryan's work is insanely cool… wow! Love your business cards, and the little pig – also in love with those rough pottery plates of Dore's … and actually Dore too – she is so special. Thanks for the plug about my artwork too! I like "Night light" at your house…
