*Decorator's Sale*

Twenty years from now we will be more
disappointed by the things we didn't do
rather than the ones we did.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbour.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Would love to be there. I have a connection with some of my pieces and could never dispose of "everything". She is courageous.

I am interested in the small corner chair and the basket coffee table in the living room photo -- is she willing to ship to VA if I pick up the shipping costs? --

Lovely to shop although to far away ...I can dream! I have a collection of the red and white transfer, love toile and also have teal and white transfer. I love the botanical transferware the most. Toille is another favorite. I buy my friend Ann a piece of Majolica every year but she has a vast collection from her years of going to estate sales and living in FRance for 8 years. Wait until I show her this site! Thanks so much, Jennifer

Was just in Texas...wish I could have been in your home town though. Gorgeous items. Do you have a web boutique which you sell from?

I just posted works of art from my Papa. He painted frescoes in the cathedrals of Southern Italy before coming to America. I am so proud to finally have some photos to show his work. Stop by to see for yourself; you'll be glad you did!
