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.

Want to go window shopping avec moi?
Don't know that I will be able to make it
to High Point this fall, but if so, this is
the first place on the list, YH Antiques.
I love antiques with stripped, weathered
surfaces. This massive antique carved
Spanish table belongs in my dining room...
or the shop :)
Definitely would test my self-discipline.
What a fabulous collection of Swedish and
European antiques! If you go, YH is located
at 430 N. Wrenn St., in the Yorkshire House.
Sorry, no website.
Can a person have too many beautiful
leather bound antique books?
Do you prefer gold,
Parchment with the look of old vellum,
or antique script?
These are available wholesale to the trade from
If you are not a dealer, contact me.

I have missed you guys and many thanks for
No excuses, just been pre-occupied !
I've had my "nose to the grindstone" and will
be filling you in over time.
First things first.....
Have to share these wonderful antique Louis XVI French bergere chairs with you that I just got
back from the upholsterer.
I picked these up in Avignon.
They are a wonderful sage green color with gilt
detailing. Luscious don't you think?
Mark your calendar for the weekend of
I have a client that may be moving to France,
so I am liquidating her house. It's a great
opportunity to get some nice French and English
antiques, especially if you are a dealer!!
For my readers, you get 1st dibs!
This is a great walnut farm table with a
breadboard top. It is 73" long x 34" wide.
Everything in the house will be sold, so if
you see something else your interested in,
feel free to send me an email or call.
French Louis XV style oak sideboard, dates from
early 1900's. Measures 78" wide x 19" deep x
This is a nice hand painted French chest.
It measures 59" wide x 22" deep.
This table isn't French, it's American, but still
nice. Actually, a mercantile table from the early
1900's. At 90" long x 24" deep x 30" tall,
you can see it makes a nice desk.
One of my favorites, this original painted
armoire/cupboard came from a shop also.
Measures 54" wide x 13" deep x 68.5" tall.
Lots of antique French glazed pottery and confits.
Are you beginning to get the idea its French Country?
Lots of upholstered pieces too, like this little
Louis XV bergere.
And this tulip is hand painted on the fabric.
Even the chandeliers go and every cabinet will be emptied and sold. This is a six arm, French
black iron birdcage chandelier from the 20's.
A hand painted trunk from the Alsace region
I am going to show the farm table to a client
this evening, so I plan to get more photos.
