Twice a year I hitch up my trailer and head south. Seeing old friends plus a "treasure hunt" is unbeatable. This is a sampling, all items shown are loaded and ready to head north!
First stop, my friend Lisa's warehouse where everything is covetable
Lisa's speciality is the South of France and repurposing objects found, into a new life. I told Lisa when I shop I will often wonder to myself "what would Lisa do with this......?"
Never would I be able to rise to her level of imagination.
An iron bench with a heavy grade linen cushion she designed and manufactured
She found this authentic wine barrel in the same region, what a great patina. It already has a home in a design clients renovation of a large space to house a bar, pizza oven, dining and leisure space.
Ephemera......a deep passion. These French letters and documents, plus others I found, feel good in my hands. Who were these addressed to? What were the circumstances? The oldest dates to 1612.
Then there is art, which I cannot refrain from buying. In my home I collect old Dog oils, they move me. This pooch is from Belgium, c1850
France c. 1900. Look at these colors!
A pair of leather strap chairs by McGuire. See the same in the current issue of Veranda
She bought this chest from.......Kerry Kelly Novick who lives in Ann Arbor, Mi. This chest was in her fathers home, her father was Gene Kelly. Learning that after I bought this was quite a bonus, fell in love with the butter patina
