Soulfully Worn With Love

All Photos Taken by Dore Callaway Burlap Luxe

Inspiring my visit to Renee's Santa Barbara home where the wedding shoot for Fifi O'Neill's wedding style book took place. Renee's home is filled with unexpected charm, here an aged mirror is a focal point to the flanked wall of vintage French books and a well loved leather chair of comfort sits an ear length away to the grand piano. Renee's piano does not have to be played to hear the music this room is filled with.

Love Typography letters of old vintage salvage.
Rustic Prairie style.
Layers of antique woods, letters of old canvas frame work, windows and jelly cupboards, French spindles and French chair legs mounted on 100 year old planked table top.

Can be found in my etsy with detail.

Soulfully worn and passionately lived adding a sense of peace and wellness living life with honest pieces; rustic simplicity.

Perfect piece for a Romantic Prairie Style Wedding; country salvage home brocante flea market style.

Often forgotten pieces will show up to my home where I will weave their beauty into my French flea market inspired style; soulfully worn with love.
Inspiring LOVE in all things worn with love.

I don't know where to start Dore. This chair, this chair, this chair... love it. Just beautiful and the salt and pepper shakers are beautiful too; love that tarnish patina.

So beautiful Dore. That first room is stunning!! The LOVE sign :) How sweet is that and I too appreciate these unexpected "things" that have been used and have been tarnished and worn over time. I have an old French mirror in my living room with lots of patina. As time goes on and it continues to age, it just gets better.

Thank you for sharing all of these beautiful things!

Dearest Dore,
I am so sorry it has taken me so long to thank you for your most welcome visit and kind words. It is always such a joy..

I absolutely love your LOVE sign. Old vintage wood, transformed into a beautiful piece of art by your talented and gentle hands.. I often wonder about old wood... Where has it traveled, who has it shared the years with..

What a beautiful collection of books she has, and displayed so well.
Inspiring post Dore.
Love and blessings,

I love your sign made from wonderful time worn pieces, filled with so much life.
