Aged over the years, the old crock has taken on years of use, as well as a
patina of well used through its passage of time.
I love using old pieces in rather not such common places in
my home. Changing the look of a room can be as easy as,
a couple of old pieces salvaged from the kitchen to a
side table in a living room.
Past Makes For Perfect
Chips and rust from the clay body of this ironstone crock adds to
the patina of time. Well suites and increases living with age and
character of all things old.
I wanted a little more charm to a side table, adding planks that helped it feel
rural French added past to the present.
Iron urns salvaged from the outdoors, layered with gathered French
vintage pieces that tell a story in how and why living with
found pieces is easy.
Everything in this room and my home has seen...
the passage of time.
There is a special joy in discovering new beauty in things
When I design I like to start from the floor up,
never overlooking how a pieces sits so grounded in its space.

The Midst Of The Sea
decayed old sea weathered in French Nordic grey, seaside sand beige, layered in
decayed whites and bronzed golds.
My hand twisted French wire-work art crown sits firmly embedded, barnacled with sea
glass and stones along with a tattered fragment of whats left of sea netting..
Known for my use of vintage book words ephemera,
the fitting gathered words...
"the midst of the sea."
lines the hem.
In the shades of my crusty gathered French oyster shells, this
angel of the sea came about.
" The sea, the sea, the sea. It rolled and rolled and called to me.
Come in, it said, come in."
