Forced Misshapen Rural Mud
Objects Of Desire
over 59 years ago my grandparents purchased a country home that was
already 250 years old.
In this home was family heirlooms that my grandparents
became the new caretakers. Old film plates date this
rural farmhouse trunk back 250 plus years.
Its original milk washed French bleu paint was amazing, yet had been
painted over with a black-green that left me no other choice than to
strip it back to its rawness and add new history in a washed and
distressed white... A lime waxed technique.
This trunk chest adds a sense of simplicity of all things peasant and
rural to my French home without a gap in it fitting in.
Thank You Grandpa,
it is resting where it belongs

Idea To Inspire A
Seaside French Lantern
This vintage lantern made of hand forged iron trimmed in barley twisted iron
was purchase from a beautiful seaside home yard sale in
Washed in years of sea mist, aged in the beauty of white and galvanized grey.
A French lantern that needed to come with me and where would I hang it was not
my concern, I just knew I had to have it.
It has moved about my home in a vignette or two and pushed aside in my
home office space out of the way until now!
A Side Table Lantern Lamp
I wired the pendant length wire and chain with new wire, then
attached a toggle switch for tuning it off and on.
Enough wire and a plug was added in length long enough to not
limit my moving it about and where outlets may be at my access.
Yes, it came to thought that I did not have to hang it quite yet, I could
find some uniqueness in its use until a good fit is constructed.
Perfectly aged with all the rightness of a patina to love.
Chippy whites layered on a patina of grey and
Within this space it became interesting with light, and
it casts interesting reflections around the room.
