Hi Dore, love the weathered wood patina of your folding chair. And your hand sewn stockings are so beautiful, such a pretty feminine shape and material.
Have a great weekend!

You have such a consistent, and consistently beautiful style. The tones are marvelous! I can never resist scrolling through your older posts again when I visit. Your comments are also equal to your gorgeous posts. Such a treat to have a visit from you! Love the new stockings!

Oh Hello my dearest friend, I have missed you. Every time I see your pictures I want to white washed everything I own. Thank you for your sweet comment on my post. I hope you had a wonderful summer. It just flew by so quickly for us here. I can't wait to see more of your beautiful creations.

A visit is always a relaxing experience. Your French rural is a peaceful environment in all your tones of neutrals. Weathered, washed whites, the softness of bare woods the additions of Grey warms the senses and invite lots of scrolling your photo essay. I met you through your etsy store back in 2012 when I made my first purchase of a beautiful White Matellassé stocking. Perfectly sewn and unique I love displaying it for the holidays. I look forward to my latest stocking purchase from you, the gorgeous Bleuish/Grey velvet French Boho one.

Your artistic expressions are much appreciated and really delight not only the eyes but the soul. Your words and photography in your French rural home is always a relaxing and inspiring visit to explore and lounge in your posts.
Sending love,

That little folding chair!!! That is one of the most darling little chairs I've ever seen. Your handmade stockings are so beautiful, very unique. Learning to sew is on my ever growing bucket list:) Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend my friend.

Dore...... I sat here, studied each photo, found beauty in everything. Your words and the pieces you love reflect what a wonderful person, woman, you are. The stockings are nothing short of perfection and how wonderful if I even had one of those in my home. The desk, the chair, the pieces you adorn your home with are so very lovely. xoxo ~Ashley

This is a perfect little corner to write a note. I forgot you had an etsy shop. I shop there all the time. Going to visit now.

Last night I was peaking around Pinterest at Christmas! I was a hoping the weather was cooling down for Autumn, I have the firplace stacked with wood ready for the seasons first crackling fire. The stockings are are lovely , I wish them for 4 little girls! How cute would they be on the mantle. I love your quote, it's perfect!
Enjoy this first weekend of Septemember,

I adore this spot in your lovely French home, Dore. The weathered raw wood of the folding chair and sweet French table are so humble on their own, but you raise them to new heights with the layers of mirrors and the tattered books! The heirloom stockings are so beautiful!!
Your blog and home are always a place to come to be inspired!!

Dear Dore, love the stockings! I was instantly transported to a photo in my mind of box beds, and an entire family wearing these! Funny how things can take us to another place and time. Have a great week! Love your artistry. xoxox Christel

The petite writing desk is beautiful with its curvy legs and top. The patina of the natural wood is very soothing and invites writers to sit a while and leisurely write.


Debbie said...

Oh how I love the layering effect you've created on the rustic desk, Dore'! It speaks to my heart.
The stockings are so beautiful, and impressive for the upcoming holidays.
I appreciate your suggestions for the ribbon embroidery using grays and whites, Dore'....I will try that with my next sachet. thank you!
Have a fantastic week!

Rue said...

Hi Dore :)

Everything looks so lovely! And those Christmas stockings are gorgeous.

How sweet that your son's nickname was "rue" as a child. I used to call my son Pooh bear when he was little. He's 25 now and probably wouldn't like it as much these days ;)

Thank you for your sweet comment.
