the white and frenchy











this is THE WHITE SECTION.....the white bedroom set is really nice ...it has cherubs on it....we priced it all separately..the bed is in the rough room......we really worked in here this week.... 2 pieces sold , both full of stuff..so it was a big mess....but we put more in and refluffed everything....i still have a huge frenchy screen and no where to put it...it has giant cherubs on it....and of course lots of french dancing girls in here....and mercury glass, and some church relics, and most of our white things...like milk glass, and white pottery....there is a gold section in here too.... its packed...

. well, i like all the sections and especially the white one ...it is so fun....lots of extreme architecture and i try for a look like it came out of a castle...kind of a shabby one........thats the great thing about having a store...i can indulge in so many parts of the world of objects...and not have to totally commit to any like you have to do at home....i guess thats why so many of us are kind of eclectic..we dont like just one thing...at home i have a bit of oriental, from my parents...lots of great early indiana, and lots of english country and lots of early folkart.... my main collections are from 1850s to the 1880s... and hey ....it works for me...
