Peek into my Parlor

Still in the USA
I am
sharing a glimpse
into my Belgian parlor 
as I left it
a month ago

Filled to the brim with treasures from a life of world travels
and an ever changing room that makes me smile
one of my newest finds is
the little yellow velvet chair, a sweet French 'fauteuil crapaud'
'tub chair'

The needlepoint Louis XVI Chair
was found while shopping with a friend at
the fabulous
Tongeren Flea Market in the city of
Tongeren, Belgium

And I just
this oversized lampshade
on this fun crystal French floor lamp
Oh, the Belgian auction...
a treasure trove
looking forward
the next one!

Chateau De Beloeil Le Versailles Belge


Belgium is filled to overflowing
with beautiful inspiration

to have this sojourn here
as long as it lasts

It is my pleasure
 to share it with you

a peek 


Le Versailles Belge

Just about 12 Kilometers from my home

An Adventure within an Adventure

Just new to Belgium and the adventures within,
I embark on one of the most precious
adventures and gifts this world has to offer;
new life
born to our family
of course I'm off...

There's a new babe in town.
In a town in Pennsylvania.
And this little one is the newest member of our family.

Introducing this new baby to design and the arts is of "high value" in this bloggers family... so a trip to the One and Only store of it's kind in the whole of the USA, and owned by one of my favorites, Anthropologie, was in order, with Brunch to boot, we went on an outing to Terrain.

Steyer's Cafe at Terrain
Filled to the brim with house and garden ideas.
A plethora of inspiration.
Fabulous merchandise.

Is that smoke coming out of the gnome's home?
Poesies displayed in a cake stand, what a sweet idea.

Bunting made with scraps of wool and ribbon.

Welcome To My New Adventure

A Happy home.
A Joyful home.
A Place that makes you smile.
A Cozy place.
An Interesting space.
A space that makes you linger.

The design philosophy I have lived by during my many years of changing abodes all over this beautiful planet and even now as I enter into the new uncharted territory of Blog Land and as an American living in Belgium.

I thought it would be apropos to let you peek into my Foyer as I begin this journey.  Welcome to my world, and to my new adventure!
