Ooh La La

The Paris Apartment...by Claudia Strasser, ooh la la look at what I received at my door!

I won this in December at Karena's blog Art By Karena , if you have not been there you have to see the artists she featuresClaudia has such great style and oh the apartments she styles, wow.  She also has a blog, Paris Apartment,  that is fabulous.
So, I thought I would share some more of Nostaliqic Antiques here in Asheville, I found some beautiful items that would fit right in a Paris Apartment
Lavender Bottles etched with the necessities!

Edith Collins Purse, the designer from Texas, oh don't I wish I had a few more of these, I love her vintage designs. 

A bronze starfish, it really looks like a stand but I love it.

Lace skirt, I loved it but it was pricey

A hand carved Madonna

Metal wall hanging

Vintage furs and clothing

I would love this picture for my bedroom

I like this one also.

Now to the things I did buy...

These pillows are from Home Goods, they are fabulous

Net Curtains with a velvety feel on the edges and flowers, 12 panels

A very tiny change petite point change purse, perfect for me to attach a necklace.  I have been searching for ages for something like this!  I was a happy camper

My buffet in the sun porch, my french clock from my mom!

From My Bungalow putting that French Twist wherever I can, Di
