Antiques at the Garden











Mrs. French was invited to the Antiques at the Garden here in Birmingham. The Friday morning of the weekend long event was a special invitation only Designer Preview. Mrs. French deemed me special and carried me along with her as her +1. The show featured many premier dealers from around the country minus any of the Birmingham dealers. I must say I fell head over heels for so many pieces. Alas I only took home photos while I am sure some others took home these fine pieces.

I bet you were a kid in a candy store there - I know I would be! Those rugs are great and I love the artsy American flag sitting above the candleabra - very cool.

Vintage is one of my favorite designs, and I just have to say that all of these items are wonderful, and would decorate a home in such a unique way. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. Are there any vintage-esc window treatments that would work well with this kind of decor? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.
