Going Back to France

Hello Everyone!

I am so excited to tell you that I am headed back to France next week on a quick trip. I will be visiting friends, sight seeing and of course, shopping! It is almost exactly 1 year since our family left France to move back to Texas.  We completely loved our time living in France and I am so happy that I get to go back.

I will be visiting as many of my favorite spots  as I can and collecting as many treasures as I can. I will aslo be taking pictures and sharing on my instagram @BrocanteTreasures.

As I was going back through our photos here are a couple of my favorites. Loot shoots and sight seeing are how I worked my way across France, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland. This trip will only be in France, but I will have some new adventures I can guarantee that.

The Green Room

 

I took a few pictures of my Green Room today. I wanted to participate in a few hashtag parties and I realized this room fit a lot of different criteria. I also really love this room. Almost every single piece in this room is vintage and or thrifted. These pieces were gathered in Colorado, Texas, Spain, France and Belgium. The dark green velvet armchair was the first one I found. Next I found the two lighter green chairs. They are the same color buy different styles. The last chair, with the wooden frame, was found in Waterloo, Belgium. The pair of Paris sketches were found at a market in Barcelona, Spain. The hand written verse in the yellow frame was done by my friend, B & H Handmade Designs. The burlap and lace lampshade was found discarded on a French street as just a metal frame and I hand sewed the pieces on.

I love this is the first room you see when you enter our home. Even when everything else is a disaster, I am able to get this room to look good quickly. It is such a nice place for my husband and I to sit at the end of the day and catch up.

I hope you enjoyed this view into our home.

Road Trip to Greenville

Our family took a road trip from Texas to South Carolina last week. It was a long 15 hour trip, but it was worth it to be a part of the wedding of our good friend. We got to spend time in one of our new favorite cities, Greenville, South Carolina. Here are a few pictures from our trip. You may have seen some of these on my Instagram account, @BrocanteTreasures.

The giant gorgeous house is a vintage beauty that is for sale just outside of downtown Greenville. We love looking at houses and are always up for a quick real estate look when we are in a historic area. This house is listed for just $300,000, but when I talked to the realtor he said they have estimated the necessary renovations at an additional $350,000! The house is amazing and someone will have quite home when they are done.  The very last picture is most of my loot shoot.  I did have one more great stop on the way home in Georgia. When we are on a road trip I do my best to find stores to stop at when we stop for lunch, sometimes it works out. If you search “vintage” in the map then interesting stores pop up.

We are so thankful to have visited Greenville, been a part of the wedding of a dear friend, and had a little adventure. Our kids are amazing travelers and we all had a great time. I hope you enjoyed following along. Now I have to get ready for the Gypsy Market, shopping starts Friday!
