When I first started blogging I knew it would be a lot of fun but never in my wildest dreams did I think of all the wonderful treasures I would find. Mona over at Providence LTD Design has a fabulous antique shop and if you haven’t visited you really should but be forewarned you won’t be able to resist!
I first saw these framed 18th century script when she did the symphony designer show house back in April here. There they were hanging in the hall in all their glory and I knew I had to have a pair but didn’t purchase them until recently since I didn’t have a place for them.
I knew from just looking at them that they would be the perfect backdrop for my urns on the pedestals that mister man recently made for me. I didn’t want a painting or photograph that might over shadow the rest of the vignette but something that would work in conjunction as a whole. I love, love, love how it all came together, thank you Mona!
The other thing Mona had shown at the symphony house was a wonderful Italian candelabra there was just something about it that spoke to me.
In my studio
So it too came home to live in my new studio under an Italian hanging. Mona is in the process of updating her shop and promised to have it up and running soon but in the meantime there is plenty in her shop to get you dreaming!

Another purchase came from Christine over at greige a shop filled with most everything you can image. I bought this wonderful French market tote and have used it several times already. Not only is it functional, green but also very stylish, I love it! Be sure to check out her flea market finds if you want a tote like this and best part is they come in three colorways!

And for my kitchen I purchased both these wonderful breads boards from under spanish moss in their LaCraze shop. Angela and Renee have worked hard to bring you the very best in home furnishings. I plan on using my bread boards for more then just bread they would make wonderful serving trays for just about anything and with the holidays just around the corner they came into my life just in time!
All these ladies work very hard at not just a regular job but their blogs and blog shops so be sure to pay them a visit and tell them Debra sent you!
Have you purchased anything from a blog shop? If so I would love to hear about because you know we all need something wonderful!
