Petite Corner Français for White Wednesday

Here this evening for White Wednesday,
I want to share a little corner in my world...

 It's not always about the 
big picture.

Cast Iron Urn, Sea Float, Lavender filled Love Sachet


Full Sideboard ~ Candles ~ Terrarium ~ Cloche
In fact, it's never about that in this little
enchanted house we live in,

So... take a look at the petite whisps of whites
this perfect day, won't you?

Yes... this day is perfect, right?

Candles... always loads of white candles here

Love ~ Opera Glasses ~ Holy Candles

Mother of Pearl... Love it!

Mother of Pearl Knives from my Grandma... many years ago
Mother of Pearl Knives, French Plate, Rosary Français, Chippy Wooden Rings

Beautifully torn Zinc from France

In Another Life... Miss Mitchell's Opera Glasses ~ Romantic

Beautiful fleur details...

Angel in Candle light

French Angel

Paper Whites... growing, see?

Vintage Bottles, Petite Frog, Watch Faces

White Chippy Shelf, Provence Book, Chandelier

It's the beauty in between all the small spaces

Many of the pieces shared here are available
in my store...
Have you seen these
in Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine?
Vintage Bag Carrier Français
I am always thrilled when I see something
within their pages and I've got it in my 
inventory/maison ;)

I'm so happy it happens a lot!

Vintage Parcel Carrier Français

I've got something else to show you soon...

Found a great piece at the flea market
Here's a tiny portion (bad moi, I know ;)

New French Piece ~ White Roses ~ White Arch Element
Okay... that's enough of a teaser

Now, I'd love to tell you about
my beautiful friend, Jo-Anne Coletti's
new book quality magazine

Take a look...

Isn't this cover the most beautiful you've seen?

I just ordered mine a few minutes ago
and can't wait to place it on my
old, French coffee table here at my maison

It will definitely have a special place
and I'll dream romantically away
and be inspired ;)

June said...

Hi Tracie,
I am really crushing on that sideboard my friend. That is a stunning piece! I love how you put the really special things out to make you smile as you walk by. Do you ever just walk around your cottage and find yourself so grateful for the beauty you have created within it's walls? I really think that is how everyone should feel about their home, don't you?
Of course you must! You have created such a haven for your family. I cannot wait to see your feature in Jo's book. I feel a little humbled to have even been included, but thrilled to pieces!
Can't wait!
hugs to you...

Rebecca said...

I love how you've given room for each item to stand out and be noticed-I tend to clutter things up so much you can't see anything-and with all those wonderful items -you want to see them all!

After stumbling around here in the House of Horrors, it's such a pleasant treat to stop here for a bit of quiet respite. You never fail to calm me down. Thank you for providing such peace in my life with your photos.

Those opera glasses (I was on the verge of calling them binoculars) are the loveliest things ever!

Claudia said...

Your home is such a treasure, Tracie! I love all the beautiful things you honor and showcase. Those opera glasses are simply gorgeous! I have a feeling I would be out of control if I was lucky enough to visit your home.


Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Lovely bits of things all put together just so...what fun to look around. I love many of the same things Tracie...I have an old pair of opera glasses in a leather wrap. I adore your silver carved ones!
