Happy Wednesday, dear friends! I hope this finds you well and enjoying these last weeks of summer. Fall is right around the corner, and I can’t wait! As much as I love summer, I am so over the sweltering heat.
My family and I are staying close to the house only leaving to pick up curbside groceries or go to doctor’s appointments. Lately, blogging has taken a back seat, because I have had a difficult time getting around. In April, I sprained my ankle and fell carrying groceries into the house. Being scared of getting sick, I stayed home and treated it myself. However, after several months my ankle didn’t get better, and I was starting to have terrible back pain. I finally had to give in and go to the doctor. It turns out I just have a terrible sprain, and the doctor prescribed some physical therapy. I think it may be working, because I am getting around a lot better and finally feel like blogging again. Today, I am so excited to share a new find with you.
A few weeks ago, I spotted this gorgeous French Estanier cabinet on my favorite consignment shop’s social media page. For years, I have dreamed of owning one. As soon as I saw it, I called the shop and bought it sight unseen. Mr. Bleu and I masked up, and went to town to pick it up.
The cabinet is the perfect place to house my Majolica collection.
To make room for the French Estanier cabinet to be placed on my Country French buffet, I switched the bench and cabinet placement. The bench once resided on this wall. In a moment, I will show you where the bench has been placed.
Shopping the house, I found these lamps to place on the buffet.
Wanting to give the lamp shades a Charles Faudree look, I embellished them with some trim I had on hand. It was simple as pie with a little hot glue. Charles Faudree always had the most gorgeous lampshades in his designs.
Below is the way the lamp looked before the trim was added.
The Country French bench is now where the buffet once stood.
This summer, I have been enjoying my zinnias. Gardening has been such a blessing during these difficult times.
Sweet friends, I have missed you all so much, and I am so happy to visit with you once again. Take care, and have a most beautiful and blessed day!
