Crackle and chippy becomes a new design element…..


My new obsession lately seems to be anything with crackled or chippy paint?!?!? I recently picked up this capital to add to the vignette on the French baker’s table in the dining room. It is just the perfect size……

Fall has definitely arrived here and the mornings have a definite nip to them now!!! The leaves are changing….mother nature never disappoints!

Have a great weekend!!!!!

I love that. Perfect patina for sure.

Ooh, Ooh, ooh! I love that! Wish I had one. That's a good idea to use it like that.

I would have bought that little sweetie too. So pretty!

Looks great with your potted herb.

Hi Des, I have been looking for a capital for my cloche for a long time and have yet to find one. Yours is wonderful and I love the entire vignette.

I don't see a way to email you directly and I would love to feature your home at my Open House Party. Would you please email me at:
