Spring...

Spring...what a beautiful time of year..I live in southern Cali where we have four seasons..this year our winter was colder and wetter than usual & our Spring was very welcomed...the last week has been beyond beautiful here..with our recent rains everything is very green and blooming flowers and trees are everywhere...birds are chirping and the butterflies are doing their Spring dance..we have dined al fresco for the last few nights..I love this wonderful season is just beginning...our nights are still very cool..our afternoons warm..local strawberry stands are everywhere right now and they are delicious...lots of antiquing the last few weeks..working on several exciting projects with antique buying trips on my calendar..Sharing with you a glimpse of the last few weeks at Rue 27 Maison...💛

Mirrors & the Blues...

The new year is in full swing...shopping the last few weeks for several projects..sourcing antique & vintage mirrors...French mirrors are always in demand...I love old mirrors especially ones with ghosting..aging of the mercury glass...water gilt and old gilt..both have a patina that appeals to many...Also shopping for blue & white european textiles...Dark blue is one of the Pinterest 100 hottest trends for home decor...I love blue...it goes with many colors & styles and its so very French...Sharing a glimpse into my last few weeks and my love for old mirrors & the blues!
