"Hot July brings cooling showers,
Apricots and gillyflowers."

   I have been on a few summer antiquing trips lately and if you follow me on Instagram you will have seen some of the snapshots I have taken of the beautiful treasures and displays that I have seen. I thought that I would share them here as well! I have seen many lovely pieces lately - I wish I could have taken them all home with me but sadly I had to pick and choose very carefully. Sometimes it is a thrill for me just to see beautiful things! I hope you enjoy this glimpse into my treasure hunting escapades!

My most favourite French bakery that I always visit when I'm on one of my antiquing trips.


  1. Absolutely exquisite treasures, dear Jennelise! And a yummy French bakery to top off what I imagine was a fantastic trip...
    So good to be back visiting you...

  2. Thanks so much for sharing Jennelise....l've loved seeing all the beautiful things you photographed on your travels....The settee is amazing, did it come home with you l wonder:-) and the chocolate cakes....irresistible oui..!!

  3. I am very taken with your soft victorian style and especially your name. My middle name is Rose and my daughter just had our first grandchild and named her Isla Rose. I must show her your name since I love it so much. Too bad I didn't find you before her baby was born. I would have influenced Lisa to give Isla your name instead. LOL Come by and visit me at my blog, I'm following you now.
