My name is Cynthia and I love interior design, architecture, antiques, all things vintage, all things British (a tried and true Anglophile), a love of things that are time worn and hold secrets of days gone by. I love animals and try to respect their place in our world. I enjoying talking about the most beautiful places in the world, some exotic, some in our own neck of the woods. I love family and friends, music and movies. And most importantly, I love talking about these things with a daily dose of humor because I love to laugh and we all deserve to. So come on...let's go for a stroll.

AND PLEASE CLICK ON THE ENTRY AND LEAVE ME A COMMENT - I can't talk to you if I don't know you were here, dearest dahling...

The French Nest - College Park Neighborhood, Orlando Florida

It seems only fitting that my post today should feature a shop that will hopefully be holding a special place in my life in the future...not that it doesn't already.  The French Nest is located in the College Park neighborhood in Orlando, Florida.  My dear friend, Martha Cook, is one of the owners, along with Marsha Stokes, the founder, and Shelly Nelson.  Martha is my late mother's best friend.  She is very dear to me for a number of reasons, most importantly because she loved my mother as much as anyone ever has.  Martha is now one of my best friends, having welcomed me into her life the same way she did my mother many years ago.  The first person I called when I resigned from my 9-5 job last month was Martha because I knew that she would encourage me to follow my gut and to become a "picker" full time.  So, now I'm fortunate enough to be going to Florida in the morning to visit with Martha and Shelly and to see this beautiful shop, and to meet Marsha for the first time.  I will then be helping to set up their permanent booth at Renninger's Antique Show for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Could I be doing anything I love more? It's doubtful.  I am so excited for this trip, for a visit with wonderful people, and for this opportunity.  I am featuring all sorts of photos of the shop from the French Nest's Facebook page.  If they were accepting reservations for overnight stays, I have no doubt they would be booked for months in advance!
