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.

Great Tricks from Flea Market Trixie

Because I follow close to 100 blogs, I am always finding other bloggers who inspire me, wow me and make me feel happy all over.  Flea Market Trixie is certainly one of them.  From Tallahassee, Florida, she is forever amazing me with her great sense of color, and it also helps that her favorite colors are also my own (smile).  She is a master at re-purposing, at taking the castoffs, the throw outs, the things that others find outdated, unusable or just plain ugly...she can turn a duck into a swan.  So here's to Flea Market Trixie and her love of old things, great color and other's castoffs..

Re-purposed shutters are turned into a fantastic headboard with the back of a bench as the top molding

She turned this old window into art

She customized a piece of burlap with her and her boyfriend's last names

My favorite - an old galvanized burner, fitted to a table bottom and a beautiful wood top was added

Mismatched china makes for an inviting table under the trees

Thanks Flea Market Trixie!

When I see all of these beautiful pictures it makes me sad that my house doesn't look like that. Except for the cottage....cute, but I don't think I could fit in the door. Not sure that loft could support me either!!
