All the way from Afrique du Sud...


I simply had to share these photos with you. They were sent to me by a very special friend, who just so happens to also be a client of mine and lives in South Africa.


I love everything in this photo
butterfly collection(where did she get this? chez moi of course),
piles and piles of fabulous books,
wonderful domes,
petite vase,
ribbon detail....

Toutes sont belles.....j'aime beaucoup!


A demain,

  1. Thanks so much for sharing these images-the butterfly is gorgeous and your friend has such a gift for the art of display. Some shelves in my home are due for a makeover and I shall use this as inspiration!

  2. The vintage leather bound books are so sumptuous...and I love the way they are placed on the shelf...hither, thither and yon...effortless and natural, although I am sure they were placed there just so. Tied with string or raffia too.
    I might look for some olde books....
