Hello sweet friends!
I will be going on a small trip to Peru with Alejandro, his brother Pablo and his wife.
Ok, some of you remember we went to a coastal tour with his older brother and his wife back in May.
Pablo and Alejandro were very close when they were growing up because Pablo just follows hubby. We have a wonderful relationship with all 6 siblings, they are seven with hubby.
I will be visiting you when I come back. We are leaving this Saturday and returning home the following Sunday.
I'm sharing my 'almost fave' piece of furniture in the house, although, let me be clear, I love them all.
Since I was a child I had a special attraction for things Oriental, I mean the Chinese, Japanese kind. I always loved furniture, porcelains, dishes, screens, you name it!
Ok, so here is what's in my foyer...speaking of Oriental.
|I bought this gorgeous Chinese secretary almost 15 years ago and it was love at first sight!|
The chair is Scandinavian with real leopard skin on it! We inherited from my in laws.
|I loved the black enamel, hand painted doors with mothers and children in a garden, playing. I might add it's painted inside and out of the secretary.|
|The other half of the secretary has drawers, where I keep tablecloths, doilies, napkins and who knows what else!|
|The left side of the secretary with some teapots. In the middle the three wise men.|
|This is what really got me, all those cubbies; when I first opened the doors back in the store. |
I immediately envisioned myself decorating each cubby with all my pretty treasures.
|Than I also have some of my dog collection on the desk top. |
Also some family photos and the telephone.
|Love the carvings in this piece...so you see, I really love all our furniture.|
|The chest is flanked by two pretty Frenchy chairs.|
|And of course, our antique Carrara marble top French table is the queen of the foyer!|
The floor in all our social area is marble with black onyx-marble insets. There are wonderful marble mines here in Ecuador.
Ok, so this is what our foyer looks like and what's in it.
Thank you for your sweet and kind comments, as they always make my day.
Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at their great parties.
