More Decorating Ideas

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

  I just moved from my house a couple of days ago, and I'm temporarily staying with my daughter and her family.   I can't find anything, and have very little space right now, but I'm happy to be here until my place is ready.  Haven't had much time to do anything exciting lately, except pack.  So I'm going to share some more photos from my last trip to La Bella Luce.  Hope you enjoy them.

These are just beautiful, a great selection of colors to match any decor.


This picture doesn't do this tray justice.  It was made by a local artist, and is painted on wood and framed with numerous coats of acrylic.  Isn't it lovely?

I think these are so pretty, hanging on a rail in the bedroom. These lovely Christening gowns are from Italy and France.

Don't you love pretty papers, I like to line my drawers with them.

Isn't this gorgeous?  I'd love to have it, it was love at first sight.


This room is set up for a man's use with more masculine touches.


This is just perfect for a little girl's room.

   Well, that's it for the day.  Hope that you enjoyed seeing these decorative touches from La Bella Luce.  I'm sure that you know by now that La Bella Luce is an antique store located in historic Clifton, Va.  It's a beautiful little town, not too far from DC.

 Thank you so much for the visit.

Till Nest Time,

  1. What a great shop! The blue glass drops on the chandelier are spectacular. Yes, I have the perfect spot for it!! :) Happy Blue Monday! Linda

  2. That blue chandelier is unique and I especially like the peacock's "eye" peeking out.

    Have a good Blue Monday, Jeannie.

  3. How lucky you are to live by such a great shop! Lots of fabulous things, I'd be broke if I lived near by! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Love these kind of shops...
    Nice blue chandy...

    1. Isn't that gorgeous? It's my favorite.. thank you so much for stopping by.

  5. Love things that wold look nice any home. I really like the tray.

    1. I like the tray too, If you can paint, the tray would be easy to make. Thank you so much for the visit.

  6. What a beautiful selection you have! The painting on the tray and the pretty papers are my faves. Now why can't I have a place like La Bella Luce in my side of the pond? I'm jealous!


  7. Hello Hazel, Thank you so much, happy that you liked my selection. Most of the things in La Bella Luce come from your side of the pond (France and Italy), wish I were closer the them, so I'm jealous of you too. Thank you so much for the visit.

  8. What a fabulous shop to stroll through. Here are mine if you have a chance http://www.mariasspace.com/2013/08/my-day-at-bay.html

  9. Oh how I would love to walk through that shop and touch the merchandise

  10. So many pretties, I would love to visit in person! Thanks so much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday...
