A French armoire has been my hearts desire for many years now, just ask any of my family, now my dream has come true....
Such beautiful carvings but not too ornate.
Beautiful paint finish in Annie Sloan Original paint, expertly applied by Lucretia at  who supplied the armoire. Gorgeous shop with some amazing French furniture and accessories, such a delight. They also delivered and erected the armoire with no fuss at all, amazing in such an awkward cottage like ours! I am so delighted with our purchase!
Gorgeous original details, a joy to see.

Shapely legs....

Such a beauty deserves a new chandelier to show her off!

Pretty little shelf to show off  my gorgeous new jug (the tall one), a Christmas present from my daughter, love it!  What a great start to the New Year! 

On a different note, I hope everyone is staying safe and warm in this cold, snowy weather in the UK. 

                                  View from front door today...brrrr!!

Wow! This is sooo beautiful! I'm so happy for you! It's extremely cold here also, just trying to keep the house warm is a challenge. Stay warm where you are also!

That is absolutely the prettiest armoire, that I have ever seen. You must be on cloud nine.
I am very happy for you.
I am getting so tired of snow and cold weather. I've put on weight and can not seem to exercise in the house . . . I need some good old fashion yard work. I know that spring is just around the corner, but I need a little now . . . you know what I mean? I need a little sun on my back and dirt under my fingernails.
I would send you some snow, but looks like you have enough, too, LOL
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy your new beuitful furniture. It is amazing.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
