Accessories For The Home

We all know how much accessories can transform a room.  It is usually in the smallest details that the largest impact is made.  Placed in just the right spot with just the right amount of lighting can change the entire look of say, a mantle, tabletop, or bookshelf.  With so many options to choose from, it was hard to select just a few of what were some of my favorites.  Not that there weren't more....I could have shown pages of them!

Wire Baskets via Nordic House

French Models Via Les Modes cir. Novembre 1904

Nothing changes as quickly as women's clothing.  Over the years, women have come along way from corsets underpinnings to Spanx , bustles to undergarments to enhance your derriere, Floor length, midi, and mini dresses and skirts, jeans on the waist, below the waist, and lower. Tops that are long sleeved, short sleeved, tanked and mid-riff.  It is hard to keep track of how quickly the style changes unless YOU are a Fashionista!

I have an antique French magazine from Novembre 1904 called Les Modes which outlines the current styles worn in that era.  I have made black and white copies of these ladies on heavy card stock which would be suitable for framing and matting.   Here is a sample of (6) of the models.

 I have a total of 16 or so of these photos that I will be selling in the near future with other French inspired items that are handmade when I open my little online shop. These are just lovely and would make a gorgeous grouping in a foyer, bedroom or guest bedroom. What do you think?
