Country French

In a previous post, I had shared with you about attending a house sale, well we were the first ones to arrive for Judy's open house. I don't even know where to begin to explain her talent. The anticipation of us imagining what she had put together was pure excitement. All I can say and as you will see from the pictures is, it was just fabulous!! You really need to have been there to experienced these awesome displays. While you may can get an idea from the pictures, it just doesn't do justice to you having been there to see it in person. I know several of ya'll couldn't wait for this post and I understand your excitement. So, I won't leave you in suspense any longer.

This was her front porch:

This was out beside her house in the garden house:

This vignette was located in her front entryway:

Wouldn't like your Laundry Room to look this elegant?

These displays were in the Dining Room:

This mantle, bottles, mirrors were off from the Kitchen:

This was in her Living Room:

This room was located off the entryway:

These awesome displays were in the front Bedroom:

Look at all the pretty things in this back Bedroom:

These beautiful things were located in her Bathroom:

Hope you enjoyed the tour. I know I had to go back several times just to see it all. Fabulous job Judy, as always!!


  1. OOOOH! Thank you SO MUCH for posting pics of Judy's sale!! Living here in California, I'd never be able to go there in person and I really appreciate you posting her beautiful and original displays!!
    You do such a good job at capturing great ideas in photos!!
    Thanks again!

  4. DONE! I've added your blog and thank you for adding mine! My hubby "did" Canton last week - whoa! He came home looking like a boiled lobster~ It can't be anything but even hotter next month. Moaning, groaning, kicking & whining. So glad we Texans have it though. Again, thank you for adding my link and I look forward to "getting to know you". My bests, Devonia

  8. This was such a lovely post. Lots of great eye candy. Hey I was wondering if you wanted to participate in a little inspirational game I am having over at my blog? I am trying to get the ball rolling with it. Thanks, Keri

  9. Unutterably Divine ! So gald you were able to go and capture it for us to see. Thank you!

  10. Your pictures are incredible! I would love to be able to attend a sale that beautiful, but I think they'd probably have to push me out the door at closing because I'd be standing and gawking all day long. Thanks for such a beautiful post.

  11. wow, her style has really changed alot! I have magazines with her home all colorful and cottagy.

  12. Wow. Just amazing. Her booth at Canton always blows me away. Thanks for the tour.


  13. Hi Theresa! Thanks for the great pictures from Judy's sale. She does good work, doesn't she? And your photos are wonderful! Keep them coming!!
    See you in Round Top next week. We are doing the Texas Rose show -- just down the street from The Red Barn.
    See you soon!! Maggie

  14. All of those pictures are very inspiring. Thanks for sharing!! :)


  15. Wow!!!! I love it! You r pictures are inspiring. I can just imagine the creative burst you would get seeing it in person. I'm glad you were able to go and share. My favorite things: the garden room, and porches. Thanks

  16. I am farmhouse primitive and looking at your pics makes me want to do a room in Country French...I found so many displays I just loved....glad I visit your blog...great pictures too. Judy

  17. Hi, I think your comment that you left me went to the spam bi by accident. I saw it quickly. Did you say that you wanted to participate in the game? If you have more than one fav antique thats ok, you can post more than one if you want.

  18. Hi Theresa, thanks for sharing Judy's sale. Her house was like a dream home. I'm new at blogging and I welcome you to leave a post. I'm giving away an apron.
    I set up in Canton for 3 1/2 years and just left. But I would love to do roundtop. Your blog is great and I saved yours on mine.
    Have a Blessed Day,

  19. WOW...that's a lot of stuff! Where you able to buy or just look? If so...what did you buy? Sure does look like a lot to dust! HA! Thanks. Tricia

  20. You have been tagged by me.

    Your blog is one of my favorites. Love, love the pictures. Dalia

  21. I wish I was the talented Judy you were talking about but alas I couldn't put those beautiful things together if I tried. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week.

  22. Your lifestyle or taste determines what the focal point of your living area is. If you have a fireplace, you can rearrange your furniture around it. Or if you have a piano, and this is the focal point of your living area, your furniture could be set around it. When rearranging your furniture, also consider traffic in your Living Room Decoration area. It is always good to arrange furniture in off-square angles. This makes the room warmer and more casual.


I so enjoy your comments and you stopping by!
