Just a quickie to say a huge big thank you for all the beautiful comments I received yesterday. It warmed my heart and I appreciate each and every message from the bottom of my heart ❣️🙏🏼 Although, it did confirm my conviction that too many of us are severely self critical. Here’s to keeping that voice at bay and learning to love ourselves! Sending lots of love to any of you in need of it; my mum always told me there’s only one of you, so treasure yourself. My mum is a very clever lady. A sentiment being proven as we speak, by the fact that she’s currently sunning herself on a Goan beach for two months, while we all freeze our nuts off! And talking of nuts....my mum’s name is Nadia, and when we met, Greg said he’d like to play rounders with my mum so he could shout ‘Go Nads!’. He’s called her Gonads ever since 😝
Oh, I nearly forgot...Priscilla’s rival lamp came out of hiding yesterday! I need a name for her...what do you think? X

Does anyone else have a dog who has a ‘I’m about to do a poo any minute now,’ walk, a bit like Peter Kay’s ‘walking to the dance floor dance’?! Harvey doesn’t. You never really know when he’s about to go, he just suddenly does it. But Flossie does! 😆 So much so that I start taking off my gloves and getting the poo bag ready as soon as she starts doing her walk. Please don’t ask me what’s so different about her poo-walk! It’s so incredibly subtle that I don’t think anyone else would notice. Just her Mum!! 😂 Anyway, my antique Moroccan fretwork pediment has gone up in the bathroom, supported by some columns I got off eBay. They need painting in the green of the tiles, but what do you think? Greg kept telling me it was a ridiculous idea and that it would look too themed, all whilst doing some bemused eye rolling 🙄😆 But he’s admitted, “it’s a bit mental, but it’s ok”. 😂 Have a fantastic Friday everyone x
So many people have asked about this cheetah, so here’s what you need to know: we ‘found’ it at our grandmom’s house. And it’s priceless.
The deco tallboy, on the other hand, is $290. And that beautiful mirror and brass lamp is $140.
Did we mention we offer delivery to every continental US state? 🐆

Did you know the legendary @carletonvarney hosts a Dorothy Draper Design Weekend at @the_greenbrier!? 😍 This March 1-2 Mr. Varney and his team have arranged an unforgettable experience that reveals an inside view and education of the iconic decor at The Greenbrier. 💚 Please click the link in my profile for additional details... I hope to see you there! ✨
Fun fact: Did you know the 1st appearance of Wile E Coyote and the Roadrunner was in 1949...that’s the unfun fact.
The first episode was titled “Fast and Furry-ous”!!! Oh how a good pun makes my heart melt. 🥰
Well, now that I’m off the hook for a Roadrunner pun, I can tell you about this little solid brass beauty.
He is a smaller version of a brass Roadrunner in rotation out there, and that actually makes him quite hard to find.
Very good vintage condition with the perfect patina for his equally charming personality.
Just a little #flashsale sneak peek for tomorrow. Not everything is featured here so no worries I still have some BIG surprises. What’s catching your eye? I always love to hear from y’all!

I don’t have a good pun for a magazine rack...but don’t worry, I won’t leaf you hanging! 🤓
Because this gorgeous brass Mid Century Modern magazine holder c.1960s is in mint condition with beautiful detailing to the base and those gawwwwgeous leaves as a beautiful accent. 🍁
Measurements to come ASAP but fairly standard magazine rack size, although quite heavy due to the material. $50 🇨🇦 Off to the books (or magazines) I go to look for new puns!
My sale tomorrow has some gilt features, some #hollywoodregency and some antique Wedgwood (yes, you read that right) I am so inspired by this gorgeous room from @missjanice_14 I cannot get enough of her pops of color 💕check out stories for new sale time!

Love the mix of materials found in this sculpture at one of our clients home.
Live in my Charish store right now is this beautiful Hollywood Regency Dorothy Draper style bar or cabinet. This piece is so versatile! It can be used as a bar or in a hall/entryway, kitchen. So many uses. It has shelves on the sides and behind the brass front. Drawer top with lion head pulls. Dm for more info if interested.
Brass figurines are often nostalgic for a variety of reasons - these vintage Siamese Cats make me think of the movie “The Lady and the Tramp” 🐕 🍝 💕
These lovely felines are in good vintage condition with expected wear/patina contributing to their unique look and character.
If you live by the water you are going to want this decanter with anchors in highly polished brass. Wonderful mid century design and holding up great for it's age. Made in Sweden and built to last. Has the cork seal with brass top.
A link can be found on our profile page to our Etsy shop.
Details on measurements, shipping and more photos are all available on my Etsy shop.
What do you mean I’m not a bear? 🐨
I have all of the koalafications!😅 Fur real though (pun intended), this fab brass Koala isn’t your typical brass figurine. He’s also a bank!
No, not a piggy bank, he’s a marsupial!
Coming in at 6” tall and 4” wide, this guy can definitely hold enough savings for a trip to Australia! *note: the rubber stopper for his bottom is missing but shouldn’t be too hard to replace.
At $29.95 you can’t BEAR to miss this deal but you’ll have to sort the 🐻 thing out with him yourself!
