Hi Everyone, it's so nice to be back on a White Wednesday!
As the school year is coming to an end, actually today!! I find it harder and harder to catch my breath. As you all may know, I have 3 wonderful little boys, that keep us very busy. But now that baseball is over, school is over, there will be no more rushing around here and there, I think I might be able breathe, and put my feet up, and relax. Wait.... what am I thinking?? What am I going to do all day to keep them entertained???? Ugh....
Maybe they can watch me paint, and upholster. My oldest did ask me if he can make something on my sewing machine... Maybe I should break out the paint brushes, and let them go to town on some furniture?? hahaha... everyone says how they don't like the paint to be perfect. LOL
Enough jabbering, here are some projects that I have been workingon...
This beautiful little armoire is all original rose swag carvings, I absolutely adore it! Its at Country Roads if your local and want to see it in person. If you are not local, its available on our website.
This bed is incredible, with the rose details, don't miss this one. Headboard and Footboard, comes with metal rails that can be used as a queen or full. Queen fits really nice.
We painted it in a pretty french gray with white carvings, and aged the paint.
This incredible wood carved cherub table was once used to hold a chandelier lamp, or girandole, can be used for a plant table as well.
We painted this in a creamy aged paint finish. Very heavy, and has a creamy color marble top.
Look at this beautiful antique console table, with the stripped down paint, you can still see signs of cream paint in all the details, this one we left alone.
Has the most wonderful cream marble top, all original, and even has enamel caster wheels.
This fabulous Secretaire desk, is in a darker swedish gray, with aged finish. These are wonderful, becuase they can be used almost anywhere in the house...
Bachelor chest on chest, haven't had one of these in a while, these don't last long, they have great storage, while still being pretty!!
A fabulous mirror, vintage, possibly 1940s, with original trumpet and ribbon and rose carvings. A rare find... Great size for over a server, in a bathroom over your vanity or living room... A great mirror looks good anywhere!!!
my favorite urn... An original, from Buffalo NY, solid cast iron. A beauty.... nothing more to say...
Last but not least, my classic mini ruffle pillows. All 100% Belgain linen, includes a high quality feather down pillow insert $79
I have many many more projects I am trying to get finished, come see us next week, again for more beautiful furnishings for your home.
Come see our full line of home decor at Country Roads, in old town orange.

"I found the fabulous Full Bloom Cottage a few months back and fell completely in love with Loretta's beautiful furnishings and sumptuous linens. Her vintage European grain sack bolsters are by far a favorite of mine. Full Bloom Cottage's products are of the highest quality and will never disappoint. Loretta's use of vintage linens, chandeliers and exquisite vintage furnishings and accessories blend together to create a warm and relaxing home full of definite beauty. I am extremely blessed to have some of her lovely pieces in my own home." -Melinda Barrowcliff-Reyes of Alabaster Rose Designs

" I have bought several gorgeous pieces of furniture from Loretta, I would have to say she has helped furnish three quarters of my home! If I'm asked what would be my favorite piece I wouldn't be able to choose. The armoire is just incredible, the detailing on it is so unique, the chandelier in my dining room is to die for! My armiore in my bedroom is just perfect, I love waking to it every morning. Not to mention all the other pieces! I'm always anticipating what she's going to have next, and what new piece of furniture that I will be adding to my home!" Rebecca -A French Home in NY
