New White Linen Vintage Ruffle Lampshade

Inspired by my vintage ruffle shower curtains, and bedding,
 I sat down this past weekend, and slip covered this lampshade in a pure white linen, 
and added a vintage edge ruffle trim. 
The slip cover is removable, so it can be washed.
This pretty little glass lamp is so perfectly elegant, 
with just enough patina on the brass, 
to show its age.
Available now at our online store

The new linen "seaside retreat" starfish pillow.
New updated design, this is one of our best sellers,
as seen in Romantic Homes Magazine
Available online, and To the Trade.
Vintage Edge with tattered sewn starfish,
available in natural pinstripe, natural, and white.
See our store for more details,
available inside our store @ Country Roads Antiques.
Ask for Full Bloom Starfish Pillows.

to go with our seaside theme, we also added these sand dollar
                                                      night lights to our collection.  
                                            Add a little beach decor to your room. $12

Obsession with a Daybed....

So I am completely obsessed with this fantastic metal daybed. Just perfect for an outdoor garden. Trinidad has the most wonderful things... This was an item from a recent container from France...

Maybe I can talk my husband into an early 
Valentines Day present....

 I can picture this besides my pool with a big
fluffy white down bed, and large bolsters
just lounging....
Ah Summer....
I can't wait....
Hope everyone has a wonderful
relaxing weekend...

Layers of Linen Ruffles & French Beds

 Thank you Kathleen @ Faded Charm for hosting this White Wednesday.
This layered poplin tablecloth was shown in my Jan. 30th blogpost, and alot of you have asked where to get it, so I just wanted to post that this is available through our website here.

I just wanted to share with you upcoming items that I have posted to our online store.
We are introducing some new reproduction beds, by Eloquence.
These beds are a great alternative to antiques
because they come in regular queen sizes, as well as king sizes.
With these you will get the look of a beautiful
French Antique, and the sturdiness of a new bed.
The full line can be viewed on our website Full Bloom Cottage.

 Beautiful Button Tufted bed, upholstered in a pretty natural linen, 
can also be purchased as just a headboard.
 The delicate hand carving, and perfectly patina paint finish,
give it an aged look.

 If you love cane beds, then this one comes in both sizes, and can be ordered
in just a headboard as well.
Again the paint finish gives it an original look of an antique.
 Introducing part of my new line of curtain panels, the linen layered petticoat curtain.
This curtain panel has a vintage edge ruffle, done in a very faded light natural linen, with alternating stripe linen peeking through.
These are all made to order, and take about 2 weeks time.
They can be viewed here Full Bloom Cottage Curtains.

More to come this week, please come back and visit us soon, 
as we are
introducing more beautiful linens this
