White Wednesday & My Giveaway!

Better late than never they say........and I couldn't pass up this week's event to "show and tell" about my new fantastic antique French sofa and matching chair.....I was so very fortunate to find these pieces and in their wonderful condition as well. The fabric is a silk brocade and the tufting is divine. The original tag remains on the sofa and indicates it was manufactured by the Duetsch Company in Chicago and is an original design. How something this magnificient ended up in lil' ole' Arlington, Texas amazes me, but here she is.......and I'm in LOVE.
Also, if you haven't yet participated in the sign up for my monthly giveaway by commenting this month or by actually following...think about doing that now....the soap is wonderful, even if I do say so myself. And if you want to see yet MORE beautiful whites......check my sidebar for the White Wednesday Button and visit all the blogs participating this week....you won't be disappointed, I promise!

  7. Hi Jana!
    What a lucky girl you are to find those fabulous pieces. I can't wait to see them in your home! I don't know why I never noticed it before, but I used to live in your home town! (A long time ago)
    I was just a little girl, but we lived there for 3 years. It wasn't nearly as big as it is now. My favorite memory is the huge fields of blue wildflowers (bluebells??) that used to grow all over the place! Our house backed up to a pecan orchard and the owner would let me and my mom collect as many pecans as we wanted. It was great. I remember really liking it there!
