European Buying Trip {Première Partie}

I’m so very excited to share some pics from my recent buying trip to Europe that my wonderful hubby took along the way. This is one of the rare times I will post pics of myself, but I love the way Joel shot me doing what I love. To see even more from our adventures head over to My French Country Home where Sharon has posted more of the scenic part of our trip! So much beauty!

So here is a quick photo tour of our journey across the beautiful countryside of France. Entering the gates of our home away from home…that of the Santoni FamilyJEM_0813

We went to so many dealers and country fairs it would have been next to impossible to capture every aspect of our journey….but here is a glimpse. JEM_0446 That’s me, getting in every nook and cranny to see what can be found!  JEM_0368 JEM_0381 JEM_0399 JEM_0402 JEM_0412 JEM_0438 JEM_0448And sometimes you gotta climb ladders to get the one (or 20) you want!  JEM_0458 JEM_0491 JEM_0495  We took time to stop at beautiful churches (there’s at least one in every village) and we were always excited to see the ones with the doors open welcoming anyone to come in and admire the beauty within. JEM_0541 JEM_0548 JEM_0549     I can’t hardly express how lucky we felt to come home to this house everyday after a long day of pickin’…It is even more magical in person! JEM_0667 JEM_0642 Unloading a truck full of goodies into Sharon’s barn and driveway was an experience all on it’s own…. JEM_0680 2 JEM_0687 JEM_0688 JEM_0690 JEM_0692 JEM_0697 JEM_0701 Joel loved taking Gibby on walks up to see Sharons horses and all the beauty surrounding their home…JEM_0715 JEM_0717 JEM_0750 JEM_0791 JEM_0886 JEM_0899 JEM_0916 JEM_0923 We met so many friends along the way…JEM_0924 JEM_0928 JEM_0929 JEM_0955 And shopped in the most beautiful places I could ever imagine.JEM_0977 JEM_0982 JEM_0984 JEM_1003 JEM_1005 Drooled over gorgeous chateau’s hiding in the trees…JEM_1022 Stopped at the most beautiful places for lunch JEM_1041 and got right back to the pickin’ JEM_1064 JEM_1073 JEM_1078 JEM_1083 JEM_1109 JEM_1118 JEM_1136 JEM_1158 always finding time to stop and smell the beautiful flowers along the way. JEM_1166 At the end of every day we would unload the truck and photograph all of the finds of the day….and yes, this is one days worth!  JEM_1184 JEM_1210 JEM_1212 JEM_1219 And most days ended in a celebratory glass of champgne….When in France!JEM_1237

And the next day we would head right back out to new and fabulous places full of amazing things….JEM_1352 JEM_1335 JEM_1337 JEM_1343

Seriously though….JEM_1561 Loved all of the stores full of amazing piecesJEM_1620 And made lots of new friends I can’t wait to get back to visit! JEM_1623 You don’t find antiique stores like this in our neck of the woods! JEM_1627 JEM_1650 Joel wasn’t with me for the first four days of the journey, but he did have the pleasure (maybe not the word he would use) of going back to all of the places I had bought from and barns I had stored all of my treasures to pick everything up….JEM_1693 JEM_1857 JEM_1864

On our second to the last night in Normandy we stayed at this beautiful chateau near the next days flea market in Amiens. A day I will never forget. Heading there at o’dark thirty and spending our last day tackling the ten sqaure miles of a city that shuts down the streets for this fair….pure heaven! JEM_1942 JEM_1921 JEM_1947 Gotta have lots of bags to load smalls in along the way, because one of my least favorite things to do is waste time going back and forth to the car and to pick things up! I just like to keep moving forward! JEM_1959 Not a bad backdrop for shopping, right? JEM_1966 JEM_2019 JEM_2022 I had bought this cart from a dealer knowing it would be the perfect way for us to load things up in Amiens. Luckily Joel is an amazingly supportive husband who loaded this thing to the max time after time and took it back to the truck to unload, and meet back up with us to load it up again. JEM_2039

ImageThis last picture is of my favorites, taken by Joel on his phone. It was the end of our last day, our final hours of shopping in a little piece of heaven on earth and I couldn’t get enough! The rain didn’t bother me. The shopping all day on 4 hours sleep, no big deal. The thought of leaving this place, however, was not easy! I just love it all so much. The thrill of finding beautiful things and bringing them back to be appreciated by so many…I never get sick of it. I get butterflies on my way to every flea market, every dealer, every purchase…..I love it, and because of this, know I am doing exactly what I should be.

Thanks for making it through this entire post! And to think, this is only part one!

Oh, and if you would like an inside look at one of my favorite warehouses we visited, check out this GoPro video Joel shot!

Mondayvation…Homey

I am so very excited to share this post with you all! It is a little bit different than our normal wedding and event related posts, but near and dear to my heart all the same. About 2 years ago our house was featured in Flea Market Style and shortly there after, I received an email from one of the sweetest people I have ever met, asking if I would consider decorating her house. She wanted my help bringing a little personality and coziness into her home. I was thrilled at the idea, and after meeting with her in person, I was excited to take on the project. I was given creative freedom, and after a couple months of buying and having pieces made, I installed everything over one weekend while the family went away (per my request).  Joel came down a couple weeks later to take pictures of everything for me….What do you think?Comfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage RentalsComfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage Rentals

I had Joel take family photos of them because I think having beautiful photos of your family up on the wall is crucial. Not only does it give your home personality, but I think it completes a warm and inviting space as well.  Comfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage Rentals  Comfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage RentalsComfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage RentalsxAnna Tichon Media + Inventory Coordinator       Site・Instagram・Pinterest ・Newsletter  714.888.5811 201 West Truslow Avenue Fullerton, California 92832Comfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage RentalsComfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage RentalsComfy home styled by Jeni Maus of Found Vintage Rentals

I have always loved decorating. Even as a little girl I was very particular about how my room was set up, what color my bedding was, and the accessories atop my dresser. Then as an adult when I started buying antiques for my own home, I realized that old pieces with history and patina can add so much character and comfort to any space. I am so thankful for this beautiful family that started out as clients, and quickly became friends. Thank you, Michelle, for welcoming me into your home, and Happy Birthday (today)!!!

I love my job!

Check out the entire home tour on Style Me Pretty Living! Such an honor!

Come on in…

I have been SO excited to share this! Our house in a magazine! What!!!! A dream come true, and I am so completely honored to be in a magazine that I admire so much!

How it all happened: I was contacted by Heather Bullard to use some of my furniture for a photo shoot for Flea Market Style about a year ago. She is absolutely FANTASTIC, & we hit it off immediately. On one of her visits to the studio she asked if we knew of any great houses to shoot & Allison quickly shouted out “Jeni & Joels!” So we hopped in her car and drove up to the house (since it is only a mile away from the studio) and the whole ride I was thinking “did I wash the dishes from breakfast this morning, did the kids put their shoes away”…..I don’t know why I was worried, Heather is absolutely wonderful and completely down to earth! She saw past the shoes on the floor and cereal bowls in the sink & said she would love to shoot our house! Luckily, I had a couple of months to get some little things completed, (small things on the extremely long list of things I would still love to do) & in February my fabulous hubby, Heather and Ki (yes, the Ki Nassauer) spent four wonderful days styling and taking pictures of our house! It was an amazing experience, and I am so excited to see it in print. Let me know what you think!

Here are just a few of the spreads….GO out and get a copy to see the whole article! Heather and Ki wanted to add some “pops of color” into our house as it is normally a monotone pallette of white, gray, black & brown.  There is some variation from how we live everyday (ie:we have a white couch: this one was nabbed from my inventory)…I still hope you enjoy this little window into our world :)

This second article in the magazine was also shot in our backyard with my dear friends as the models :) We had a great time, and all the kids LOVED sampling s’mores when we were done shooting!

So run out right now and grab yourself a copy of Flea Market Style Magazine! There is SO much information packed inside, and a plethera of ideas for fun ways to decorate with vintage treasures. Then drop me a line and let me know what you think, I would love to hear from you!!!
