Hello Dear Readers!
Recently, the wonderful Loi of Tone On Tone published a post
about his most gorgeous shop in Bethesda, Maryland, Tone On Tone.
A shop that he has owned for 15 years and he had made the difficult
decision to close his shop and concentrate more on his interior design business.
I was there not too long ago and as always fell in love with all of his
beautiful antiques . . . from the furniture, to the clocks, to the mirrors,
and the gorgeous accessories. Now, he has placed his beautiful items on sale.
There was one item in particular that I fell in love with.
I will show you some photos that I took (with my iPhone) when I was there last
and maybe you can guess which piece is coming home with me.
A Birthday gift from my hubby to cover the next 10 years … or more!
Let’s start with this amazing French circa 1750 marriage/wedding armoire.
The carvings on this armoire are magnificent.
Loi always had magnificent Mora clocks in his shop.
And you know Loi is famous for his spectacular topiaries.
They have been beautifully featured in many magazines, such as Martha Stewart Living.
Pretties in every inch of the shop.
Loi has the most amazing collection of ironstone in the most immaculate condition.
I love the way he styles his shelves….truly a work of art!
Can you guess which piece is my birthday gift for the next 10 years?
Yes . . . it’s that magnificent Circa 1750 French armoire.
After I read Loi’s post, I called him and asked if that gorgeous armoire
was still in his shop …. it was! . . . and the rest is history.
I cannot wait to go and pick up that beauty!
I wish you all a most beautiful day and stay tuned
this coming Friday for Floral Friday … and the announcement of the winner of
Nora Murphy’s Country Home Style book.
