I am a passionate treasure huntress addicted to "the thrill of the hunt." I pride myself on finding unique items and have spent a lifetime collecting unusual and interesting "treasures" which I have used in decorating our home. I shop with an eye for design and look for pieces that I like to call the "jewelry" of the room. Those pieces that have been around accumulating energy thereby bringing life into a space by telling its story or evoking a memory. The allure is found in the details of its journey... condition, provenance and patina. Our collected "treasures" tell the story of who we are. Billy Baldwin said it best, "Decorating is never successful unless it is personal." My treasures are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop and on my companion blog, Shop La Dolfina. The links can be accessed from my sidebar.
"All of life is about energy. It's about the energy that you're putting out; energy that you're drawing to yourself, every day, based on the way you think about your life & the actions that you take. Everybody is an energy field. And because of your attitude, your thinking, your actions; who you choose to be in the world, forms your own field. You are drawing into your field people who are like you... to remind you, to show you, to reflect back to you- who you are. Believe that or not, that is what is happening all the time... and it does not require your belief. It just is. It. Just. Is." -Oprah
This is so beautiful! And, yes, once we have our homes ready, why not have guests so they can enjoy everything along with you?
Your table looks amazing-I think I would just sit and stare at everything if I were there. We're having a girls night out tomorrow noght-dont know if that counts as entertaining!
Oh Terri, you know how I love those glasses they are favorites of mine. Your table looks amazing!!xo Kathysue
I love your table! I spend this week recovering from all the mayhem! xoxo Beth
I spend this week free-associating! I feel it's a good time to look at the bigger picture.
Very pretty table Terri, here the week seems quiet, alot of people have taken the week off work. Children seeing friends, we sleep in late, simple meals. Good to relax.
Your table setting is gorgeous! We spent last night with a couple that we've been trying to get together with for the longest time. I love the days between Christmas and New Year's.
What a lovely setting.
I have enjoyed my time off, spending time at the countryside, reading my favorite blogs, studying food, fashion and interior trends for 2011, enjoying the city, hitting the sales (I left Husband home, otherwise it wouldn't have been fun for neither of us...)...
New Year we will spend on countryside (though only 25 min from Helsinki) with friends. Looking forward to it, we always have he best time together.
Absolutely LOVE your dining room and table setting - just beautiful!! I have the same blue goblets that I inherited from my mother still in boxes - reminds me that I must unearth them - they look lovely!!
I'm knee deep in dust bunnies.
Would be honored to sit at your table and dine.
happy new year

Your table looks so lovely. How lucky anyone would be to be a guest of your's. I love this week between XMas and NY. Everything is at a slower pace and its the perfect time to get together with friends.
Your table is beautiful! I just love what you did...
We are up in Montana this week spending time with our families.
Have a wonderful week!
Happy New Year!
One of my MOST favorite things to do, and I don't do it nearly often enough, is to have a small group over for dinner. I love the sharing of good food, wine and conversation of substance, as well as lots of laughter throughout the evening.
Your table looks absolutely lovely. Thanks for sharing!
What did you serve? Beautiful photo.......what is hanging over the buffet?
That's your table setting? DAMN is that gorgeous!! You've got some talent there!
Happy Wednesday Darling! xo
I'm doing a perfume giveaway right now if you're interested!

There is nothing better than entertaining. Feeding people & seeing the smiles on their faces as you share in each others company...simply the best. What a visual treat you put together for them. The table is just gorgeous!
