    I loved your wish list!
    Especially the French commode, and the little black desk to do your blogging ~ wonderful!

    I hope that you are having a wonderful Wednesday.


  7. Great taste. Timeless. I do think that all of us gals are in love with the Timeless not so much of the Trendiness. Love all of them Millie. Heidi

  8. Yes please, I'll have one of each too! Gorgeous, gorgeous antiques. Lee :)

  9. It will be most difficult to buy these without that operational cc Millie ;)....xv

  10. Hi Millie
    Just that first french grey commode will do me..gorgeous. in fact I think you have inspired me to makeover my La Maison french commode. Wish me luck.. haha if it doesn't work out i'll let you know!

    Nearly did a MOTH.. i thought i had an amount on my card I didn't make.. was just about to call the bank and thought...stop! what did MOTH do... of course then I found I knew which shop it was.. hahaha MOTH and your post saved me from certain embrassment. Have fun with those roos xx Julie

  11. Oooh, I'd like the commode, the scales, the supier, the desk.... ok.... I'll have one of each.

  12. I would be fighting you for the chemist's scales and rocking horse, Millie! Abd I am very impressed you are thinking about Christmas food already!

  13. I love the Georgian Book bureau and Library table, I can imagine them in a private library with well worn tomes of ancient paper and the smell of comfortable leather chairs and red wine.... David.x

Without a quickening of the heart.
