I'm not French. I may not be fabulous... and I'm certainly not junk. My name is Amanda Townsend and I am a wife, mother, secretary, and part-time decorator. I have an affinity for pre-loved, distressed, flagrantly French Decor. I get most of my decorative items from yard sales, thrift stores, and e-bay.
I have created this blog to share my ideas, design projects, and creative re-purposing of thrift store finds. I don't consider myself green, per se... but if pink can be called the new green, then I'll let you call me green. I do love items that have a history and a story. Awesome textures, faded hues, and scratches in finishes are things that catch my eye. It's a constant battle with my spouse, who prefers rustic, cabin decor... but I think I am like Charlie Sheen, "WINNING!!!"
I intend to share pictures of my own home on a regular basis. My reason for doing this is two-fold. One - is to inspire you to create beauty in your own home (even if it is by my standards). Two- to inspire me to keep my house clean. I am nothing, if not honest. I love to decorate... I do NOT love to clean. At some point in the near future I intend to hire a housekeeper. I would also appreciate an assitant to help me complete the projects in a more timely fashion. However, for the time being... consider yourself my assistant. Your comments checking my progress will be answered and appreciated. I will be posting my latest goodwill finds in the next few days. I am selling things on e-bay - Fabulous French Junk.
