I chose the name Humble because our Bungalow is small in size and is simply decorated with finds from years of collecting.
Our furniture consists of mostly generic arts and crafts quarter sawn oak pieces...not the high end name brands. One exception is the Stickley bookcase which was a gift from my grandmother.
I am somewhat tentative showing these as I see so many beautifully arranged and decorated homes on blogs that are so magazine worthy...bear in mind that we live a simple life, our home from 1913 is mostly in it's original state with updates to the kitchen and bathroom. The floors are worn, and the woodwork on the wainscotting has seen better days.
I do not have a large space to display things but have a large collection of "stuff"
In the early years here in the Bungalow I dreamed of owning a large arts and crafts home with ample storage!
I think subconsciously I prepared myself for the move up...so I over bought and collected things for the future larger home. We never did make the move and now we have ample space for the two of us...it's our starter and our retirement home.

An arts and crafts cabinet from a local estate sale,
this early purchase necessitated budget stretching meals for awhile!

where I spend many hours...
reading and writing
power bar and cords have been moved up
as Pepper has decided that they are a tasty chew
I have omitted the family room as it is currently Pepper's kingdom
and she has toys strewn hither thither and 'yon...
also the lower level
guest room hobby room
horribly scary bathroom and laundry area
which are on my wish list for updating.
oh and to answer the question...
I ordered my French Market Basket from Victorian Trading Co.
they are online and also have a catalogue.
