Thus we became regulars at Pierre Deux's Third Avenue shop, carrying home golden toile seat cushions, le Cordon Bleu silver napkin rings, and fleur-de-lis print pillows. I now admit in retrospect we went a little overboard, but my mother was the one who really fed the Francophile fire shipping us fleur-de-lis tiles for the kitchen and-- what still remains one of my favorite pieces--a blue ceramic fleur-de-lis tile mirror. That was over seven years ago and since my husband and I moved in together, we've (read: he) have been phasing out some of our French country decor. However, I'm still holding onto some of the pieces. Here they are in our apartment in Charlottesville.
