I once heard Katie Lee say, “The kitchen is the heart of the home.”  I dropped into my feminine energy when I heard this.  It made me want to give my beloved home more attention and personal touches.

As busy women entrepreneurs, our focus can be on:  all things business.  Making time for our men and/or kids, squeezing in a workout, and sometimes meeting friends out for drinks can unfortunately happen in this order.  The last thing we tend to spend time on as working women is updating our homes.

Recently, I took time out to be in my feminine, home-making mode…and I visited Europe’s #1 ranked flea market, in of all places, Waterloo, Belgium.  We women business owners give so much of our creativity to our businesses, our clients, and to others, sometimes our home and the environment we spend the majority of our time is is what gets neglected.

NOT today!  Take this virtual tour with me as I play around with being creative for the home environment…creating true self-expression!

Remember, if you choose to go to a flea market, b-r-e-a-t-h-e.  Take. Your. Time.  See things not as they are, but as they could be.  That’s one of the miraculous powers of the feminine:  transformation.

 

A Queen can never have too many candles at home–and these candlesticks have great poise. Either enjoy them as is, or lavish them with paint.

 

Host a tea party with this colorful set. Tea parties don’t have to be something we just watch other women do in the movies!

 

A domino set for a bit of nostalgia.

 

What table wouldn’t dazzle with these?

 

My mind reels with how I could transform this darling purse.

 

Exquisite lighting adds a delicate luminosity to any room.  A fun way to dress up office space!

 

Beautiful statement pieces like these can brighten up a study area or bar cart. 

 

Be creative and transform this mirror into a tray. Depending on your style, you could paint the wood. Then use it for entertaining or a as a stationary piece on your coffee table. Add candles and stack a few exquisite books…Divine.

 

Antique Bacarat champagne glasses.  Glorious.

Ceramic oyster dishes from the ’70s.  This was my personal favorite.
