Beautiful Segreto Vignettes

My wonderful and multi talented friend, Leslie Sinclair, has once again written a fabulous book that is a must have for anyone who enjoys creating a lovely home.


I had truly enjoyed Secrets to Finishing Beautiful Interiors and Segreto Style and her new book, Segreto Vignettes, is just as fabulous!


Leslie is an artist who specializes in decorative paint techniques. Her company, Segreto Finishes, can create almost any amazing plaster or decorative finish that you could dream of.

This book features her recent work with some truly wonderful clients, architects and designers.

Each chapter focuses on individual finishing trends to include paint finishes for walls, floors, furniture and more.

Free Fall Printable ~TOHOT #33

Welcome to Thoughts of Home on Thursday and the first day of fall.

To thank you for your continued friendship and support here at Thoughts of Home we would like to offer you this free autumn printable. Just click on the highlighted link below.

As your hostess this week, Laura of White Spray Paint would like to invite you to join in the fun and the inspiration.
Here are this week’s features:

Pat of Life at Lydia's House does a beautiful job of upholstering a chair. Isn't it lovely?

Jody of Southern Seazons at the North Ranch created a beautiful fall vignette of fall florals and pumpkins in a tray.


Marci of Stone Cottage Adventures shares a delicious recipe for Heirloom Tomato Soup. She used tomatoes from her garden.

Tracey Lee of Mia Bella Passions shares her love of magnolias and this beautiful Black Tulip variety. Isn't it unique?
I was fascinated with the title of Jocelyn's  post "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie"-taken from the title of a book- on her blog Just a Little Southern Hospitality. Her encouragement to relax as the seasons unfold is an important one.

A Lovely Collection of Fall Home Tours

This past week my dear friend Marty of A Stroll Thru Life hosted her annual Fall Home Tour. Each and every participant provided such lovely inspiration.

I loved how Marty used gold as her autumnal accent color.

I adored Shauna’s couch and the velvet burgundy and leopard pillows were the icing on the cake. Go see the entire space at House of the Silver Lining.
