'shabby chic' home
Jane Bigler was hostess for a brunch meeting of the Bezaleel Wells Chapter of Questers.
Following the meal, Bigler showed members around her home, which is decorated with garage sale finds in a style she describes as "shabby chic." She had notes placed in various spots which supported her philosophy of collecting and choosing according to what a person likes to have around.
Although she uses her sale finds artistically, such as a drying rack displaying kitchen utensils, mixed in are several family heirlooms. Among them were a Steubenville Pottery soup tureen, a Wheeling Pottery pitcher, two Toronto Pottery platters and a Weller bowl.
