French Farmhouse Finds, and Happy Thanksgiving


Hello!
I just wanted to do a quick post today.....
I just wanted to show a sneak peek of a few french farmhouse finds that will be available in the shop soon.....
I am sorry I haven't been able to get new items up on the site yet...
Thankfully I was able to hire my sister in law Nancy to help me load items to the site this week....
Our vintage french farmhouse items will be available for purchase this weekend.....


I love this vintage french blue bucket.....


I thought it would be perfect for holding a miniature Christmas tree during the holidays.......
The white fir Christmas tree came from Aimee at the Antique Gardener....
Thank you Aimee!


This vintage zinc milk jug is one of my favorite finds....
It's a bit rusty and worn, however I love it...
I grew up on a small dairy in Montana and I can't tell you how much I LOVE vintage milk jugs.....
They always bring back childhood memories.....


I also want to say thank you to everyone for being so patient with me during this time of the year...
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your patience during the holiday season as it is just my 18 year old daughter, Nicole and I working in the shop....
Nicole does all of the shipping labels and often times helps me pack orders in the evenings.....

Love you Nicole! 

***************************************


I also just wanted to say 
Happy Thanksgiving!
These are pictures I took last year.....
My in laws were here visiting so we got to enjoy an evening dinner at this table...
It was a dinner we will all never forget...
I think my father in law thought I had lost my mind.....
This old french door on sawhorses doesn't make the sturdiest table, but I love how it looks....
My husband and father in law were worried it was going to fall apart on us.....
and it didn't : )


I had found these vintage french baker cups and decided to fill them with flax seed....






We will also have vintage grain sack runners back in stock on Monday.....



I hope  you all have a great Thanksgiving!

Take Care,
Maria

Happy Thanksgiving! And what a wonderful idea to use the vintage baking cups as candle holders... especially since I have numerous vintage American mini bundt pans and popover tins that I collect.

Once again Happy Thanksgiving!

That tree looks like it belonged in the blue bucket all along! It looks stunning. Lovely images.

Carole said...

I love that blue bucket as well. Such a pretty vignette. And such a lovely, yet simple, table setting. I'm all about natural and simple these days. :-)

Alicia Conway said...

The best design I've ever seen! If I had such an appartment/house I would never leave it. It's so calming and still. I guess that all the stresses of the day fade away when you come home. Great!

The mass cheap gucci handbags media has had a big shock on working the mindset of people. The garishness chanel classic bag and enchant that surrounds renown's sporting fashion hermes bag outlet has connived the populace to adopt similar louis vuitton monogram canvas
