~A Few French Finds~

I was lucky enough to attend an awesome sale last weekend that was a room filled with the loveliest items all from France.  What a lucky lady to be able to travel there and purchase wonderful frenchy finds to bring back and sell.  That would be a dream come true for me. 

My favorite purchase was this galvanized drying rack that came with these lovely little bottles.   If only I had room for it, but unfortunately I just don't so it along with some of my other finds will be heading up to my booth at Monticello's in the morning to hopefully find a new home:-)

Another great galvanized piece was this little pie safe which would look great sitting on a kitchen counter filled with ironstone.  I can never pass up these tags with numbers and was excited to find some music cards along with a metal egg basket.

The stacking baskets will reside in my bedroom since I've been looking for some for a while now and I have some plans for the french papers I purchased, but these look great sitting anywhere  in your home.

I hope everyone has a nice weekend and I will be linking up with these lovely ladies:

    I sure wish I could have brought back more than I did from France last April. sigh.

  37. your buys are all fantastic and will probably be sold at your place before you can even sit them down. My favorite is the tin pie safe. We found one very similar while antiquing outside Chicago. Bought it for my D-I-L's kitchen counter. I want it! Hope you are having a great week!
