The name of the Jeanne D'Arc Living book is Franske Stemminger by Vivian Christensen and Lonnie Wurtz Jensen....FABULOUS!(Of course it is in Danish which isn't a problem for me as its all about the pics!) I ordered mine from Carol at Raised in Cotton.....maybe Carole from Maynard Greenhouse carries it too??? I'll ask her! Have fun shopping today!
Be well, Laura

Chrissy,

I stopped by earlier and wanted to comment, but I got booted off the puter~
Everything looks just beautiful! I need shelves like the ones in your pictures to display all the stuff I've been making~

Barb said...

Love the shelf in the top pic.

Blessings and thanks for having fresh things for us.

Bonjour Madame said...

You know the more I see and study your pictures the elements of this design is so appealing. And it looks like it can be created for not that much money as the elements are basically simple, white palette, burlap, old iron, weathered wood. I love it all and may try to redo my kitchen inexpensively using some of these elements. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Chrissy,
Love those images too. I know the first time I saw them on a swedish blog I couldn't stop looking at more and more of it. I'll go tomorrow and find out the price of shipping for you. I see that Laura figured out that they came from the book which I don't carry. It was awfully nice of her to mentioned I had the mag. though. She's a sweety and a good friend.
Take care,
Carole

Thank you so much for popping by and checking on me ....so sweet : )

I've been so crazy busy lately .....all week and weekend ...I didn't even get a chance to check my emails since Friday or even look at blogs for a couple of weeks. The "three darlings" had "three" tournaments over the weekend in "three" different municipalities and "the hubby" was working !! It meant three crazy 12 hour days with me driving around like a lunatic LOL.

Needless to say two of my darlings were sick today so they needed some more TLC.

I was sooooo envious of you going on a trip to the beach with your hubby!! ... Was it as lovely as I imagined ?

The next two weekends I've got two more tournaments. I totally miss blogging and hopefully will be able to find a bit of time to post later this week.

Take care
Hugs
Bre

PS ... just loved the crown vignette with the bird's nest in it!
