A Most Unexpected Find...

                                       Happy Sunday everyone.....what a lovely day it is....
                                      did not plan to post today but could not wait to show you what I found...
                                         this awesome little french crate....as soon as I saw it I knew it was coming home with me....funny thing is I found it in a local specialty food shop....and it was not expensive at all !!!! 

                                      I love how it looks on the island....with my vintage dish rack....oh one more thing...my tag sale was a big hit...had no idea what to expect but at the end of the day I had very few things left and had made more money than I thought possible...may become a yearly event !  Enjoy your day and thank you so much for making my blog part of it! x0x0 Chrissy

The crate is wonderful!! I'm so glad you got a deal on this because I can imagine how much it could be marked up. I love your vignette inside and your island is a perfect spot for it!! Love it!

Your pictures are beautiful. It's wonderful to find something 'just right' in an unexpected place. It's like it was meant only for you. Enjoy your treasure.

I couldn't help but chuckle at your "ROT DE PARIS" photo.

Chrissy you are way to kind to me with the words of encouragment to my art and display! you my dear I idol, your photo's of beauty are like pages from a magazine one that inspires us to want to be YOU!! I could move right in and feel right at home with all you create, salvage, arrange in your life and how you let each piece tell you where it want to be :)

Thank you again Chrissy for your soulful support.
