Vintage French Wine Crate....

                     Oh how I love flea market season....to find an old , well used treasure is so much more exciting than buying new..don't you think?  
                          Like this old french wine crate I spotted last weekend...I was afraid it was going to be out of  my budget but for $20 I knew it was MINE !!!!
                   For now it holds some of my favorite linens and tea towels on the island..but I can picture it full of many things...flowers...spices....herbs...bottles....
                 Whatever it holds I love it.....hope your day is filled with things that make you happy!

I would say it is a great find Chrissy. I have a similar box, but not early as lovely. It has held everything over the past 20 years, I never tire of it. Enjoy yours!

ooohhh! It's perfect! We don't really have flea markets here so I'm always jealous when I see all the neat things people find.

Happy Spring!

This crate is about as awesome as you can get. It was MADE to be in your lovely home....looks just like you. The photos are magazine worthy...needs to be in a beautiful french magazine.
