French Feel...

                           Good morning!  I was in the mood for a little french today...
                             so I got out my cutting boards....(they are all the rave)
                              some white jugs and silver spoons....
                                   my favorite marmalade jar...some cloves
                           toss in some sunshine and I'm finished...
                           It's so easy to keep things fresh and interesting..with so much inspiration out there at our finger tips ...and you don't even need to spend a cent..just use things you already have...who knew!?!?!?    Have a great day....Chrissy

Simple Pleasures...

                         Hello to all of you....hope your long weekend was a good one...
                                      When I got up this morning the sun was shining...the birds were singing..the house was quiet..so I thought what better time to do a few fresh kitchen vignettes!
                                So I gathered up a few of my favorite things...some tiny white cafe au lait bowls..some old silverware...even some good old fashion wooden spoons .....          
                             nothing fancy...everything useful....         
                         I love the pop of colour you get from a few fresh herbs....
                   I also love a great hand soap in the kitchen....this one smells as wonderful as it looks!.Well I am off to see what else needs sprucing up....I'd love for you to leave me a note to let me know you've come by!  See you soon!                                                      x0  Chrissy

Prepare yourself....


                    Hope your sitting down.......cause the photos you are about to see will make you weak in the knees....ready....
                      Talk about being gobsmacked....the site is called Vintage Weave
             I do suggest you make a cup of tea and give yourself at least half and hour or so.....
                  because once you start looking its hard to stop......the only sad thing is the prices are very high...out of range I would think for must of us....
                       but oh what a pleasure it is to dream........
                              This drying rack is my favorite...I so want one of these...
                                 and one of these......ahhhhhh maybe one day!!! Let me know what you think of the site.....enjoy! Love to all of you!

The Beauty of Paper.....

                                       Pages torn out of old books taped to rough walls...
                                           
                                             old love letters on the mantle....
                                             spices wrapped and tied.....
                                                   postcards sent a lifetime ago...
                                                  they are all beautiful...and I for one could not decorate without them.Hope you all have a wonderful day....I am so glad you took the time to stop by...xoxo

Great Kitchen Finds....

                                      Hi ....hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! Just thought I would show you a couple of neat things I have found over the past few weeks....my #33 stool was the best deal ever...$119 marked down to.........$24....let me tell you I did my happy dance when I saw that tag!!!!
                                 Then I found this old street sign at an antique market place...I have always wanted one of these...its dated 1878....and the best part of it ....the price $20......whhheeeeeeeee!!!
                                            Love finding treasures that I can afford.....
                                            Even the smallest of things can make my heart sing..like my little cafe au lait bowls.....for just $1 each...
                                           how sweet are they!?!  Thats about it for now..counting the days till spring arrives....take care and stay warm...x0x0
