Summer's List......

                              Have you got a "FLEA MARKET WISH LIST" this summer....
                         I sure do...it starts with some antique cutting boards...oh I just adore them....
               then there is the french linen & grain sack trend I just can't seem to get enough of...
                                  I would love to find an old fruit crate....
                              check one thing off my list...got my old wine crate !!!
                            Always on the look out for tin signs....the more rustic the better...
                            love the old pots too...saw one on the weekend but did not get it....kicking myself now..but I did get a couple of things of my list.....care to guess ????   Talk soon, Chrissy x0x0
                  ALL IMAGES FROM VINTAGE WEAVE......A.K.A. HEAVEN ON EARTH

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!

Sweet smell & some wonderful news....

                               Well  hello there...hope everyone is enjoying there day!!!   The lilacs are in full bloom....about 3 weeks early but thats o.k with me.....I have some in almost every room of the house.......what a sweet flower they are!
                           Not only do they smell like heaven but they add that little pop of colour that just makes every room come alive.....been thinking alot about adding some colour lately..leaning towards bits and pieces of red.....mmmmmmm...
                     Oh and I found this cute little spice pot..I have always wanted one....now for those of you who follow me I must tell you..Meg left for Haiti on Sunday night and we just got word that she is there safe and sound ....I miss like mad already and she just left..going to be a long month!!!  Thanks so much for stopping by....my camera just died on me (right after I took these) so I will have to get another...cheap and cheerful one on the weekend!  x0x0x
