French treasures

I loved visiting Amy at her Charlotte's Brocante sale last friday...!!! She is the sweetest gal and a kindred soul who loves pink just like me!!! The treasures she brought back from France were absolutely adorable, and a huge crowd cleaned her little shop to the bone in a little over an hour...!! I came home with some wonderful treasures, and can't wait to put them to great use!!!

... I am absolutely in love with this vintage fabric valance....

... just as I am with this quilted toile one...

... a super sweet little collapsible fabric basket...

... awesome vintage hemp towels...

... a great big fabric covered box... Did it hold chocolate bonbons?

... old metal stencils...

... and finally fabric yardage of grey ticking...

Okay, so the next item is not vintage (it isn't French, either!), but it is pink, and I couldn't resist sharing it! I bought it at TJ Maxx, and I love it!!!

My sweet friend Lisa is having an awesome giveaway to celebrate her 300th blog post!! She made the cutest tote bag with vintage lace, and it come with a surprise inside!!! Make sure you visit her blog for a chance to win this wonderful prize!!


  1. Oh awesome stuff you got. Pink Salt?? Ok is there a reason for the salt to be pink??

  2. Great finds Isabel. I love the curtain. We just got a new salt store in town here. They have so many different kinds of salts. The pink being the most popular.
