We have been doing some frenchifying…a little frenchy fluffing…here at the Plate Addict household, soooo… our co-host Baby Kitty would like to take you on a little tour…starting in the living room. Of course, you must realize that roosters are one of the must-haves for any frenchification, and so we have added this roostery Provencal tray to the coffee table. It has become the home for all of our many remotes. Notice the little check pattern which is repeated…
…in our roostery lamp! Now you must know that if I own it, it must have been a bargain, and such was the case with these two finds…a total of $16 for the two of them! That’s my collection of French cookie tins in the basket, which I will show you one day. Now…on to the dining room!
Baby Kitty and I are big fans of grapes…another requirement for any frenchification. You might remember my mom’s Red Cliff ironstone soup tureen and the wonderful candleholder (a steal at $7.00) that I found to match it while treasure hunting with my friend Linda at Nina’s Nest. Well, that was almost exactly one year ago, and I have been hunting for more of it ever since with no luck until…
…Linda and I stumbled across this Red Cliff ironstone tea pot last weekend!! Wooo hooo!! I squealed when I saw it, then tried to feign indifference…but it was too late. However, the dealer still gave me a discount. Maybe she was glad to see it go home with someone who appreciated it. I paid a little more than I normally like to (about $35), but considering that I hadn’t seen any of it at all in the last year, I was still happy. Note to self…stop squealing when you find something you love. lol
We continue the tour in the guest bedroom, where we are joined by our co-hostess, Kitty, who would like to show you the third element of our frenchification…toile. She insisted on hosting this portion of our tour because she matches the decor! lol You may remember that when you last saw this room, we were still in a quandary as to how to complete our bedscape ...a wonderful new word from Karen at Nittany Inspirations.
Well…here it is! I added a wicker headboard that I painted black and some…plates. What else? These are the lace doily plates that I found at Pier 1 a while back. Might as well put them to good use! And something else very special has been added. Do you see it?
It’s this wonderful frenchy throw pillow…a gift from my sweet friend Pat! It is the creation of Jennifer Rizzo at Sanctuary Arts. Isn’t it just gorgeous? The bedscape needed one more little something and I couldn’t figure out what it was…and this is it! Can you read it? Do you know what it says? It says…bonne nuit…
…good night! And it seems to be working! lol So there you have it…our frenchy fluffing with roosters, grapes and toile! Thanks for going on the tour with us!
