I love fall…and frenchiness…and antiquing! Sooo…you can imagine how much fun I had heading out with my friend Linda from Nina’s Nest with a little of all three in mind! And since our Goodwill hunting netted nothing, we made a stop at our favorite antiques and interiors shop…the Queen of Hearts in Alpharetta, Georgia where we can always count on some inspiration! One of these finds came home with me! Can you figure out which one? First, look at this fabulous frenchy two piece armoire…love it! Now...I just need a bigger house!
And…I love this secretary! Look at those fabulous lines and those mirrored doors...gorgeous! I am picturing it painted and slightly distressed...and I’m not usually one to paint furniture.
Here’s a dresser that is already painted…looks like some Annie Sloan colors to me. You have got to love the lines on this one…fabulously frenchy!
Also frenchy…this wonderful French couple in the form of candlesticks! I have a thing for provincial costumes…and pairs…so I love them!
More provincial costumes…are you beginning to see that I photograph in patterns?…then throw in some farm animals! I love the idea of framing these vintage cheese labels mounted on ticking! And…goats are a special favorite of mine…I want one!
And who can resist this vintage-looking bull decorating a wooden bowl? The bull is huge and so is the bowl!
And what search for frenchiness would be complete without a rooster? I haven’t seen this particular grain sack in red…fun! And you might recognize it because I showed you my version here!
And I was also happy to see some favorites of mine are still going strong! Love the mercury glass pumpkins…or is it a gourd?
And Santos cage dolls are still popular! Great…
…because I love mine…a little less primitive and always the star of my Christmas decorations! To see more of last year’s Christmas tour click here.
And we can’t forget fall…with these great felted wool acorns…
…and these acorns made of birch bark and pussy willows…so different!
I love this fabulous chippy urn! Just add more Indian corn, some pumpkins and gourds and maybe a few deer sheds…perfect for fall!
Speaking of deer, I love this vintage clock! It just says fall to me!
And now for a little fun…a little wooden pumpkin man sitting on a little chair! He wants to know…which of these things actually jumped in my car and came home with me? What do you think?
If you guessed the frenchy candle stick couple, you are right! Don’t they look fabulous with my Quimper plates? To see more of my collection, click here. Sometimes things just have to come home with someone who will love and appreciate them, don’t you think? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!
