A French Country Spring

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A French Country SpringSpring has finally arrived and I am excited, not only because it’s my favorite season, but because I am am joining a group of my fellow Francophiles to bring you a little peek into our homes…French Country style! Much of the rest of my house is filled with Easter bunnies and colored eggs in anticipation of the furry fellow’s visit to my little grands. But…I have reserved the breakfast room just for my style!  And nothing says French Country to me more than lots of texture and rustic touches!

  1. Debbie, the vignette is beautiful...I so love seeing your beautiful collection of Quimper. And, yes, Seymour is huge...I remember buying my very first amaryllis when I was in Florida...after Christmas I placed it on the bottom shelf of the potting bench and forgot about it...all of a sudden I am seeing something red peeking through the was blooming...and I had totally neglected it...maybe I need to do that will all my plants!..:)
    Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter...enjoy your family!!!

  2. Debbie, such a pretty centerpiece! Your eating area is so inviting and lovely. And even an Amaryllis loves Spring! ha!
    Have a blessed Easter!

  3. Debbie - I love every detail, but think the tulips wrapped in sheet music are my favorite! Such a great detail. Happy Easter!! xo

  4. Debbie, how fun to have a collection you picked up yourself in France. I have always loved the charm of Quimper pottery. And those lambs...I am always on the hunt for one myself.

  5. Love it all Debbie, and now I'm off to check on your wreath! Great to party with you today.

  6. Debbie, love your beautifully styled French vignette and yes, tulips definitely say spring. I just wish they lasted much longer! Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!

  7. Debbie, I love your centerpiece with the beautiful and timeless lamb. Of course, your Quimper is timelessly attractive! Funny about your monster amaryllis. Like many other plants this past winter, I guess nature just took a few side roads on its path. Happy Spring and Easter!

  8. Debbie, I love your sweet little lambs. I think I need to add lambs to my vintage shopping list. Your table vignette is to die for. Very pretty. Have a happy Easter!

  9. Debbie, your centerpiece vignette is just wonderful! I've been trying to add more rusticity to my home and I love how you've encapsulated it here. The lamb is fabulous!! I also love the kraft paper music sheet... :-)

    Have a Happy Easter!!

  10. Debbie, your home all dressed for Easter is just beautiful! I'm especially fond of the lambs...they are a weakness of mine as well, and so representative of this special time of the year! Happy Easter!
