Finding French Country Style

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Finding French Country StyleYou know I love this! Nestled among all of the wonderful links shared at The Scoop this week, I found more than a dozen fabulous French-inspired ways to add some French Country style to your home! Magnifique! I couldn't wait until my usual Saturday post to share them!
