I feel so fortunate that we have a new Farmer's Market here right by the house every Thursday now. It is so nice to have fresh French bread, fruit and veggies. This week both kids went with me and they had to taste everything before they made their choices. It was fun to watch them decide which peaches and grapes they prefered. We typically will have fruit, bread and cheese with wine on these nights for dinner so we can enjoy how fresh everything is.
I also fell in love with my new linens that came in for the shop... love the rainbow accent on these hand towels so much fun!
Some days more than others I feel very inspired.. In remodeling my own kitchen I have found that I am very inspired by the look of vintage display cabinets. I am assuming that many of the pieces I have seen and saved images away of are vintage shop cabinets- much like this one from France. These pieces make me smile inside.. they remind me of some of my other French favorites. As I am sure you know if you have read the blog for a little while I am completely obsessed with Vintage French goodies as well as some new French goodies too.
Thank you to Vicki at French Essence for posting about her kitchen and her dishes yesterday, you got my wheels spinning and reminded me I need to make a wish list of dishes for my next trip to France in the spring... So here are a few of my favorites for the kitchen and a little French Inspiration.
of course it has my dishes and the color of the room is to die for...
I have been busy cleaning out around here and one thing that had to be handled was the piles and piles of magazines. I have pulled out so many wonderful images, I cannot wait to start sharing them with you!
I am planning a little afternoon tea with my girls to work on our trip to Paris in the spring for next week. I am so excited to go back! I simply love it there... Have you been? We are thinking of staying in an apartment for the week... any recommendations? I love the 1st Arr. so I am trying to find something there.
Not to mention my love for these dishes I plan on picking some up while in town also!
