French Love

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share a few things that I found that bring the french look to my home.

Recently, while on a trip to Scott's Antique Market in Atlanta, I found this European license plate.  I was so excited when I spotted it!


I hung it on the wire basket above my refrigerator.  I love the black and white graphics of it.

Can you believe it was only $6?  I didn't know you could find anything that cheap at Scott's!


As many of you know, I receive daily emails from Wuslu.  They have some good deals.  I bought this set of french cushions and found new homes for them.

I put this one in my chair in the family room. 
It was sold as a set of 2.  I placed the other cushion in an old basket in my foyer.  The wire basket that was there moved to another location. 
I love the grey and cream color scheme of these cushions.
The wire basket that used to be in the foyer moved into the sitting room.  I decided to put the vintage leather suitcase in there as well. 
I tell ya, things don't stay in one place too long around here!  Ha!
So there you have it.  Just a touch of french in some new places in my home.  Now, I wish I had taken French in school instead of Spanish.  Then I could read all of this stuff! 
Thanks for stopping by!

I bought two sets of those pillows from WUSLU...love that site!! I used the two small ones as cushions on a bench in my dining room and the bigger two propped in chairs. I have got to get back to Scotts, I love it there!!

Love your license plates and pillows. I think changing things around makes take re-notice of them and they don't get old that way. We look at them and actually "see" them-xo Diana

I love that wire basket on top of your fridge, Kelly! What a great size that is! Love the tall wire one, too, by the chest. I think I skipped the one from Antique Farmhouse {is it this one?} because I have an idea for using it, but I'm not onto that project yet. I hate having to move things out of my way until I get to their project!

The license plate is so cool and I love how you have it attached to that basket {I a loving wire baskets lately!}. Your cushions are fabulous, I went to the website when you last shared it and found some neat things! Love how you have arranged all of your treasures...that's the fun of collecting!

XO,
Jane

Oh I'm with you on the speaking French. I really wish I understood just some of it. All your new touches and updates really look pretty. I especially love the suitcase on the dresser.

I was at Scotts this weekend, too. Thursday to be exact -and you are right about thinking nothing would be six dollars. I bought some confit pots that were out front of building two. Did you see them?

I love all things french and like all your changes. Your picture and title pulled me right in. Could you come to my house and move things around? I need your eye!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I do love everything, the plate is so neat and $6.00 isn't alot at all for it! Beautiful pillows too, love where you have them!

Bliss said...

Saw a leather suitcase like that today shopping at Good Will. They wanted $85 dollars... AT GOOD WILL!!! And your pillows have inspired me; I picked up a white cushion at IKEA for my redone highchair, and I think I should stencil something French on it to match the other graphics.

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

Sounds like something I do all the time. It is fun to move things around, seeing how different they can look in a new space. I love the tall wire basket - great shape and size. I could absolutely use that in my study.
