J'aime vintage linen


As you all know, I do not normally post on a Sunday but felt that I just had to share these photos with you.

I adore vintage french linen and am fortunate enough to be living in a country where there is still a lot of it around.

Infact I bought an antique chandelier recently which arrived in a fabulous antique table cloth so I washed it and ironed it and it looks fabulous.


Isn't this tree fabulous? I really like it.


I am a big fan of items with embroidery on them, I think that it has timeless appeal.
I have had some draft stoppers made for the shop which are made in Provence and they have the most gorgeous embroidery on them. I will being showing you some photos of them this week.


I think that these decorations are my favourite as I love the variety of fabrics that have been used, all of which are gorgeous.


The individual noel decorations are pretty but you would have to hang them near to one another to get the full effect.




I love this stocking and it is quite similar to some linen wine bags that I will be stocking in my online boutique.

Enjoy your sunday, here it has turned very cold so it is perfect weather for being indoors.


A demain,

  5. French linen is perfect for so many things. I especially like your small embroidered Noel heart. I'm getting in the mood for Christmas!
