French Vintage Finds

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, we finally had some rain and my garden is starting to perk up again.

I gave my dresser a bit of a revamp due to a few additions of some lovely French finds from the Little French shop I posted about a few weeks ago .

One of the French treasures I bought was this blue coffee pot, its such a lovely blue I just couldn't not buy it.

Next to the coffee pot is a small enamel sugar tin, I couldn't believe how well they match each other, now every time I walk past them I have a little smile on my face, I'm easily pleased.

This white enamel jug is something I have had quite a few years, when I first started collecting enamelware I could pick them up for a few pence.

My husband doesn't understand the chips and rust but men just don't seem to get it do they?

Cow Parsley or Queen Anne's Lace, a favourite of mine its becoming very popular lately and apparently we will be seeing a lot of it soon for Chelsea (looking forward to that).

This little wire basket was thrown in for free by the owner.

This is an old draw I had in the shed, I just painted it white and distressed it. There are more treasures some for the garden too which I will post soon.

Today I am linking with:- Boogie board Cottage for Masterpiece Monday and

Dittle Dattle for Amaze me Monday

  2. Deborah, how simply gorgeous! Everything you've done looks just wonderful, and I love that you hung the little basket from your shelving, rather nervy and brave I might add ;) It looks just wonderful. I adore the enamel jug, is it for salt? It would make me want to change all the color scheme in my kitchen to blue it's that pretty. Have a wonderful week, xxx tami

  3. NICE!! All good. Nice enamelware..jealous.

    xo Jeanne.

  4. I love all your whites and the dresser is such a sturdy piece...
    You have a very keen eye for detail, I love your blog!

  5. Your new pieces are just wonderful! I love all the contrasts of beautiful things on your dresser.

  6. Lovely finds...I think that little 'freebie' is cute! And I agree, husband's just don't quite get the dents and rust spots...but that's o.k. as long as they tolerate all this great stuff in the house! Robx

  7. Love your enamel coffee pot and also the silver one. I love coffee pots, they're harder to come by than teapots.Nice to get a freebie too. Love Linda x

  8. It's beautiful!! I love all the white! On my desktop at work, I put a photo of the bottom of a garden chair from my yard--all beautiful and perfectly chippy. My boss thinks I'm crazy!

    Now Following!

  9. Oh my that is lovely. You have just convinced me that I need to redo my porch in white as it looks so lovely. The pop of blue on the white makes it perfect.
    Best Carolyn

  10. Great finds. I love the enamel and the rusty and chips just make is that much more charming!

  11. Precious pretty finds. Love the blue coffee pot.

  12. LUV your French country cabinet - and the way you've styled it! Just beautiful! All the distressing, chippiness, white and rust is drool worthy! lol! And you're just don't get! :)

  13. I really love all your pieces and how you've displayed them. The Queen's Anne Lace is gorgeous.

    You're right about men not "getting it" LOL!

  14. Hello Deborah

    Yes, the coffee put is a lovely shade of blue. Would it still be possible to make coffee in it? I have a dark blue one, which admittedly was bought new, that I often use when I serve coffee in the garden.


  15. Please may I come and live with you? Failing that I shall just have to get a bit more inspired in my place - been here since November and now beginning to think I ought to make it a bit more pretty!

  16. Love the pop of blue added to your cabinet!

  17. That blue is so lovely, you have a real flair for setting the scene, were you a set designer, have you ever thought of it? Envious of your rain, still not had any here, bone dry everywhere, dusty, but at least it is cooler and cloudy.

  18. Hello Deborah, I found you over at Boogieboard cottage.. love your blog and can I come over and stay with you for a month?? looking forward to reading your blog. Your newest follower
