What is it about French design that is so unmistakable? When I spied these plates across a crowded table full of vintage merchandise at The Elephant's Trunk Flea market a couple of weeks ago, I thought they might indeed be French. That was my first thrill. The second, was the unbelievable price. Five dollars! for four salad size plates, and three bowls. Congratulations to me! And congratulations to Mr. C&C for schlepping them home all in one piece!
I'm showing them off today on top of the antique matelasse coverlet I bought at the same market for twenty dollars. In addition, I found the neatest cotton towels and aprons at William-Sonoma that have a delicious vintage/antique vibe.
The towels come in sets of two, in both a blue and a red stripe, with aprons to match. The main fabric is a sort of oatmeal color, and is nice and thick. I love the look.
They look just as vintage as my homespun napkins shown next to them here.
An antique cup and saucer dresses up the table too, bringing out the creamy tones.
Edge design has shamrocks. Makes me think Irish!
The center has a pretty medallion.
So glad you stopped by for a look!
Hope your week is going great!
