I found this old crate at the flea market a while back. Love it's aged and weathered look. I would love to have something old and French, but the logo suggests french to me anyway with it's faded black curves. Crates are so useful for storing and propping things, but I'm sure you've noticed that they show up everywhere in design. I went to Pottery Barn yesterday and saw that they have an old vintage looking version of a wine crate (at a big price) that you can buy if you can't find your own. Mine was only ten dollars.
I bought a bunch of my favorite white roses and thought they would look terrific inside. But I was also looking for a way to show the crate off and enjoy the look.
I have one of my fav cross stitched tablecloths on too. I like its rose motif in a neutral color on white linen.
My goodness this room got a workout while all my little girls were here! For now we'll just enjoy it with some different favorite pretty little things. . . .
We've hit a blissfully cool patch of weather the last few days, with cloudy skies and a few welcome scattered showers. It's quiet again about the house, and there are melancholy forties tunes playing on the radio. So many things to put right again after company leaves, but I'm enjoying doing it all at my leisure.
Lots of catching up to do with you too!
Hope your week is off to a great start!
