French pleasures! ;-)

I seem to have a bit of a 'French flavour' in the craft room at the mo...which
also coincides with the arrival of one or two new readers, from France! ;-)
A few months ago, I found these lovely table mats on one of my favourite sites, Vintage Home, and I knew that they would fit perfectly in my kitchen.
I just love the colour red in a kitchen!
The pot stand was an ebay find, many moons ago.


And as you can see, I've been playing with a little of the gorgeous French vintage linen fabric with the floral 'seed packet' designs.
For sale here:

And making a few bits for the next V&H Fair!

Devon is far from sunny at the mo and so there's no better place to be than in the craft room...
with a few colourful goodies to cheer me up! ;-)
Hope your week is going well!
à bientôt!
;-)

I saw the top picture of your blog - the picture of the lady with a parasol. She was on one of my birthday cards I had when I was about eight, the card was from my grandparents, the card was framed and hung on my bedroom room for years.

What a glorious craft room you must have. I love the fabric you are making the satchets from, so pretty.

Great French lady find. Those will certainly cheer you up on a dull grey day. (nothing like a bit of red to do that)
