~ A French Bottle Crate ~ ~



Hi friends
I wanted to share with you a few photos of a recent etsy purchase


A beautiful chippy robins egg blue antique French bottle carrier or crate
shipped directly from France by one of my favorite etsy sellers:



I filled it with my favourite Ikea glasses and picked some greenery from my yard



I LOVE the patina





I love creating vignettes



That's all for now ;)
Have a wonderful week
Hugs,
Rachel

LOVE the patina on the bottle carrier! I always love looking at your vignettes. The Ikea glasses look great, ours (about 45 mins away) is opening 7-27 and I have it marked on my calendar!

Rachel,
Love the idea of glasses and flowers in place of bottles. I too have one I ordered from France via Ebay. It was the beginning of my fascination with beautiful, rustic french things.
