~ French Toile Box ~


Hi friends
I hope you've had a wonderful week so far
I recently purchased this beautiful antique french toile fabric box from a seller in France
I took a few photos to share with you



I love french toile
A touch of red is nice in my home decor full of whites



I think its such a pretty addition to my french farmhouse decor
You can find amazing french items for fair prices at: http://www.etsy.com/




The next few weeks are going to be very busy around here at 425
The kiddos are starting school this week!
Yay!! :)
And thank you again for all of the sweet comments on my last post
Have a wonderful last few weeks of summer friends!!
*I will be back with a giveaway!!!!*

I am going to miss you while you take a break, but getting back to school is so much fun and I miss it so much now that MY kids are 30 and going on 26. No grands to help get ready, so I am feeling so left out this year. Have fun and can't wait until you are back!

Lara said...

Oh it is lovely Rachel! :-) Red is such a nice accent color with French farmhouse style. I ran out to Goodwill (we call it GW in this house.. LOL) & I found a Le Parfait French canning jar for $2.99.. I was all smiles. Enjoy your posting break; I'm doing that also. I am so nervous about Riv starting 1st grade!

Time Worn Style said...
