~ Finds ~


Hi friends
I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend
I did a little antique shopping this weekend at my favourite antique shop


Kathy and Kris always keep their shop stocked with the best unique and beautiful finds.
I found these beautiful millinery flowers and an antique light dusty lavender silk sewing box.
I love the lavender and purple tones in the sewing box and flowers.
I actually do keep my little sewing kit in the box just incase I need it.


The sewing box even has a little bit of millinery attached to the lid.
I found a few more treasures which I will share with you in a later post.
They are very shabby chic and perfect for the way I am going in my home decor.
I have been more attracted to Shabby Chic decor than farmhouse style nowadays.
I may need to change my blog name..uh oh. lol  :)


I put two large bundles of millinery flowers in my mercury glass vase and love how they turned out.
I enjoy them more than real flowers to be honest.
Have you found anything new that you are loving? I always love to hear from you.
also...
I recently noticed I have some new blog followers and I want to say HELLO and THANK YOU so much for visiting my blog! :)

Have a wonderful week friends
xo,
Rachel

Hi Rachel~~ Loving the shabby chic. I think you can mix farmhouse and shabby chic together. Call it Shabby Farmhouse. They both are beautiful styles and we should be allowed to have both:)))
Have a great night~

chateau chic said...

I think your shabby chic finds and what you seem to be drawn to fit perfectly into the french farmhouse style. It all works, especially if you love it.

So pretty, Rachel. Love that little sewing box, it's beautiful.

It's your blog, you can change the name any time you want. Personally, I love the way blogs evolve as do people with their interests. I think it all melds together in design anyway... I really like the romantic farmhouse look that I think incorporate Shabby Chic into them instead of the more sparse look, it's just more romantic that way.

Whatever you're loving design wise, it will be beautiful, I KNOW that ;)
