French nesting at Verbena

While treasure hunting a while back, I discovered these wonderful vintage creates that had the perfect chalky colored patina...perfect for my decorating style and perhaps yours....vintage...muted shades...a little rustic....functional and French inspired! I stored them in the barn for a while waiting for the right time to bring them out and offer them for purchase. Timing is everything..and I think these are the perfect accessory for your French inspired holiday decorating.
 I am posting some pictures that have inspired me to share with you. some are mine and some are from jean d arc..one of my favorite sources for inspiration.
I will be working on styling a Holiday photo shoot here on my studio porch this week with a local magazine and will be using them as well for some creative and festive uses. I will share the pictures with you when they are done.
so take a peek I think you will love these. I would love to hear some of your uses for them as well.
 Once they are gone that's it. These are the real deal with metal detail sides too.  .




                 French inspired from Jean d arch great for nesting your books and magazines
My mom has had one for years that sits on her kitchen island filled with some of her special olive oils, herbs d Provence and French sea salts.

love this picture from jean d arch!!! Don't forget I will be sharing more pictures of what I am doing with mine for the holidays...
I also have a few of these longer fruit crates left..so message me if you would like to get creative for the holiday's or any day  with your French inspired crate !!!!
  or stop by the store in the Marion Block building Ocala's original Opera house. You can also visit my moms incrediable & european style cheese room across from me.. a truly special shopping experience for all..have fun and  fill up your crates!
