Saturday I visited a neighbor who was "changing things up" in her house. She and I occasionally exchange decor items that, for whatever reason, don't work in our houses anymore. She has great taste, and I always love how she decorates. Priscilla is so sweet, and offered me this darling pitcher with a toile pattern on it.
I happily said "yes" to the pitcher, even though, at the time, I didn't know where I'd use it. It's so much fun trading things back and forth.
Love this toile pattern.
Well, yesterday, I was in the thrift store and saw a pair of LARGE Pottery Barn decorative breadboards. I looked at them and walked away, then came back and piled them in my cart...just to think about them. Needless to say, I bought them. How could I turn them down at $7.48 for the pair! Whoo! Hoo!
Here's the round one, and...
...the rectangular one.
They already had hangers on the back, so all I had to do was find a spot for them...but where? They are so large, they wouldn't fit on any wall in my kitchen, so Hubby suggested using them on the fireplace wall...hmmm.
I popped a bunch of white tulips into the pitcher...and added a couple of Blue Willow plates on the mantel...
...and a pair of candles.
Does that give a little Frenchiness to the living room? Or what?
Hugs, and hope y'all have a great weekend,
