French basket/Early Christmas Gift to Me

I have been a big fan of Corey Amaro’s blog Tongue in Cheek for several years. Her take on French life, photos and stories just fascinate me. I have been living vicariously through her on her Brocante (French flea market) adventures and periodically check her online store to see if there is anything I simply can’t live without.

So, when a few weeks ago I spotted a sweet little French basket she found at the Brocante, I just knew that I had to have it.

I loved it’s simplicity, but what really sold me on it was this.

it was lined with the most lovely French roses ticking fabric.

When I received it in the mail yesterday, I was so tickled to have this sweet little item from France. I quickly remembered some vintage millinery flowers that I have been saving for just the right thing.

And voila! My sweet little French basket all prettied up. Here’s another shot.

Hope you are all having a lovely 12/12/12. Just did Pilates and am getting ready to go see Anna Karenina with Isabel. Good times! Will be back soon hopefully with pictures of our Holiday Home! TTFN!
