French Inspiration Thursdays



I don't have a beautiful French cane settee or an authentic French chandelier or for that matter I have never been to France, but I sooooo want to go and scour those flea markets!   I did find this vintage French tin at Kane County Flea Market.  You can see some more French inspiration every Thursday at the French Cupboard.

Hi Kelly, Love the tin! You really don't need to go to France for inspiration, there is so much out there right now! The vintage pieces are harder to find, and you found a real beauty!

I love old tins! I've been fortunate to have visited Paris a couple times but have never been to a flea market there. If I ever get the opportunity to return, it will be at the top of my list! Thankfully my hubby would love to visit there as well.

EEEeeek! The perfect little piece of France ... right up my ally, a rusty tattered tin to fill with tiny treasures!! Perfection!

Thank you for bringing your find to the Voila! party at French Cupboard,

I love this little French tin! What to you keep in it? You didn't even have to pay for a plane ticket to France!

Something Special said...

I love your stuff, and I thank you for visiting me at my blog. Your background is one that I had for a long time over at something special, and i have never seen it anywhere else until now. I found a more suitable one for my blog look, but I have loved this one for about a year now. Your mini canvases are wonderful!
