When I revealed my Antique French Buffet that I purchased from France . . .
~ ~ ~ there was not much attention paid to the beautiful antique French Gathering Basket . .
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ that proudly stood beside the buffet.
No, I did not purchase this beauty from France . . .
~ ~ it was purchased at the Country Living Fair in Atlanta last year.
I did not post about this basket previous to my France treasures . .
~ ~ as I left it behind at Kim’s (though not on purpose!)..
I placed one of my grain sacks that I purchased in France in the basket . . .
I also placed my “collection” of walking sticks and canes in the basket. . .
~ ~ three does make a collection right??! . . . and one of them is mine.
We love to go hiking while vacationing.
There are straps in the back so that the basket can be strapped onto your back.
I love the base of this basket…
On the left side of the buffet, I had a collection of demijohns gathered on the floor.
I decided to add this chair that I purchased at an estate sale for $10.00 . . .
~ ~ as I am always used to having a chair by the door.
Bought some beautiful tulips from Trader Joe’s . .
~ ~ and placed them on top of my Antique French book.
Tied them with personalized ribbon that was a gift from my neighbor.
~ ~ Thought it had a “Valentine feel” . .
I forgot about that ribbon . . now you may see it again, in a Valentine’s vignette . . .
