Patine & a one year anniversary celebration this weekend
I hope you are all having a great week.
I was lucky enough to be able to attend a french flea market this past weekend.
It was held at theChateau Sonoma.
All I can say is, it was amazing. I wish I would have taken more pictures for all of you, but I was having so much fun shopping.
I am Sorry!
Now you see this gorgeous couple pictured above.
Their names are Eric and Dani.
They are a husband and wife team. Dani is from Germany, and Eric is from California. They own a company called Euro-Linens.
They are a very talented team!
They find amazing European linens and create beautiful pillows with them.
I can't tell you how incredible their work is.
Everything they create is made with antique or vintage fabrics and they don't use any reproduction fabrics.
They were at the flea market.
I shot a few pictures of their booth for all of you, I will share those first. Then you will also see a few pictures of their amazing store, Patine, that I took from their blog, with their permission of course.
First here are a few of my pictures from the french flea market.
These are examples of their rag book pillows.
Their rag book pillows are made from an antique french ticking. They
fuse these antique cloth books (from the early 1920's) to the french ticking, to create a one of a kind pillow.
I haven't ever seen anything like it before.
Wouldn't these be so cute in a toddler's room?
If you would like to read more about their rag book pillows you can by going here~
I love this pillow.
It would look great in any boy's room.
They sell these antique cloth books as well.
I love french ticking
Actually I am obsessed with french ticking!
These cute little bags below are called french shot bags.
They were used by hunters to carry their ammunition in.
These were a rare find.
Eric and Dani have them filled with lavender.
The pillow below is made from vintage fabric from Sweden.
They have pillows for everyone!
I wanted to share with you why Dani said they decided to open a shop.
My name is Daniela Davis my husband Eric and I started our business euro-linens.com 8 years ago. It all started with buying vintage and antique fabrics in Europe. We bought linen shirts and dresses, Ticking and Homespun Linen in France, Euro-Shams and Kitchen Towels in Germany, Lace and night shirts in Italy and many more beautiful fabrics from Sweden and Hungary. Then Eric bought his first industrial sewing machine and the rest is history. He started to create the most amazing and gorgeous pillows, bolsters and duvet-covers from all these beautiful fabrics from Europe. To this day Eric sews most of the pillows himself. We first sold only at the Alameda Point Antique Faire, slowly but surely we stared selling at Shows like the Rose Bowl Flea Market, Long Beach Flea Market and The Santa Monica Antique Flea. Our Goal was and still is to bring these wonderful old fabrics back to life in a new way and create with them a unique almost one of a kind feel that would fill a home with joy. Over the years many customers asked us if we had a store that they could come and visit, unfortunately we always had to say “no we don’t have a store”. After all these years we can finally answer the question with: YES, we do have a store. In June 2009 we opened our little store PATINE in the heart of La Selva Beach, a beautiful Beach community where we also live in. So here are some pictures that showcase what we did over the summer, enjoy......
Here are a few pictures of their shop, Patine.
It looks amazing.
As you can see their store is filled with beautiful linens and great vintage treasures.
Eric and Dani are celebrating Patine's one year anniversary!
They would like to invite you
to come and celebrate with them.
on Saturday, May 29th from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
They will have some extra special offers ready for you!
There will also be food and wine!
They hope you can come and celebrate with them

304 La Playa Boulevard
La Selva Beach, California 95076
Dani and Eric would love to see you there!

I am going and can hardly wait!
As you all know by now I love vintage linens.
It is almost a 3 hour drive for me, but I don't want to miss it!
I hope to see you there!
I will have my camera, and promise to take pictures for those of you who can't make it.
Their store looks amazing, don't you think?
They are the sweetest couple.
Thank you Lulu for telling me about these two!
I want to thank all of you for taking the time to stop in and visit my little blog.
I want to say thank you for all of the incredibly sweet comments you left about our tin ceiling.
You really made my day and my husband's as well.
After all he is the one who did all the work.
So thank you for taking the time to stop in and leave us a comment,
we really appreciated every single comment.
Hopefully my bedroom will be finished before long so I can show you the finished product.
Hope you all have a great week!
