A French Farm Table


Happy Thanksgiving Everyone....
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving....

I first want to say THANK YOU to Sara Duckett for doing such a wonderful job on my new blog design....Sara is such an incredibly talented website designer!
I can't tell you how much I love her work...
Thank you Sara...
Sara also designed my shop website. 
{my shop will be opening soon... I can't wait to share my new website with all of you}



The French Farm Table...
Ok... I am finally getting my post up about my french farm table.
I actually took these pictures about a month ago....
So you will have to excuse the fall decorating in these pictures...
sorry : )



This little table gets moved all over the house....
It now has a spot in our living room....


I don't know if you can see what is under my plates....
About a month ago, I received these beautiful vintage music sheets from a friend.
Thank you Rozmeen for sending me so many wonderful things...  I loved everything....


I only have a few items in my house that are this distressed.



I love decorating with food...especially pears. 


The red fabric that is draped over the pillow on the bistro chair will soon be made into a pillow.
I have a friend in Canada to thank for sending me that piece of fabric. 
Thank you Theresa!


I think this little table helps  add a lot of character to the room....

On another note......




You can win a beautiful handcrafted wreath from 
{their wreaths make a wonderful Christmas gift}

Two DW Christmas stockings made from European antique grain sacks.....
And a table runner made from an European antique grain sack...





On a final note...
A Black Friday announcement for Starfish Jewelry Designs...
For every order placed on Black Friday {from 12am on 11/26 to 12am on 11/27, Amber will be adding a free Taylor necklace to the order at no charge.  There isn't minimum purchase either.  Any order qualifies, even if you order a Taylor for $22, Amber will send you a second Taylor at no charge.  Also Amber will not be placing a per person limit on the promotion.  So, if you want to go back three times and place three separate orders, you will get three free Taylor necklaces. 
I also wanted to let you know that Amber recently started a blog.
Thank you Amber



Thank you everyone for stopping by.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Take Care,
Maria

I love the table and the pear is perfect - I was in France last week (for work!) and the pears were so juicy and delish - a friend had some scattered about her kitchen.

What a perfect little table! Old farm tables have always been one of my favourites. Love your new blog look :)

The Cottage Wren said...

By chance, I happened upon your blog..so peaceful and serene. Look forward to new posts. I'm moving from a craftsman to a carriage house in upstate NY this week, and would have to say, I'd hang the Wintersteen wreath on my new french doors in the reading room. Too exciting..Good luck to all and Happy Winter.

GLENDA CHILDERS said...

I love having a small table that can be moved from room to room as needed. And that one is a beauty.

Fondly,
Glenda

Jenni said...

I love the little farm table. I don't have many pieces that chippy either, but it sure brings charm to a space. I have been admiring your blog for months now and thought I'd actually tell you how much I love your blog and all your lovely white decorating. And you don't need me to tell you, but I just awarded you the stylish blogger award over at my new little blog, House of White. Thanks for the inspiration!

Priscila Peters said...

Great table! Very very cute.

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Congratulations to the winner! I know she'll enjoy those wonderful gifts!
Have a wonderful weekend, Maria!
