I LUV Country French....
I don't have a lot of it, but I have SOME pieces that I just
would look awesome in a CHALET, somewhere in the
deep FRENCH COUNTRY.
hens and roosters running around, with their little heads bobbing up and down as they peck for their food,
I DO have a nice amount of ROOSTERS
hanging around SWEET NOTHINGS.
And, aren't ROOSTERS a big thing
in FRANCE ?
THIS particular one is a little rug that
rests beneath MR. SWEET'S feet when he is in his recliner.
Ooo La La
A pair of magnificent FRENCH roosters
hanging in a SHOW-OFF spot in my
The sweetest story goes along with these...and, I am already tearing up...
My daughter's best friend in the world, PAIGE, lost her oldest son in a car crash. I kept my daughter's children while she and Jent went to be with their friends for a week. Because I had admired this awesome pair of colorful roosters, PAIGE brought them to me, saying they could not have made it thru that first week without the support of Stacy and Jent ....the gift was a token of her gratitude .
Can you see why they are among the first things I would grab if a fire broke out in our home ??
I am most proud of this FRENCH console....
all hand painted and, if you will, notice the FRENCH ROOSTER behind the "coop".
I bought this French piece when a local store went out of business.
It was used to display their line of French dishes and they stored the extras behind
the two doors.
THIS French dresser, with the famous
FRENCH PROVINCIAL feet, is a thrifted
piece from years ago. Very vintage with all the original hardware.
A wonderful storage piece....all the 8 drawers
are TOTALLY full.
One day while 'window' shopping, I spied these two adorable RED, FRENCH chairs, all distressed and everything wonderful, in a local shop.
Being on such a strict SOCIAL SECURITY budget,
I asked if she had LAYAWAY..........she said,
"Indeed I do" so these were in her shop a couple of months until I could pay for them.
They seemed extra special, having to wait so long before adding them to our living room.
Some times, I think I am blessed that I have to either "pay things out" or save my pennies for a long time before I can buy something I REALLY want.
I know it sure makes me so appreciative of every thing I am able to add to our home.
My $15.00 thrifted from GOODWILL coffee table,
sporting those famous SEXY, CURVY, FRENCH LEGS..
This thrifted coffee table, with it's sexy FRENCH legs
would LOVE hearing the beautiful sound of the FRENCH language being spoken,
I can call it COUNTRY FRENCH if I want to. !!
NOPE....I don't think PAULA DEEN is French
but this little white dude holding up the recipe book
is a FRENCH ROOSTER named ALPHONSE,
that's French for ALFONSO, in case ya didn't know. hahhhaaa....
