Recent aquisitions

Moulins Faience

I have recently received a few gifts that I thought I would show you.
The petite bowl above is a bit of Moulins Faience that my mother brought back from her trip to France.
I will never have enough of this Provencal pottery. The simple, French country motifs have long been a favorite of mine.
She also got these lovely antique linen cocktail squares at a Paris flea market.

They need to be pressed again but the pale gray detail is lovely.

Another exciting treat was these two charming paintings from Sally Kelly.

I doubt that these spots will be their permanent home but they represent a dreamy place to be in my book.

The only thing I bought was this bracelet from the Etsy seller, O my heart.

I love bracelets but have freakishly small wrists and was able to have this made smaller to fit.

What goodies have you been given recently?
P.S. If have not already seen my guest post and giveaway on The Pink Pagoda yesterday, please check it out. I am so amazed at all of the lovely comments so far.

Don't you just love to receive gifts? I do and it is always a surprise to me when out of the blue someone sends me something. I recently received a beautiful large journal in a beautiful mustard color tied with rough twine and a beautiful bookmark from a friend in India. I was thrilled!!

Your mom brought you gifts from France? How wonderful! I love your other goodies. I bought a new mirror for my foyer, but I sure wish someone had given it to me!!!! Hope you're having a great day.
