Inspiring French Decor French Market Preview

They say imitation is the greatest form of flattery, well, we DID feel flattered when beautiful Brittany Harmon said that she is constantly inspired at the Red Shed. She said that she coveted the sign below, but it wasn't in her budget................
(Here's a pic of Brittany with one of her other "creations".....)
Now we are all about, young moms staying within their budgets, so it didn't hurt our feelings at all when Brittany found some old barn wood, she knew exactly what she would do with it. She created this great sign for her home! Wow, what a great job she did, don't you think!
Thanks so much for sending us the photos! We love to hear from you!

We're glad we inspire you, and we know we can't ALL be as talented as Brittany, so that's where we come in. Let's see what the talented Grace Barzyz has in store for you at the French Market this Saturday......In Grace's words:
"Meet me at the French "BROCANTE" wall hanging..........letter's are covered in french book pages front and back.........adorned with vintage brocante tid-bits and ever so carefully wired with vintage pearls placed randomly.......Antique silver glitter accents (always)......

"Paris" sign.......letters hand-cut w/french angels and ornate hand-cut decoration........of course some antique silver glitter adorns this piece.
La Maison "Brocante" vintage piano roll banner..............
lot's of detail on this one.......lovely vintage crochet lace added in between segments....vintage pics of french furniture and house décor.......vintage rosary bead chain hangs banner.......
I love this!......................Pink French newspaper Roses "On the Vine" w/leaves made of pale green glassene paper..........
Sometimes I just love the way the pattern of the newspaper falls.................I love paper!
Gateaux des Rois paper crown/ 1900's from France (embellished with vintage glitter a la grace.)
Celebrates the Epiphany or Three Kings Day
La Tarte Magnets, I love these.......the glitter has oxidized and they look aged.

It's a girl! vintage shoe mold thoroughly covered in sheet music.........hand-made pink paper ruffles added.......paper candlemade w/ blessings banner ............vintage cigar label added it's a girl...........



Believe it or not folks, there's MORE! Grace has been a very busy girl! If that doesn't get you out of bed for the Red Shed French Market Sale, I don't know what will!
