As many of you know, we had the great pleasure of participating in French General's "Chateau Getaway" in France this past month. It was a whirlwind of friends, crafting, shopping... and lots of exploring. So many new sites and experiences mixed in with the familiar.
Driving through the French countryside is both humbling and breathtaking. A harrowing pin-turn on a road barely more than one lane wide, followed by a view so incredible you are moved to tears. We have been truly blessed in this abundant season.
We were also very fortunate to be able to bring a few treasures back with us to add to our assortment this month! More lovely items are being shipped back soon, and will be available in the weeks to come... (!)
We begin with a beautiful 3" wide cotton-on-tulle lace trim that was tucked into our suitcases for the trip abroad, and then transformed with incomparable French "woad dyeing". For infomation on this revered process, go here.
This is one of our very popular white gauze scarves that was also treated to a woad makeover. We love it, and cannot wait to pair it with a jean jacket!
A stunning French trim! Soft metallic gold knit over a cotton cord. Very unique and beautiful.
$4.00 per yard.
Not French, but lovely none-the-less! A deep pewter colored dupioni embroidered and encrusted with beads and cabochons, finished with a sparkly chandelier drop. Decorated on both sides!
We are always excited to uncover a vintage stash of threads on wooden spools. These are especially beautiful. Lustrous silver with a unique shape.
$9.00 each spool.
$9.50 ~ 18 pieces.
Another gorgeous bead assortment. Four coordinating colors of 10mm glass pearls (6 each), enhanced by 6 mother-of-pearl buttons, and 2 crystal shank buttons. Packaged in a glass vial. This is a beautiful group!
Love these!! French "patches"... loosely woven with details in metallic gold. Sold in a set of three.
$11.00 per set.
Continuing our love affair with summer scarves, we offer this frothy confection! Lacy, white, and sparkly all over. What's not to love?!?
Or how about a gorgeous silver-grey? We say yes! :)
