Oh Colette, please tell me when you are hosting this event? I'd love to just come browse and enjoy! My husband needs to be in Stellenbosch and I was hoping it could coincide with this!
Your cross is exquisite and will look beautiful in your rose garden!

I don't suppose you could pick out a few of the embroidered scalloped sheets and let us know how much they are? They are my very favorite, but its a little far from Chicago. Online buying from your brocante will be the best I can do!

Hello, and so in love with your passion, I sent your post to friends who don't even blog and now they are catching the bug.
Come see what I have done with my touch of guil. They were trays matching yours and I transformed it to a new piece that can hang on the wall as a piece of art :)
you are an inspiration to us all.
Stll drooling over your friends kitchen, do you think we can get here to invite us United States California girl to brunch so we can take in her beauty in person :) I wish I were kidding, but i'm not :)
