Pretty French Things!! (or Christmas came early!)

Well blog peeps!
I am very excited today! All the lovely pretty things the husband and I bought in France have arrived!!

There was a little too much to travel in hand luggage with us on the plane, so we packaged it all up and sent it on the scenic route!

It literally was like Christmas this morning coming down to all these goodies to unwrap!

Now the fun begins finding places for them all to live!!

Some of my favourite items....

Glass jars with ceramic lids and a wooden spice rack/towel holder for the kitchen.

A large white Limoges porcelain tureen, which will grace my Christmas table this year filled with festive vegetables of some sort (Brussels, pancetta & shallotts maybe!?)

Two tiered cake/nibbles stands.

Four ceramic rose door knobs which are going to replace the plain ones on our wardrobes!

A large pretty canvas made up of smaller ones which I couldn't resist as it has the husband's and my initials on M & B!

A very large birdcage photo holder for the wall.

A birdcage key store (the husband and I really have a thing for birdcages!)

So as you can see I now have lots of things to arrange and find homes for!

I also have to mention the amazing Cath Kidston bargains I picked up yesterday..
It is definitely dangerous to live so close to a Cath Kidston factory shop!

 I'm in love with my new Cath charm bracelet and sewing box!!!
