The Thursday Three- Fresh from France for you

DSC02750Today’s three French treasures are a mix of old and new again

This chopping board was found under the sink in the French village house behind a pile of anti-insect products. I cannot say I have noticed the presence of any of the creatures these were designed to deter, perhaps the previous owners simply enjoyed the power of pest control?

I have scrubbed it but may have to steam clean it!

I love it’s simple clean shape  and to me it epitomises form and function, like any good kitchen tool.DSC02747

This dinner mat-right- is part of a set of six, all in different floral designs that all look like they have been lifted from the golden age of Dutch flower paintings in the 17th century.


The cushion –below- was obviously irressistable. The best of vintage style reinterpreted in a washable fabric!
