What is it about French artisans? Everything they touch is beautiful. The attention to detail, the magic in the pieces they create. No wonder we Americans are crazy for their design aesthetic.
Here are some of the details that make my heart go pitter-pat.
Curvy lines and gilt metal . . . need I say more?
So there I am on the floor taking photos of Maria's wonderful antique linen bag, when I notice the underside of this French chair. I'm mesmerized by the burlap tape and the hand tied coils.
I just received my goodies from Melanie's Giveaway, featuring items from Maria of Dreamy Whites. I've had such a fun time corresponding with Maria. She is as sweet as she is beautiful.
Now . . . why was I on the floor taking photos, you may ask? Because when I opened my fragrant package of lavender, I was inspired to photograph the beauty of its contents. The linen sachets and tote bag with their silky soft feel are scrumptious to the touch. The wonderful vintage green bottle with its deep depression on the bottom is perfect for my purple pincushion flowers. To see more of my French inspired photo shoot visit Maria here.
