French Farmhouse Finds, The Chateau Sonoma French Flea Market, and a Food Photography & Styling Workshop in Atlanta with Helene Dujardin, Mindi Shapiro, & Tami Hardeman



Hello! I hope you are all enjoying your week. A couple of weeks ago I listed some French Farmhouse Finds in my shop..... I thought I would share a few images of the items I listed...... One of my favorite finds is this French Grape Harvest Basket..... I love the patina. I filled it with flowering dogwood branches, I only wished they had lasted longer.....

I also added to the shop a few of my favorite vintage French enamelware pitchers...... On a side note.... This is also an area I recently set up to use as a desk..... I used to work on my computer in this little room where I felt isolated from everyone.... I now feel more connected with everyone while working on my computer : )

My sister also lives in Atlanta and my other sister lives in LA, after the workshop was over we all went to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA for three days.....
