Vintage French Fruit Crates
I hope you are enjoying your weekend.
I just got some vintage french strawberry crates back in stock...
I haven't had any of these in the shop since last summer.
These crates are a little different then the ones I found last year.
They can be used for so many different things....
They are great for corralling your everyday dishes in.
I like to sometimes display one of these crates filled with dishes on top of the table or counter.
You can also use these to hold magazines or books in.
I thought I would share a few images of crates that I posted about last year.
This particular french fruit crate was one of my favorites.
I love how it is lined with chicken wire.
I also used this style of crate as a dish drying rack in the kitchen.
I am hoping to find more of these for the shop, I am currently out of stock...
This is a vintage french crate, that I posted about last year, you can read more about it here.
Here I shared an easy way to set dishes out for a summer barbecue.
I set a small milk bottle caddy from Holland on top of a stack of ironstone plates.
You can read more about how we love to use mason jars for glasses here.
Here I stacked three vintage french fruit crates together and used them to hold my vintage grain sack
runners and lavender pillows made from vintage french textiles and grain sacks that I will be taking to the Remnants of the Past Show.
I have been busy trying to get everything together for the show next weekend.
I hope to see you there....
You can visit the Remnants of the Past Website to read more about it.
On another note....
My girls get home in a couple of days....
They have been visiting my sister in Atlanta, GA
I can hardly wait to see them, their room looks so empty at the moment : (.....
On a final note....
I hope you all have a safe Memorial weekend.
A special thank you to all of the men and women in uniform who have served our country and are currently serving our country, we owe so much to you for your service!
My heart goes out to all of you that have lost a loved one serving in the military, and to those of you that have lost loved ones under any other circumstances.
We sadly lost a brother 12 years ago in a car accident, life is too short and so unpredictable, be sure you let your loved ones know how much you love them.
