Happy Monday to you! Today is a special post as this is my first holiday tour of the season! I’m joining six other amazing bloggers to bring you a French Christmas Tour, hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. Many of the bloggers I’m joining today are people I was reading before I even started a blog. They are immensely talented, with gorgeous photography and styling, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and visit all of their posts!
I know others have blogged about the virtues of antique outdoor lanterns before, but I just have to weigh in. I first fell in love with them in this kitchen when it was featured in a magazine a few years back. I didn’t even realize that they were originally French outdoor lanterns, I just knew that I loved them.
Those of you who know me know I love antiquing. And one of the things I’ve been really wanting for awhile now is a vintage olive bucket. If you’re not familiar with them, they are old metal buckets primarily that were used for gathering olives during the harvest, primarily in Italy and France.
