I just bought a carriage yesterday then saw yours. It is beautiful. Can't wait to see the finished one :)

Miss Kris said...

Hi Janet! I just sent you a message with all the info on the magazine. Also a website with perhaps more pretties!

Carolyn I love seeing used and beautiful furniture, which finds their way to a new and loving home.

Hi Marie!

I also love French interiors. I'm so torn between Paris apratments and my love of the country. Thank you for stopping by today!
