My French Country Style

These crazy old spoons needed a place to hang out.
So I designed this little spoon holder and had a friend cut it out and put it together.
This hangs in my kitchen. It's a paper collage that says French Kitchen and I think you will agree it looks and feels like something you might see in a little 'French Bistro.' It is made from many different patterned papers, French ephemera and then I hand wrote out the words and cut it out. I also stamped paper paint in the two corners. Then the double mat was painted, then crackled to get that worn look. I never get tired of looking at this.

I did this for our guest room. Just thought it might help anyone who sleeps in there to truly have 'Sweet Dreams.'
and the one below hangs in my pantry. It is a board I had that I just thought would be fun to decoupage up with french ephemera, and more patterned paper. In the other corner it has the word pantry on it.
