Un été en Provence

A little makeover for one of my last finds at the antique market for LC...

















...a coat of paint but not too much because I like the shabby look...hooks...

















...etched ornaments and some words "un été en Provence" on the glasses...I'd like to spend my Summer in Provence...

















...little paper cornets with herbs...

Some of you asked me how to make homemade paper...you can see the tutorial step by step here.
A nice new week to you!

I love your new paper designs...the cornets with herbs would be so nice in the kitchen. Is that an old window that you reworked for the piece with hooks? You are so clever...I love the scroll ornaments in the corners!
