It is worth a trip to France {just for the flea markets}

Opening my suitcase after coming home from France was like traveling back on my journey.

As I pushed dirty clothes to the side I uncovered vintage silver, oil paintings, old French letters.

My trip brought me overflowing treasures.

A trip to France is not a regular extravagance for me.

A trip to France is a treasure in itself.

My dear friend ,Tracey Leber of French Larkspur, makes regular trips to France and now Belgium to fill her suitcases just for her shop.

If you can’t make it to France you can enjoy the treasures that spill out of her suitcases.

She just returned from a recent trip and here is a peek at the treasures she picked up.

Tracey’s photos alone are a treat to look at.

Tracey is a well known stylist who has been in countless publications.

Her home is true reflection of her love for vintage and how to use it everyday.

I hope you find a bit of France and Belgium to bring home and use in your day to day.

{I bought the French cider set and I can’t stop using them}


For the month of June I will be starting a new series called “Reflections of Paris”.

I have never shared all of my photos from my trip to Paris (two summers ago) and I am looking forward to sharing.

I am heading back with Kelly this September to celebrate turning 40 in May.

I better get these photos out before my next trip:-)

See you on Monday with “Reflections of Paris”.
