European wash basin and Grain-sack Heaven


This weekend was my birthday and I went to Patine (patine) one of my all time favorite places to shop.  Patine was having a container sale-they unloaded a container of goods from Europe (Hungry, Germany and France). One of my good friends and I went to the sale for my birthday and had a great time looking at treasures.  My favorite present was this antique wash basin from  Hungry.  

Can a person be in LOVE with a piece of furniture?  I am! 



Love the rust on the bottom

The blue flowers on the enamel are gorgeous

Chippy Goodness! 


Here is it in my living room

I posted on Instagram (dds_cottage_and_design)


A corner in Patine



Lovely linens


Love

Large enamel basins



Large dough bowls with stands




Piles of grain sacks




The grain sacks that came back home with me!

I can't wait to do a project with them


It was a very good birthday weekend ( my husband got me Fleetwood Mac tickets!  )

  1. Happy Birthday...sounds like you had a marvelous celebration! I already in love with Patine and I have never been there, lol. Your wash stand is so cute and quite the treasure. And who doesn't love a grain sack or ten?! Glad to hear you enjoyed your day. Hope Fleetwood Mac plays "The Chain" - my favorite song of theirs. Jane

  3. I am in love with that furniture too and every photo that you have taken, just yummy! I see that your rusty new piece is flush with your white chair. I don't know if it would stain it or not but I thought I would mention it just incase. Hugs.
