Provencal Wicker Berceau....


Oh my!  How do you say 'fabulous' in French?! ---  Fabuleux!---  So, as promised...this was my favorite find last week in Trouville.  It was well camouflaged, filled with stuff...the stand caught my eye first and I asked the woman who appeared to be the seller if I could remove the contents to take a closer look....she was so friendly and was assisted by her 'tres jolie' teenage daughter who she confessed had used the berceau as a baby.  They were so kind that I took the liberty of giving the basket an stand a nudge to see if it was stable....it was.  The wicker itself solid and sturdy!  J' adore!

It took me a few days to photograph it, and I have just now this morning posted it on Etsy......


I think it belongs in a decor magazine....filled with French linens in a 'tres-chic' farmhouse laundry room!  I can also imagine it filled with baguettes in a boulangerie!  Can't wait to see what kind of home it finds....a new life after many years of holding precious bebes on a tiled patio or hanging from a shaded tree in the hills of Provence......   Fabuleux!  Non?
