Farm Chic AND French Chic

I know I've been long between posts lately, but I do hereby vow to do better! Lots of summer happenings, flea markets and selling and shipping have kept me from updating regularly. I have a truckload of stuff to get cleaned up, photographed and listed, but here are just a couple of small things I've found recently.

Are you fond of the "farmstyle" or "farm chic" look? It's really catching on. When I saw this cute little chickenwire basket, I knew it would fit right in.
And I found these french candy or mint tins yesterday. They are newer, but the candies are imported from France. The village of Flavigny is a village in France is the sole producer of the anise based candies and were originally manufactured by monks. Flavigny is also the location of the filming of the movie Chocolat.

Farmstyle OR French, they are both a bit romantic, don't you think?
