It was a tough fight but guess who won?  Savvy Southern Style got the table!!! (I’ll let her share more photos of HER table…WINK)

We had such a good time at Monsieur and Madame’s shop full of French treasures.  Kim at Savvy Southern Style, Shirley at Housepitality Designs and myself all bought wonderful items here.

We loved this charming shop in Deauville so much that we went twice!!!

Come to France with me next year to find more great treasures like these.  Thanks to Cat and Alain of Sunday Brocantes for making this tour the best ever.

And don’t fight with Kim N. over farm tables…she’ll win every time!

It's the bigger than your rule! I should have grabbed that lamp when I first walked in the store. :)

I missed you gals by a few days. We just finished up our walking tour in England's Cotswolds today, and I'm headed to Paris tomorrow. (The mister is going on to India). This post is adorable. I'm sure you will find your dream table soon!

Great find on the table, and love the lamp too. I've been looking for one for my desk. This would have been perfect, but guess I'd been arm wrestling someone for it. Ha!

Cat @ Sunday Brocantes, France said...

Love this post--as much as I love that I witnessed this 'competition' in person... but you are both complete ladies and each of you did come out as 'winners' in the end.

Have a fabulous week mon amie! Cannot wait for more posts!

That antique shop was so wonderful...fell in love with that buffet and can't wait to get it...You and Kim may have arm wrestled, but I think you gave her the distinct advantage...so nice of you!!!
