Simple Spring Project With A French Accent

I'm joining 11 other fantastic bloggers to share some great Ideas & Inspiration for our Simply Spring party March 10-11.  Please scroll to the bottom to find all the links from yesterday and today! 

Here’s a great way to freshen up your dining room…stamped placemats.

I got the idea from Joss & Main who were selling something similar to these but were printed on burlap.  I had a set of  cotton/linen placemats that I purchased from Pottery Barn a long time ago and hadn’t used much.

I retrieved my vintage rubber stamp set and voilà!

They didn’t take much time and didn’t cost me anything.

 I set an impromptu table for 4 on one end of the dining table and used cafe au lait bowls thinking it would be perfect for morning cereal.

A simple breakfast is made special with two-toned fading roses left over from a bouquet given to me by a dear friend.

My placemats had to have a French accent, but you could use any food, kitchen, or dining-related words.

The cow milk bottle is one of my all time favorite French vintage items.

I'm very thankful for Daylight Saving Time.  Now it's full swing ahead for Spring!

Très chic Kim! What a great idea to stamp your mats for a little Frenchy flair. The possibilities for stamping and phrases are endless too. Love your cow milk bottle :)

i love when we make something come together so well using what we have stashed away.

Love the look...but the breezy mention of stamping, as if it were so easy, just throws me. How in the world do you get such even-toned images and straight at that! I can't even do this on scrap paper! What kind of ink? Do you have to set it so these can be laundered?
