Antiquing - part 2

Another stop we made was to a shop call French Connections www.french-nc.com . They had a great selection. They sell african fabric and french fabric (in addition to antiques and many other things. What a selection of beautiful fabrics.




I definitely need to go back and buy some baskets.

This is a wall of African fabrics. I have a wip that I started using scraps from African Fabrics that I friend gave me for Christmas. Again I need a visit back here to buy some more African prints to finish it up.




Some pictures of the French fabrics they offer.

And yes I did buy something.
A package of charm squares and a bag of scraps - which I am very excited about using.

Love that porch full of baskets. I have a piece of one of your charm squares--the pretty aqua with the rose color in it. Yum. Looking forward to seeing how you use these pretty squares.

I think I would have been in antique heaven, all those lovely baskets lining the porch front and such lovely fabrics.

I see they still have baskets. I bought one from them about 7 years ago that I just love. I may have to make a trip up to see them, also.
