...I've been a longtime fan of Kelly Wearstlers & hold such admiration for her hollywood regency style, recent collection for Lee Jofa, & her new blog, MyVibe MyLife. Such a style icon. I'm totally head over heals for her textile collection & her overall style- so inspiring! Here are a few clips of her recent collections, kelly at work, & some of her vibe trays that I just want to scoop up for my own personal use....xx mvg

...halles de bayonne flea...
...some of my finds...
...last weekend was filled with girlfriends & flea markets for me! Friday's there is a small market near the Halles de Bayonne that I went to last Friday with my friend Sage. I picked up some good vintage tins along with an old map of France- definitely a framer. Saturday was a flea in the village of Arcangues filled with more professional vendors- so the price points were definitely higher, but it was a gorgeous setting & was still cool to check out with my French friend Julie. I walked away with another tin & a vintage glass bottle. Sunday was the Ahetz village flea out in the countryside. Sage & I braved the heat & cruised through the rolling green hills to this village which definitely reminded us of Vermont in the summer- we were love! We both walked away with more than we probably needed, but hey- we're in France, right? I picked up a couple side tables, a service bar, & an old studded leather chest. The weekend was a success & each flea was promptly followed by a nice cold glass of Rose- parfait! xx mvg

....we recently finished our French farm table project. My husband did a majority of the sanding (my least favorite part) & I slaved away on several coats of stain, high gloss black paint, & polyurethane. We are super stoked with the result. We also painted one wall of the dining room a great teal color to add some fun color. Now we just need to hang the vintage glass chandelier, get some window treatments, a small service bar & a few accessories & we'll be ready to role. Can't wait to share the finished product! Bonne weekend! xx mvg

...carpe diem! Summer is here in France (or atleast it feels like it). Cherry blossoms & lilacs are blooming everywhere- I intend to embrace it- salt & sand, sunkissed skin, surfboards, barefeet, bonfires, camping, beers, topless, beach blanket dinners, long dresses, short shorts, messy hair, bikes, bar hoping, farmstands, hair scarves, love, & friends. xx mvg
