Vintage Inspiration #91 Confessions of a Plate Addict

First of all I want to say a big ThankYou to everyone that left a comment on my last post about my new dining room chair slips. I loved reading them! I think you might like those slips almost as much as I do!!

And now I want to aim the spotlight on a sweet and talented gal, Debbie and her blog "Confessions of a Plate Addict"; don't you love the name? I'm sure that most of you know her and are fans. As a retired French teacher she even lived in France for a year, so her blog reflects her love for all things French Country. I first found Debbie because of her wonderful collection of Quimper French Faience pottery; a love we both share.

 But I have a question...
Is there anything this woman cannot do?

How about a Pottery Barn inspired birdcage pillow
that she shared last week...

(she is the queen of graphics transfers on fabric)

or my personal favorite,
the Le Mouton pillow...
(does she know how much I love my sheep?)

Here is another creation,
 her faux grain sack runner with some of her wonderful Faience.

Faux pumpkins decoupaged with paper or fabric
(she can do it and then end up being featured in Country Living!)

Oh yes, she was one of the first to make a burlap tablerunner. 

decoupaged eggs...?

French Script candles...?

And don't EVEN get me started on this little tabletop box
that she morphs into something more fabulous with each new season!

see what I mean?

One of my favorite parts of Debbie's blog, 
and a continuous source of endearing humor,
are her amazing companions and "staff".
They help her create all the fabulous projects that she shares with us. 
I tell ya, I wish my girls were half as talented as her group!

And speaking of my "girls",
we attended Baby Kitty's Birthday Party a few years ago...
it truly was the Cat's Meow!!
(isn't he handsome...and so smart.

So, if for some reason you don't know Debbie, French teacher and Francophile extraordinaire, then it's time for a visit. You never know what kind of project she'll be working on next, but I can guarantee it will be worth Pinning! Thanks Debbie for keeping us inspired. Wait to see what she has in store for this week!

I cannot keep up with all the wonderful inspiration you all bring to the table each week! I could feature all of you! Here are just a few from last week:

Ellen the Scribbler Unfocused, shared a tablescape of yellow on yellow.
You have to see all the photos, this room is wonderful!

Pam from Backwoods Cottage
used a church pew as her inspiration for this great bench. 

An Old Dresser from Bella's Rose Cottage
 has been turned into a wonderful planter.
 Be sure you see how she put it all together.

And Candylei from Westie, Art and Garden
 photographed her lovely daughter in an Edwardian dress
on a beautiful bucolic afternoon.
