My birthday gift……


Hello friends!

Hope your week is off to a fabulous start?

My husband and I went to the

Bottoms Up Market on Friday in KC.

The market is held in an old industrial building and

is four floors of pure fabulousness!!!!

One of the treasures I found

was this antique French bottle drying rack.

My sweet hubby bought it for me as an early birthday gift.




It has the perfect amount of patina…..

and it is a really large one too!

Here you can see the size in comparison

to the window




I also got five of these

wonderful old French wine bottles.




I placed them on the French bottle drying rack

that I got the other day from Decor Steals.


Here you can see

the name etched in one of them…..

so beautiful!!!!!!




Hope you will consider following me on

Google Friends Connect.

Joining the party at:

Savvy Southern Style

What a nice birthday present! When is your birthday??? I love the authentic old bottle racks like that. They can be hard to find too. That was a great score! Your vintage bottles look nice on your other bottle rack. That's the one I have too. I spy some pretty new curtains in the background of your pics too!!!

Gosh I have never EVER seen one of those. It would be a fun find, and then to look for the bottles to put on it.

hi des,

did i miss your birthday? if so here's a belated happy birthday wish for you.

i love those drying racks and wish i had a place for one. i don't have a lot of counter space and not enough room from counter to cabinet for it to fit.
