"WHAT," I ASK, "IS A VINTAGE
This is going to be a long post, so grab your grape nuts,
and settle in.....you might want to take your phone off
the hook and turn all cell phones off...lol
I DID HAVE 40 PICTURES TO SHOW YOU, but it said
an error occurred during saving, so I don't know how
many will show up.
I became familiar with the Vintage French Hen
when she posted this Give Away from
what I like to refer to as
The Vintage French Hen House.
THE VINTAGE FRENCH HEN HAS A NAME:
SHE IS VERY BEAUTIFUL FOR A VINTAGE FRENCH
HEN...SHE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE HEN FEET....HAHAHAHA
I have had enough fun on Marcia's behalf.
When you are through looking at pictures of the
Give Away I won
please go visit her and leave a cluck or two at:
This is my first clue about Marcia. She took the time
to search my blog and knew I loved the Eiffel Tower.
She does also.
She drew this parsian scene on the envelope to the card
she sent me.
Isn't it wonderful to meet someone, who makes you feel
There was a kindred spirit that just enveloped me when
the box was open.
You can't tell from Mr. Simply and my photography
skills but this is the most adorable cat card full of
sparkles. It is so pretty.
Who would have thought I LOOOVVVEEE CATS
since I have three of them.
She made this pretty wall hanging. It is made
from burlap, sheet music, and the hearts are in
what else...French...with sweet little buttons.
I did have pictures of Andy, my cat, inspecting the
box and I deleted them because it already said
an error had occurred, and I knew 40 pictures was
just a tad too many clucks.
A cluck cluck here,
A cluck cluck there
here a cluck
there a cluck
every where a cluck cluck
The Vintage French Hen is soooooo much fun.
She just keeps SPRING A LIVE IN MY HEART.
SPRING makes us happy, joyful, and giddy.
KEEPING SPRING ALIVE IN MY HEART
stands for when
my JESUS AROSE From the Grave,
and if that isn't
SOMETHING TO BE
Happy and Joyfull about
I don't know what is.
Look at the beautiful paper...it is like a robin egg blue
with a red outline of birds...I tell you it is divine...and it is
almost the texture of wall paper....My Mr. Simply and I
was looking at it and at the edge of the paper, it says,
Made In Italy.
If I had a Hutch I would paint it red and then
line the hutch with this paper and try to find birds
for the handles...it would be stunning....
E mail me My fReNcH hEn and let me know if
I can Obtain some more of this paper and where.
I just fell in love with Marcia going through her box.
Truly, it was like Christmas and each package had her
special touch. I could just see her setting in her studio
primping each package.
All of her tags, ribbons, and little jewels are going to put
in a special place and I will do a post about it later.
If you enlarge the picture you will see the beautiful
chandie prism she decorated. It is stunning with the black
design behind it and black ribbon...will be so pretty
hanging from a lamp, a display hook, or a hundred other
places...and of course you could always hang it from
This is a quilted bed jacket. Inside the bed jacket
when you opened it was a piece of lavender and a
french page and linen.....Marcia had a tag that
said she loved vintage linen...we are united.
I don't know if we got a picture of the crane
doily but I have never seen anything like it.
It is all white and the edge is surrounded by
cranes. It is quite beautiful and Marcia penned, it
is said that cranes bring luck.
These two books were wrapped in a pattern instruction
sheet and the ribbon was stunning as well as the
I will really enjoy these books.
This is the photograph of the tag that she penned she
loved vintage linen.
What I loved about this give away...more than the give away...
were the tags that had writing on the front and back
and little charms. It was like Marcia herself, got out of
the box and was talking to me.
I know it may seem silly to carry on about a
give away but it was just so sweet and adorable and
I could feel her heart.
Marcia is one of those friends that you make for life
and you can't wait until the next time you talk to her.
This is a beautiful tablecloth. I didn't unfold it
for the picture.
I wanted to get all the pictures taken and then later
today I will set down and just touch everything.
She sent a beautiful white pristine pinafore apron.
I HUNG IT UP IN THE CLOSET UNTIL I DO
MY SPRING CLEANING. It is such fun to wear.
I did a few slow circles around the kitchen.
Isn't this dove gorgeous and the Valentine swag
across the wrapped gift. The hearts are made from
felt with lace threaded through them.
This was a FAITH Bingo Card. She attached a tag
that her FAITH was very important to her...we're
She sent some pretty lace with a beautiful stem of
lavender. I love lavender but I, personally, have
never had it grow for me...I probably talked it to
The IRONIC thing...wherever I go I always buy
a newspaper so I can study the town I am
visiting...OH YES SHE DID...SHE SENT ME
THE NEWSPAPER FROM HER TOWN. I WAS
OVER THE MOON. I love to read the newspaper.
I AM VERY EASY TO PLEASE...
That is why I am called
This is one of the things Marcia is famous for...
her ANGEL WINGS.
One side says
The other side is plain.
She has these beautiful creations in
her ETSY SHOP to purchase.
I DID FORE WARN THIS WAS THE LONGEST
POST I HAVE EVER DONE.
Ladies and Gents, this is the most stunning
vintage mercury heart from France. I could have
just cried thinking about all the families that
hung it upon their Christmas trees, and
how it made its'
journey across the ocean. I am going to to find an
ornament hook and place a cloche over it.
It will remind me that God does give us the
desires of our heart, when He is first in our
Here is Andy reading the two books...even though they
are upside down to him.
Andy could work in Quality Assurance.
Andy is looking at his younger brother Walker.
He told him to go on, he was too young to read.
He almost looks like a painting.
This is the top of the apron...it is so very pretty.
This is one of the bottom corners of the apron.
BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE HANKERCHIEF

THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL ROSE FOR YOU MY
VINTAGE FRENCH HEN.

HAVE TO START OVER...PLEASE GOD
