Confit pot and cheese platter!!!

 I finally bought a confit pot!!!! After having a love affair for years. I purchased it off etsy and it shipped from France in less than 2 weeks all bundled up and waiting for me to unwrap!
            
 
I read somewhere you can't have just one and oh how right they were. It was quite pricey so I'll probably wait a awhile to buy another, unless I find one for a really great price.
 
First I had it beside the stove holding utensils.



Then I placed my butter platter underneath.
(One of the purchases I made while on my blog break lol)


 

 After staring at the kitchen table like this forever it seems.........(cheese platter another purchase over my break)

 
I brought the confit pot to the table and I think I like it here for now.
See those spots on the table ? Reagan spilled paint and I tried scrubbing it off. Eventually I will redo the stain on the table and probably paint the base with ASCP Graphite instead of the glossy spray paint we used a few years ago.



 
I LOVE this shot!


I hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Wow, it's so pretty Michele!

I absolutely love your wicker dining chairs. I'm going to do something like that in our dinette when we move one day. Your entire home looks pretty.

Thanks for coming by and leaving a kind comment!

Love your confit pot! I got one finally last summer at an antique store in Blowing Rock, NC. I was afraid to order one on ebay or etsy from France...worried that it would arrive broken. Glad to see your's made it safely! It looks great with your French Country style!

Hi Michele,

Your confit pot is such a beautifully shaped and coloured piece of art that it will complement any space. Have you noticed that we almost have the same curtains? Yours are a bigger check!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! Your home has the most charming finds in it. I love how you've set that table using the grainsack in the center and the cheese platter and now confit pot on it. You can tell it is authentic and not a reproduction. I know you will enjoy it's many uses over the years.

A great purchase - the confit pot looks wonderful the way you styled it on the table with the plate wall behind it.

I want some of those so badly and like you said are so pricey. I am sure I will be able to scoop up at least a couple in France.
