Simply French Vintage

Oh hello my sweet friends!

Boy, do I have a treat for you today!  I’d like to introduce you to Simply French Vintage

an online shop full of the most wonderful vintage country French items.

Simply French Vintage, isn’t the name so appealing?  Items included in the shop are chosen for their simple, natural look.  And I am so excited to showcase two of their vintage items and how I’ve used them in my home…

cheese pot & Lavender

They sell these beautiful French Cheese Pots…which I’ve shown here holding lavender(above) and kitchen linens(below).  The cheese pots are a very sturdy stoneware with small holes around the sides.  The pots were used to make goat’s milk cheese.

‘Simply French Vintage is run by an English couple, David and Jane Gratton who have lived in rural France for nearly 10 years. They visit French flea markets and brocantes in search of vintage finds to reflect their simple, French country style. They also go to farms and old mills to find the original burlap grain sacks that are their specialty.'


Here, I have featured this gorgeous burlap grain sack as a bistro chair slipcover.

This original French grain sack is printed with the name of the miller, BAJARD.  And the words “moulin de la croix”, meaning “mill of the cross”.

I gathered the sack and tied a length of burlap ribbon and added a hydrangea.


This grain sack is a nice large size, perfect as a table runner, also.  It has a fabulous “machine worked darn” down a section of the edge.

Another way to use this vintage burlap grain sack, is as a liner in an olive bucket.  Place a plant inside, and you have an instant centerpiece for the farm table.

Simply French Vintage also offers French linens, seed labels, and other vintage finds in their online shop.

I’m thrilled to add Simply French Vintage as a sponsor here on my blog.

And I know you will LOVE perusing their online shop :)

As you can see, I have found many wonderful uses around my farmhouse for the French cheese pot and burlap grain sack, and I’m sure you could too!

And I want to send a huge THANKS to David & Jane for sending these gorgeous French items for me to enjoy in my own home.  I will enjoy their many uses :)

Congratulations for launching your shop, you have done a fabulous job, your images are beautiful and I believe God truly has his hand on you Becky and you will go far. I only wish I lived in the USA to be able to purchase some of your precious pieces.

I love the inspiration you give to others with regards to your images, for example the burlap bag, who would have thought to do something like that, it is a great idea!

Becky, I love the cheese pot! I might have to head over to their cute little shop and get one for myself! I already love collecting vintage jam pots so one of these will look great in my collection!
Thanks for showing adorable ways to use them as well!
PS I see in one of your photos you put all of your kitchen spoons and rolling pins in the pot. Love that! How tall and wide is it so I know which one will work for such an idea?!! :)

NewlyLoved said...

what great little finds!
I am excited to find some of my own around my neck of the woods... not sure if they will be as cute as those straight from France but fingers crossed!
Thanks for sharing
