FRENCH CHOCOLATE - handpainted table with french label

 
No it's not the yummy rich edible kind.
It is a fabulous vintage chocolate label offered by the Graphics Fairy.


 I originally bought her at a sale just like the ones you see on the TV show CASH & CARI.

Everyone files into a house, so many at a time to find it full of items labeled to sell.
Once I spotted her I grabbed the tag and turned very excited to head
the cashier by the door but just then I realized I couldn't just leave her sit there alone,
my goodness someone else will steal her.
So like a mother eagle I stood watching over her ready to peck at any little crows that came near till George found us and carried her off.





Of course a french symbol such as the Fleur De Li's had to be used for the door handle.



She also has great storage inside.

  3. Very lovely! This is such an amazing old ad. I used it on a rectangular table, but it looks equally as amazing on a round one!

  16. It's beautiful. Don't you just love The Graphics Fairy? :) I have a question for you, did you use an inkjet printer or a laser printer? And what kind of tool did you use to burnish it? I've tried this before and I can't get it to work onto raw wood. Maybe the trick is in the primer???

    Oh, and I'm a new follower too. :)
