French Ladder

Hello Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

in a decorating book called French Home there's a picture of a similar ladder and it's called a French Fruit Picking Ladder.

i love this ladder!
it's currently displayed in my home's entryway.
i've also had it displayed in my dinning room before with my grain sacks hanging on it.

The girls are officially out of preschool for the summer. i'm looking forward to those warm sunny Santa Barbara summer days and hanging out with my beach bum and beach bunnies!
I hope your all having a wonderful start to your week!
until next time,
