Lock Stock and Sparrow

French Connection

You will often find some gems from France at Lock Stock and Sparrow. I have picked my favourite things currently in the shop that have the “French Connection”.

I absolutely love these beautiful French ice buckets that can be used as lanterns.

Whether on a Christmas feast laden table, as part of the display or dotted around the living room, they really create that cosy warm feeling….we have 2 by our fire. You could obviously also use them for what they are designed for. I think they are a perfect size for a little bottle of Prosecco.


Fairly often I go to the shop and ask very nicely for items to come home….I have to be told no quite a lot. This watering can was one of those items. I think it’s gorgeous but in true Christmas fashion, no room at the Inn!

Something for everybum!


Last but not least are these sweet stools. My favourites are the ones shaped like hearts. Now, one of these is coming home for me to put my G&T on! They come in all shapes and sizes and can be painted to give them a bit of colour. Mike sometimes paints the legs with some Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. This is perfect for being brave and trying some of the bolder colours.

All stock can be found on our Facebook page with sizes and prices.
