One week from today is Charlottes Brocante!!!

The cute things just keep coming. France us the capital of cute.These are so wonderful.They were made for chapeauxs(hats) Who does not need a monogram? I am thinking jewelry. Monogram jewelry. Ooh la la

Speaking of chapeauxs here is a box without the hat. But for the love of all things good who needs a hat when you have a box like that?
And speaking of jewelry these litle gems would be perfect all with hooks as they hung from a chatelaine.Clipped around your waste you were prepared for the challenges of the day. Smelling salts anyone? Need a match? How about a pencil? See you Monday for more sneak peaks. Sunday is a day of rest and I am taking advantage of it!

Charlottes Brocante is 8 days away!! Saturday Septmeber 7 6 pm

 All of the precious things that make your house have a french feel have arrived for the brocante and await you.Sweet plaques from a dog show in Normandy landed this little dog third prize.These plaques are numero uno for me with the soft shades of grayish white whispering across them.
 These little garden kneelers are kissed with the passage of time just the way we brocante people like it.
Oh and these troughs with battered by the ages in a patina wood gets with the passage of time.Candles and greenery will make your heart sing with these. Another day another post tomorrow which will bring us closer to the brocante.

Charlottes Brocante loves Frenchie paper things of any kind and they will be waiting for you Saturday the 7th of September

Mauscrit means handwritten in French. How about a wall of manuscrit papers for you wall? I like them just sitting around on a table maybe with the below plaque resting on them.

These beautiful game cards are also wonderful to frame.Make a card ,put them on a gift bag or place them on shelf.They sit pretty wherever they are.

And the same goes for these scolarie flash cards.Brushing up on your French is always a good idea with these  flashcards from ecole.(school)

These long bread paniers are so precious.They would come in handy when you...

 slice your  baguette on a round bread board........

  or these ginormus square bread board.....(why not use both as life is short? So much bread so little time:)

Then use your paris knife for a little jam or beurre ( butter) Delicuex!

Everyone's a winner

Curtains in your trees, send me your address and a treat will be coming in the mail for you!! You other two gals will get something as well but I know how to find you.Things  here have been beautiful and busy. I could not get on my account and then summer came. I am a bad blogger. Some fun spots for us.........We have a new kitten Jessie and I had a birthday and got flowers from my Shirley all the way from the north of France. My daughter Charlotte and I met her sister in New York  and  we also spent a week ministering to the people in Portland who are living on the streets. In the photo is my new friend George and all the children  I was fortunate enough to have in my group.I hope life is beautiful for all who stop here to read.
