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!
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.
Yes,as said I will be writing Saturday on each post as this is a different day than the annual brocante has ever been. I am giving sneak peaks until the the soiree begins .Below is one of the sweetest things ever to come home with me.To keep or not to keep is always a question I struggle with.
It is a drawer to hold you pottager seeds.I was thinking store your seeds in this....
Sprout them in something like this........
And lets start with some carottes non? oui oui oui!!
The Brocante is SATURDAY the 7th of September. I will keep saying it as I do not want any sad people showing up on Friday to a empty house.We will resume our friday nights next sale.
I have back to school supplies just for grown ups. Parisenne Erasers in gris and rulers that say pharmacie that will keep you on the straight and narrow. Raise your hand if you want one!You know the rules,come get in line...first come first serve.
I know you are all used to having the Brocante on Friday night but for this one only it will be on a SATURDAY!!! I will post SATURDAY in bold letters every time I blog as to remind you all. I will start showing you tomorrow all the goodies but here is a sneak peak ;)
Precious pink documents with black charcoal "craies"that say Paris. ooh la la
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.
OF COURSE THE BROCANTE WILL BE COMING TO TOWN AROUND THE SECOND WEEK IF SEPTEMBER.
