Ce matin....


This morning I went out to buy a couple of baguettes....

I returned with some antique plates, antique petit easel, 2 fabulous prints of hot air balloons over Paris and another of the same balloons over London, a couple of French interior design books,





{this is one of books, it is fabulous}


a couple of magazines and an old painting that needs restoring...



The books are borrowed from my friend that has a Brocante store in the village and the painting was a gift from the same friend.

Needless to say I forgot the baguettes.


This afternoon I set off again, intending to get my baguettes, I got two steps from our front door when a neighbour - another brocanteur yelled out "come and see what I have".

I returned home with this fabulous jewellery box ........



I just had to have it, I have never seen one like this before.....



Not sure if I should venture out again as there is no telling what I will return with......now I just need to think of something to tell Mr FF when he asks where the baguettes are!


The last thing he said to me when he left for work was "do not buy anything today!".

Bisous,
a very naughty L x

  1. be still my heart. all of those items are so beatuiful. i say go out again . . . 3rd time is a charm! get your man his baguettes and he probably will be too busy eating/enjoying them to even bother asking if you bought anything today. oh, and don't forget to post photos of your new, third time out, finds! ;)always enjoy your blog!

  2. NOW you understand why I wall myself up here in the country. I'm lethal anywhere near civilisation. I may have to make my own baguettes - but I can now walk into my garage without fear of my 'collections' caving in on me ;-) LOVELY post. You did give me a giggle! Just finished the post I started this morning...

  8. I love your story! It reminds me of my daughter who, when living in Paris, also went for a baguette. She began to nibble it on the way home. When she got to her front door, she realized that she did not have enough left for breakfast for her and her husband.

    And OMG, what great finds!

  25. Oh my you must get the baguettes and make them into crunchy little croutons to serve over a miniature salad in your charming bowls....that way Mr FF will be oblivious to the mound of stuff you brought home :) I too love the jewelry box.
