Look what I found....

{fabulous vintage religious medals}


It started with finding two adorable minature mannequins which I decided would look fabulous in old book pages.


After careful thought (a friend commenting that the book maybe to valuable to cut up) I decided that I needed some pages out of old French magazines.

So off I set (across the road to be exact) to visit Monsieur B, aka Antique dealer and good friend of ours.

Not only did I find some very old (1899 - 1902)bundles of fashion magazines.....

{fabulous antique bundles of fashion magazines dating back to 1899}


I also found some other goodies, including some gorgeous religious medals which I have pinned to a velvet cushion......


and an antique pipe rack complete with collection of pipes, which I will photograph and list later today.

Mille mercis to all of you that took the time to comment re the linen bags, it is much appreciated.

We are hopefully off to a vide grenier in the morning, the weather here is stunning at present, cool mornings and warm sunny afternoons - the perfect weather for treasure hunting.


Je vous souhaite à tous un fabuleux week-end.......
