Weekend finds....

Hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. Yesterday I found a few goodies including lots of old French music books which I adore and cannot get enough of.

The minute I set eyes on this glorious lot I wanted them all but the vendor has priced her page and Mr FF and a dear friend Mr T, were ready to depart.

I was thinking not sure what to do, when the seller said you can take the whole lot for 5 euros. My poor french shopping bag was already fulland I could not see Mr FF nor Mr T so was not sure how I would carry these back to the car. I said the the vendor not sure how I would carry them and she said I will give you the suitcase for free. End result - I ended up carrying a full and heavy suitcase through a crowded market and decided not to buy anything else on my way to the car.

Here are some of my lovely finds........


Fabulous vintage rosary with pretty purple glass beads - available in shop for 10 euros + postage


A vintage framed dolly complete with movable eyes and hat box with the word "Paris" on it.

Available in shop for 10 euros + postage


Gorgeous French scarf depicting the hunt.

10 euros + postage


Lovely small Italian tray, 15 euros + postage


Fabulous vintage Paris post cards which I love and plan to frame and display.....



Lastly, a beautiful Italian antique bed sheet with the words
"Dormi Bene".
This belonged to the elderly seller's mother who was Italian - a gorgeous and rare sheet.
40 euros + postage

I am now off to start my monday morning chores on a lovely and oh so tranquil day in SW France,

Bisous, L
