Fabulous find...

{an antique valise full of lots of lovely tresors}


This valise/suitcase is one of two suitcases that I stumbled across recently, and is full of beautiful treasures which I plan to photograph and share with you. Once photographed, the very lovely and of course very French objets will be available in the fabulously french online shop for purchase.

Many items date back to the late 1800's and there are some very special tresors which I am certain that you will love almost as much as I do.

A lot of beautiful dyed antique linen (sheets, pillow cases, tablecloths and napkins) has arrived direct from Paris and will start appearing in the online shop next week. There are many fabulous colours including a very soft rose, antique grey, lovely lavender and a lovely shade of vin rouge. Lots to do so I had better fly......



......a la prochaine mes belle amies.....

  3. Dearest Leeann,

    Yes, there are still treasures out there. I was lucky to find some authentic Christoffle Gallia knife rests in France... I do use them myself too. Makes life so much fuller and they serve a purpose.
    Just fun to discover more and more that I do LOVE everything French!

    Good luck to you and enjoy the hunt!
