I was hoping to write this post yesterday but the day disappeared at a rate of knots and I am hoping that today does not go quite as quickly.
Here are some of the items that I found on Sunday....
Despite having a piece missing from her crown and one of the enfant's arms being damaged, I adore this statue and have placed her on the mantle in my showroom.
Another find was a pair of vintage appliques/wall lights which I love and think that they would look great in a shabby chic styled bathroom or bedroom.
Love the colour of these curtains! There are two and they come with a matching pelmet and vintage tie backs. Not only would they look great as curtains but I think that they would look great as part of a ciel de lit/bed crown over a bed - the pom pom detail is fabulous.
Love this silk hanky with "Souvenir de France" embroidered on it but I personally think that it is a little good to use.
I searched the internet and found out that this is a souvenir from the visit of the Tsar Nicolas II to Paris in 1896 and 1901. It is a rare piece and it is best to keep in a collection.
This cross was one of the first items that I found and I was drawn to the fabulous frame and think that the fabric is a great touch - again this would look great in a bedroom.
I think that "bleue" was the theme of the day as a lot of the items that I found were blue including these fabulous lamp shades of abat jours are they are called in French.
I am now off to photograph another treasure that is from the local chateau owner, it is a gorgeous 19th century quilt complete with patches in toile de jouy. A very pretty and rare piece - I just hope that it is easy to photograph.
