some weekend tresors...



Bonjour mes belles,

I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend, ours was another busy one and we even managed to fit in a spot of treasure hunting despite the bitterly cold wind blowing from the north.

First up is this fabulous antique missel which dates back to 1892 and comes complete with it's original silk lined case - both of which, are in immaculate condition.

one of the stunning pages that this lovely book contains...
 
 
Love the golden pages which match the lovely rich gold silk fabric that the case is lined with.


This really would really make a lovely present.


Other finds included a stunning antique statue of our lady of lourdes which is made from wax and is signed...



along with a stunning vintage 1920's rosary......



also from Lourdes is this vintage glass paper weight souvenir ....



and last but by no means least, a couple of fabulous shabby French prints......

 


I plan to update the online shop later today, but if you have any questions please contact me.

...à plus, Leeann x
