adorable finds...


Bonjour mes belles,

It is going to be another warm day here in SW France and it is Pentecost (lundi de Pentecote)so it will be quieter than a normal Monday.

Yesterday there was a very large vide-grenier in our village with over 400 stands, French Boyfriend had a busy morning selling but I did not find a lot of tresors which is often the case  as we tend to find more goodies at the smaller vide-greniers.

I found this charming and large framed wedding photograph which I adore. It really is charmant and I plan to use it on my next project.


Another find was a old print of Bordeaux which is still in the back of the car and some toile de jouy cushions with matching lamp shades.

We had more luck on Saturday when we went to look at a couple of chairs that were for sale and ended up buying a Louis xv style bureau, a fabulous mirror, the pair of chairs and also have an option on 4 other chairs that the seller is holding onto for the moment but plans to sell later in the year.

 
 
 
As soon as I saw the chairs I wanted them but the fabric is worn in places hence recovering maybe necessary....a winter project perhaps.
 
Ironic as I like them the way that they are French Boyfriend thinks that they need recovering as it is rare that he wants to change anything...
 
Très bon début de semaine à tous , Leeann x

  2. I like the chairs and the wedding picture however even though I haven't seen them ,toile de jouy cushions with matching lamp shades are my all time favorite
    I have a toile de jouy and matching pillows and ottoman , I bet I could cover a lamp shade with left over material ? thanks for the inspirations
