Yesterday we managed to squeeze in a brocante and returned with the following treasures/tresors.......
The first find was this fabulous altar cross which is over 80 years old, it was bought from a brocanteur who is also a close friend of Mr FF's.
The next find was an antique rosary which I am in the process of removing rust from the chain, so any tips would be appreciated. I have tried baking soda, white vinegar and am now about to try some coke.
Another treasure is this fabulous applique, which I think, looks equally as good with candles but as you know I have a thing about candles and have them all over the house.
I love the ivy detail and the bow is tres belle.....
Another find was this gorgeous pillow case complete with fabulous monogramme.....
There is something about monogrammes that I adore and to think that I never have seen one before I came to France....we have antique monogrammed sheets on our bed and Mr FF moans if I put normal ones on in their place!
All these treasures are bound for the fabulously french online shop, I will try and update before the end of the day.
Had better get back to work as I have quite a bit to do before Mr FF returns home from work and I have yet to decide what to cook for his dinner - who said life in France is easy?
A tres bientot,
