When I woke on Saturday morning it was...yes you've guessed it...Il pleuvait!
But as dedication to the cause dictates I duly set of for a local Vide Grenier (empty attic) which is the French equivalent to a Brtish car boot sale.
The weather was pretty awful and I was not expecting much of a turn out of sellers but surprisingly they were there in force, battling the elements. Give the French their due they are nothing if not resilient.
Lets go have a look around shall we?
On y va!
|loved this old barrow|
|...and this little wooden piano|
|I have a thing about boxes|
|I particularly liked this stall|
|a deer in the corner!|
|lovely little wrought iron thingy!|
|I also have a thing for old suitcases|
|ancient coffee grinders|
|...and old coffee pots|
|loved the light catching these glass decanter stoppers|
|...and loved the textures in the box of door knobs|
|aqua blue soda syphons|
|...and another wooden wheelbarrow|
|don't look if you are a vegetarian|
|spit roast chicken|
Hope you enjoyed your little excursion around this Vide Grenier ...Come back tomorrow for part 2
love Maffy x
