Despite being very busy with the repairs and redecoration of the house, we managed to escape to France for a little retail therapy last week. Above is Flossie wearing one of several red & white scarves I purchased. I should think that Sarah might be tempted by one or two!
This is the view of the largest vide grenier that I have ever been to. The stalls stretched for almost as far as you can see....that was 2.5 kms along this road, meaning 5 kms of stalls in total to get round.......and a very long walk to where the van was parked!
However, we did grab the odd tranquil moment, and a delicious lunch with family in Brittany.
Then it was back to the cottage to sort out all our finds.....
I bought several of these empty clock cases, I think they will make interesting display cupboards....
This unusual carved frame was one of my favourite finds on this trip, it will be taken to the Dairy House this week. Now, back to the painting..... no time for slacking!
