I realise it may not yet be mothers day in some parts of the world but I hope you all have a great weekend... I have been so jetlagged the past few days and cant get into a normal sleeping pattern!
I wanted to take lots of pics of my brocante purchases from Paris but just have nt gotten around to it! The times I have had the energy its been too dark! Anyway, I took a few snaps this evening just as the sun was about to disappear!
I did have a few little Laduree macarons, but of course, they are all gone now! pretty boxes though! I love their packaging! I Love the little florentine tray. It came from a flea market I went to on a very chilly morning in Paris and was so awesome! Seriously, the best flea market ever!! It was full of treasures.. so many gorgeous pieces of furniture, masses and masses of dinnerware and porcelain; loads of Limoges ! If only I could have shipped a whole container load~~ !!! I know many of you with a passion for brocante and vintage beauty would have been in heaven!!
I did buy a couple of pretty vintage sconces, some silk scarves, a little limoges trinket box, a little telegram print, but dont have pictures of as yet...
I was very pleased with this little perfume bottle; I really liked the colours and the pattern and when i got back to the hotel i looked up the marking on the back...
to my pleasant surprise i found that it was made by a company called Sevres who used to make porcelain for the French Royalty.! I have yet to decipher the details but will continue to research!! The top has a bit of a crack, but it really didnt bother me!
I made another cute little florentine find; It seems to be very old and not in the best condition but I love the cracks and chips!
And a few snaps from a pretty little flower shop we found in Reims on my last day! A pretty all white display out the front!
Love the rustic boxes and buckets! peonies and large headed roses with such a sweet scent!!
Have a very happy mothers day !!!
