wow, had a lot of problems loading pics here today... i spent an hour earlier then lost them all when i tried refreshing the page!
heres hoping for some better luck this time!
been tidying up my alfresco and prettying things up. as i was away for a week and a half, the house was full of boys and i can sense the lack of femininity!!!
Here on the wicker chair i put a few pillows that i bought in france. Not vintage, but new and fresh and clean!
I sent some postcards to my sons ; they only arrived yesterday!
I found this pretty telegram at the flea market. I dont think it is an original, but its sweet!
i had some roses left over from college this week; so pretty and sweet smelling!
Loved these tiny flavoured bon bons i bought at Printemps in Paris!
trying to dye my carnations blue/lilac, but its taking so long!!!
I bought myself and my mum and sister in law a great shopping tote; the large black one) from Laduree. They are so useful. .... I havent taken a pic; too dark inside!
also pictured a really beautiful silk scarf I bought at the Brocant market in Paris...
Macaron selection!... I had the marie antoinette, the rose, chocolate, and a couple of others!! so delicious!
I bought this little Limoges trinket box at a different Brocante marche... there are a lot around and a lot look very similar.. however, i was attracted to this one as I could tell it was ULtra old!
developing a deep love for all things old and beautiful.......
They seem so much more valuable to me that something new, even if its designer... its just not the same!
What a busy week; had a crazy few days finishing a huge assignment that I was meant to do during the holidays (but i couldnt as I wasnt there!) so nice today to sit back and relax a bit!
have a wonderful weekend everyone!
(PS, if you would like a copy of the Telegram - pictured above, I can copy it and send it to you! email me your address if so!)
