Hurrah, at last we have a little bit of sunshine. I know I did complain about the lack of natural day light when we had the horrid rain the last few days, so I thought I had better take advantage of the decent light today and take a few pics of bits and pieces which I hadn't blogged about yet.
As you all probably know by now, I love antique and vintage fabrics and linens, especially French ones, and I was thrilled to bits when I found this French ticking teddy. Isn't he just adorable? Look at that happy smile on his darling little face. Poppy quite liked him as well, but I removed him rather quickly, soft toys and Ridgebacks just don't go together, lol. My two play tug-o-war with them and you can imagine what they look like after a minute or two. Anway, here are some pics of Ticking Ted -
Edwardian French postcards, I adore them. Unfortunately, they are rather expensive, even at Vide Greniers. I had never allowed myself to buy any in the past, until our last stay in France a few weeks ago that is, because these were actually reasonably priced, woohoo -
Floss, help me out here, whats with the fish and April 1st? Is that still something current or was that just some custom or other in the distant past?
I found this lovely old plant pot holder in a local charity shop. Has to go to France of course, its decorated with roses!
I WAS going to show you a few pics of some fabricy things which I acquired at a jumble sale last week, but..................... can't do it, sigh. Floss said she is already sick, and I really wouldn't want to make her any worse. Oh, there were some strange fabricy things, some lovely fabricy things, and some real ooooh aaaaahhh fabricy things..............
