Some more images for you

I have been so caught up in the swap I am doing with Alexandra in Germany, quite often just daydreaming, lol, thinking about what I could put into my little swap package. That didn't leave much room for anything else, reading your blogs of course, cooking dinners, doing the laundry etc., but nothing much crafting wise. There were no boot fairs on the weekend in our area either, so nothing to report there.

Instead, I am going to post a few more pics of lovely old cards I found recently, and a couple of other bits. Hopefully, you'll be able to use them in one of your projects.




This plan of the Louvre is from a 1922 Blue Guide, Muirhead's Paris -



My DH and DS3 have deserted me and gone to the cottage in France to get it ready for the winter, you know, cutting the grass one last time, pruning bushes and trees etc., so I had time to list a few more things in the blogshop. BUTTONS! Vintage French buttons on their original cards :-)

Thats all folks, toodlepip xxx

Thank you for more images, they are so pretty. I have not done much today as it is very cold and raining. Just one of those days where you want to sit and do nothing...or blog read!

I do love those photos, I wonder who those wonderful ladies were and what became of them. It seems a shame really that they've left their family albums. Never mind, I know you'll put them to fabulous use. Buttons - I love buttons, and am off for a peek x

Have a nice time in France! Thanks for sharing the lovely images with us, too. It is always intriguing to see how women dressed in the "olden days". :)

Thank you, too, for putting the bag on your sidebar! *smiles!!*
