White Wednesday in France!

I am at our friends' house again, using their internet. I am sitting in the garden, enjoying beautiful views. As it is Wednesday, I am posting some photos of lacy finds from the vide greniers today for White Wednesday over at FadedCharm -


They have come from various vide greniers and called for a LOT of haggling, lol. But thats half the fun of course, and if the price is reasonable in the end, thats great.


I also found some really exquisite antique handmade lace, but I will leave that for another post.

Gosh, my friends are saints, they let me sit here doing TWO posts in one day, woohoo!

Big hugs to you all, toodlepip xxx

That was a very good haul! I love them all you lucky lady. I hope they get made into some very lovely items one day. Glad to hear you are thoroughly enjoying yourself in France. We studying France at the moment so I should probably show the girls your photos. Totally educational!
