Here are some photos I took a little while ago, when we were blessed with sunshine and warmth. My beloved new old French flower seller's trolley, I love those wheels!!! -
and the chippy paint is that utterly gorgeous shade of French blue, sigh. I am going to fill it with lots of red geraniums. When it stops raining, one of these days.
So, what else did I find? These gorgeous old baking forms -
You know how much I love French enamelware, don't you, and what could be more cheerful than this coffee pot? Brightens up even the dullest day -
French silver plated cutlery, big and heavy and totally fabulous. Great quality as well -
I found some cool old laboratory equipment as well. I love the shape of this laboratory bottle carrier, not sure though whether I ought to paint it. What do you think? -
You also know that I have got a thing for turned wood, because it is so smooth and tactile and just lovely to touch. I found two beautifully turned needlecases, two different kinds of wood, but I have no idea what sort of wood they are. Love colours and the grain though -
Ooh, some more enamelware, isn't this round bellied enamel jug fabulous?
It is a gorgeous deep reddy brown, or browny red on the outside, and the typical grey granite speckle inside. Wouldn't that look great in the kitchen filled with a big bunch of flowers?
Here is another red find, a beautifully decorated toleware tray. I love those roses! -
More enamelware, this darling little white soap dish -
How about this? One could, of course, use it for its proper purpose, and put the champagne on ice, but I think I would rather fill it with beautiful big branches of lilac or apple blossom-
I do have some more photos, but I think this is quite enough for one post.
For the first time, I am linking a post to the much adored Feathered Nest Friday at the French Country Cottage and the equally wonderful Show and Tell Friday at Cindy's Romantic Home blog. Gosh, there are so many links to the most fabulous posts, check them out! You're gonna be busy, lol, so make sure you have a cup of coffee or tea.
