Once again, I am joining Kathleen at the Faded Charm blog for another WHITE WEDNESDAY.
I was going to show you some more antique and vintage lace which I picked up a little while ago, but you are bored with lace by now, aren't you? ;-). Lol, I'll show you the lace in another post, I am just being mean and making you wait.
I bought a stack of very old plates and bowls a couple of weeks ago. I looooooooooove them! The designs are so sweet in a gorgeous deep if somewhat faded blue on the creamy white background. Flowers,delightful little birds, what do scratches and chips matter? I am using some of them in the craftavan to hold my mother of pearl buttons, small bits of lace for making tags with, paper off cuts and bits and pieces, and some gorgeous old millinery flowers. The first ones I have ever found.
Also, after looking and not finding for many years, I finally came across a large antique clock face, woohoo! It now resides on the mantlepiece in the cottage -
This little Dijon mustard jar was so pretty, I just had to display it on the mantlepiece as well -
Please go and visit some of the other lovely blogs who are taking part in this week's WHITE WEDNESDAY party at the Faded Charm blog.
Now before I forget again, some of you have asked me whether the things I have shown in the last couple of posts are for sale. Most of them are, some I will want to keep for myself. You can always email me and ask about a specific item and I'll give you the details. I am so tempted to leave the listing until I get back to the UK, as it seems impossible to get a proper proof of posting receipt from a French post office. Trust me, we tried, sigh. It is not such a problem with larger items which can be sent Colissimo and with insurance, but smaller ones with the normal post? GRRRRR. I know I am being silly, and thousands of things are sent from France every day. So far, everything I have sent to friends etc has been received without any problems, but........ there is always the sod's law factor, lol. Am I being over cautious? And totally ridiculous? Yep, I think so, too, lol, but..........
Anyhoo, time to go, and leave you gals to look at lots more lovely whiteness.
