I also found this beautiful cross with the faux mother of pearl panels and the gilded Christ -
Oh, and this romantic cherub candlestick ( I'll show you more details of it further down ) -
I love the subtle shimmer of mother of pearl.
Well, that is it for the Blissful Whites Wednesday bit, but while I am at it, I might as well show you the rest of the things I bought on Sunday. You don't mind, do you? Thought not, lol.
Firstly, a few more photos of the beautiful cross and the cherub candlestick -
Found a couple of sweet little silver plated pieces, this darling little cup -
and this elegant little jug/pitcher -
Right, what else? Lets see. Keys, a big bunch of lovely old keys -
A really stunning ornate cross, quite large -
and this beautiful rosary with purple faceted glass beads -
A very lovely old Missel, leather bound and gilt decorated and sweetly illustrated pages -
Ok, this is the weirdest medical thingy I have found so far, lol, I have no idea what it is for, but the box it comes in is fabulous, and the thingy itself is so fascinating -
The cutest little children's cookware, tiny tiny pots with the prettiest designs -
A very old small casket, very ornate and lined with silk -
And some great aluminum ( aluminium ) canisters/lunch pails. Equally at home in a shabby chic or industrial chic environment -
Gotta love that really rusty tag on this one -
Thats it from Sunday, but................. today is a bank holiday here in France, May 1st, and there were a couple of brocantes in our area. Very small, because the weather was horrid, it was raining buckets, and I guess most potential stallholders got put off by that. I did manage to find a few goodies though, and as soon as we get another hour or two of sunshine, I'll photograph them and show you, of course.
Wishing you all a wonderful 1st May and a happy Blissful Whites Wednesday. If you haven't given up the will to live after this somewhat lengthy post, then hop over to TIMEWASHED and join the party!
