Too much, too much !

I have lost the plot already, lol, and I thought I was going to be so organised whilst we are here in France. I had intended to photograph and list straight after every brocante, post as soon I had made or done something, blog at least every couple of days. Alas, I find myself miles behind and desperately trying to catch up once again. Sigh.

So, where to start? I was just looking at Petite Michelle Louise's Grey Dey Thursdey post, so lets start with a bit of GREY ;-). Here are a few recent brocante finds in glorious grey -




This lovely old lace might have started out as a steely blue. Maybe, difficult to tell. It has faded to a gorgeous grey/ivory and is so perfect for my craft projects -




I am so bad at keeping my promises. I know I said a few days ago that I would post photographs of more of those beautiful antique French clothes the next day. I failed miserably, of course. But as white goes very well with grey, I'll post some of the photos now.

This full length night gown really is the most amazing one I have come across. I am sure it must make you feel like Royalty wearing something so incredibly fine. This was the little teaser I posted -


and here it is -










I think while I am on a roll, I'll prepare another post and schedule it for tomorrow ;-).

Until then, thank you for visiting and toodlepip xxx

Hello Liz,

Sometimes real life gets in the way of blogging but as long as you are having fun, that us all that matters. The faded lace is wonderfully aged. We are certain that you will create something very special with it.
