And lots of people watching whilst having one of these...
And there was lots of sun and fun on the beach with my hosts. Here are Little Thing 1 and 2...
And here is me on the beach - (as I see it anyway!) pretty glamorous eh?
But I thought that you might be more interested in one of my little outings - to the Brocante?
I make no apologies for the following totally indulgent photos of fabulous, vintage gorgeousness!
Oh my, those vintage linens are exquisite (unfortunately, also exquisitely priced!!)
The whole street was filled with tatty vans, which were unloading the most amazing treasures.
Nice bit of enamel ware coming up...
The dark table and tall cabinet at the back are made of metal - they have been stripped and polished, and were totally amazing. I loved them - unfortunately the luggage allowance on Ryanair would not have stretched to one of those though! But great ideas for Gorgeous Things methinks!
Mmmm, some girly stuff on this stall!
And some lovely lighting - as you know, I love a pretty chandelier...
It seems a bit disrespectful to just dump such gorgeous lighting on the dirty gravel, don't you think? I really, really wanted to "rescue" some of these!!
There was lots of stuff on view at this street Brocante, and, having never been to one before, it was really interesting to see what was on offer. The lighting and the linens were stunning, but I thought the furniture, china and glassware weren't a patch on the the amazing variety you can get at an English antiques centre (mention no names, but hey, it's true!) And, I guess, partly because of the Euro, the prices were really high.
So, back home now, and I feel refreshed and eager to get on with all my ideas for my Gorgeous Things. Starting with the opening of the Gorgeous Things Online Shop (see the link in my sidebar), where I will be offering various interesting bits and bobs over the coming weeks.
