La brocante


Sometimes when I'm in Paris, the very special places I like to haunt for photos, often  surprise me.  It's no secret that le Marais is one of my favorite places to visit, eat, photograph.... even stay.  Last January  Mary and I took a spin through the Villages St. Paul and found an added delight......a brocante!  These linens caught my eye......but not my pocketbook. I''m having second thoughts!

When Vicki had that lovely giveaway recently, provenance must have known you were having second thoughts. I was so happy you won the linen!

Oh my, the linens are gorgeous! I would be having second thoughts too!

Those linens are gorgeous. It depends on how expensive they were to give it second thoughts.

Just gorgeous, V! I'll have to come here when I have that apartment in Paris—if I can ever afford the apt., I can probably afford some of this. :~}

Love love French linens!!!

Jack said...

They are pretty, Virginia. But, a manly guy like me finds it hard working lace into the decor . . .

Beautiful handiwork, Virginia. Wow.

The Marais is also one of my favourite places in Paris. Beautiful linens and I also love the basket/coffer.
