what I bought at the vide greniers




I know this is a bit late but some of my dear readers wanted to see what I bought at the vide greniers I went to last month whilst in France.....sooo....here are a few pieces....



A box of large, heavy French silver plate cutlery, R loves it because of the nice big scale....note the ladle. I must research the silver marks. From Bach.



My absolute prize, 5 choir boys robes from Caylus, 5 euros each!!


Beautiful antique nightgowns that I an currently wearing

and fabulous extra large European monogrammed napkins and cloths.

old embroidery thread in a sweet box



adorable children's plastic hangers

more too.......
