Ambiance De Brocante.......



I like nothing better than fossicking around in
 cluttered French provincial style shops
Whether it be bric-ẚ- brac or brocante



jugs - bowls - pots - books - linen

I love the Bric-a-Bracs and Brocantes. Some have a load of rubbish but look hard and there are some great things there as well. Lovely photos. Diane

Dianne, most of the time work is busy and sometimes stressful but when I take the time to read through your past posts and connect with similiar experiences, I somehow feel more relaxed and serene - thanks for that and how about some nice weather this weekend.
You were rather mean last weekend, plus I have lawns to mow.

Oh, I'd love to fossick around with you in these shops, Dianne! Your photos are wonderful – that first one made me catch my breath.

I did make it to the Port de Vanves market and picked up a few things but would love to do the markets outside the city, too.

Wishing you a really terrific weekend! xo – g
