Probably the best thing I did yesterday was to ignore my inner hermit who said, it's cold, it's snowy, stay home, and took myself to the Farmers' Market where, every Sunday, there is an antiques market. I knew what I wanted to find, but suspended all expectation. I hadn't been in a long, long time and gave in to the urge to go.
And I found what was on my mental list very easily, And my best find was Jan of Mélanger, Vintage Cottage chic . Oh, joy!
Here's what I got from her: some pieces of lace and.....a birdie planter!!
From Roisin's shop, a creamer Made in Canada, and The Doves' Nest, a book of Katherine Mansfield's unfinished short stories.
And these two rosaries, the blue one from France, the pearly one from Italy. (The book they rest on, Balzac: Le Lys dans la Vallée, is one my aunt gave me years ago.)
