We started out early and headed towards the chateau to explore, do the brocante, visit our antique dealer friend Nelly and then we had a picnic on the chateau grounds. Afterwards we went to our other friend Mo who is a potter extraordinaire. Mo works with black clay with a white glaze. Plus her garden was in full bloom, roses galore.
The group Charland, Barbara and Suzette are fun loving, easy going, brocante loving and love to tease. The week is going by too fast!
Nelly has revamped her entire downstairs. An incredible amount of work and easier to get around. Each of us found something to take home.
In each of the boxes there is either lace or trims, buttons or fabric, notions for hats or costumes or tassels or thread or something in regards to creating.
Charland found an 1800s sample box of silk threads.
1700 to 1800s French
marriage boxes safekeeping important documents.

My favorite was this 1700s divider and statue.

Later we went to my home for dinner, then headed back to Lacoste.
