The French brocante line up: One red nose, one blue eye, five little buddies. Did they all come from the same home? They looked equally loved.
French Husband has soft heart wonder when he sees an old stuff animal at the brocante. Because of it, at the end of whatever brocante I am at, I try to find a favorite and take a photo of it. Today was a jackpot, five little bears.
A collection, a box full of the same item attracts attention, be it a pile of spoons, books, vases, shoes... a line up of bears.
My main attraction at the brocante these days are paintings and African masks. Re-doing our place in Cassis has taken me on a whole new path in designing. The above painting (part of it) I am putting in my online brocante shop tomorrow.
Diogenes, you asked about the bust that I posted yesterday. It sold. So I could not ask the price, that is a rule at the brocante: If something is sold you are not suppose to ask, "How much did you sale it for?" Of course, if I asked and the dealer had said some incredible cheap price like ten Euros I would have screamed, so it maybe it works both ways.
This is another painting I found today. It is a water color. I wish you could see it, I thought it was an oil painting at first. Incredible. I posted a video on The French Muse FB page, please go take a look. And while you are there you will see what my friend Ruth recently found.
Following what I love.
