Sunday Brocante ~ Touques ~

So the snow I was so completely blissed-out about last Sunday?  Still here.  I don't think one single tiny flake of it has melted, Ce n'est pas possible...because it has been below freezing here (WAY below freezing here!) for the past seven days.  If I sound a tiny bit grumpy-- it's only because although I adore la niege--the bone-chilling, teeth chattering cold?......Not so much.  Ironic, I know.

When we woke up this morning, the thermometer read - 11C degrees....minus-eleven-degrees.  That is about 12F.....C-O-L-D.  But the sun looked like it might try to sneak out between the clouds and we figured that might get us right up to freezing--so we made plans to get over to the brocante in near-by Touque...only 10 minutes from our home.

Do they look cold enough?

There were only a half a dozen vendors there--normally there would be double, due to the weather I am sure.  The snow served as a backdrop for some of items displayed....

But the cold also gave us an excuse to duck into a little brocante-shop also in the village square to take a quick look around and thaw-out.  The shop-owner was lovely and I took a few pictures while French Guy chatted with her and juggled our bundled-Petite Fille so I could look around.

 It is a small shop but she has some wonderful things! 


This hotel board caught my eye!  Fabulous-don't you think?  It was a bit over my budget (a big-bit) and I would have a hard time listing it in the shop when I have the PERFECT wall for it in my house!

I was happy that we ventured out, sniffles, cold toes and all.  I found a few great pieces to add to the shop this week--as well as a few more to add to the 'Wish List' for next time!  That hotel board.....?  J'adore!  That one is for 'moi'!

Have a wonderful week ahead mes amis!  
Stay warm wherever you are....
