This week has been ... has been..... well, in attempt not to sound negative --- this week has been "a week"... "one of those weeks" ... "one-heck-of-a-week".... week.
Petite Fille fell ill last Sunday -- in the afternoon, right after we got home from our Sunday 'rain-day' brocante
My parents departed for home, and we start the countdown; it will be at least six months until we see them again in France and just for that I normally get the blues a little.
Today, we set out under questionable skies to a brocante 'vide-grenier' in the pretty seaside town of Villers-Sur-Mer, about 25 minutes away.
Yes, we got drenched in icy cold rain. Yes, Petite Fille is still not 100% and she was fussy and unhappy for the 20 minutes we spent at the sale, finally hiding out in the car with Belle-Mother-in-law ...... But...... none of these things are really in our control, c'est vrai? ... and for a while at least, the rain and cold might be a Spring-brocante theme I am afraid!
But ... On the very 'bright-side' of it all -- we found a bin of wonderful French vintage and antique 'confiture' jars. J'adore! These lovelies are all slightly different, some with bubbles, pretty smooth rounded rims, some with thick heavy bottoms ....
They are all fantastic! I purchased ten and I hope to sell them in 'matched' couples or groups. I would use them for drinking glasses; they are perfect for a cottage-chic kitchen and even better for an authentic French picnic!
Let me know what you think! Would you buy them as sets of two? Or be more interested in a group of six or eight? I would love your feedback as I get ready to list them for sale on Sunday Brocantes, Etsy.
Hope you are having a fabulous weekend mes amis; staying warm, dry and healthy!
