A lady in my village was calling to say that her 'Grandmere' has emptied her armoire and she just knew that I would want to buy it all after I had seen its contents.
That usually means that I will hate every item but I will still buy it and then pay too much for it so as not to hurt the feelings of someone I will meet in the patisserie the following day!!!
But what a wonderful surprise.........
.........a host of fabulous chateau lace curtains, mostly from the late 1800s and early 1900s.
All very closely inspected by my quality control team of the lace department when I unloaded it all at home.....
It`s all in the wash as I write - and a big " merci" to 'grandmere'!!
So....some delicious lace drapes to come this week, mes belles.
