Grandmere`s tooth...........

A wonderful morning truffling for treasures in the early morning light at a village brocante. 

A Paris department store box that had belonged to a "Grandmere".

I really didn`t care if the box was empty, the label was enough for me!! A quick peek inside and the treasures came tumbling out.....some still with their original pink Paris labels intact.

I bought it without truffling through and couldn`t wait to get home to take a better look!

As the morning wore on the crowds began to appear and it was almost impossible to jostle through the stands. 

Time to stop for a well earned coffee and to sit on the pavement " people watching".

A little old lady as frail as a tiny bird sat alone at the next table deep in conversation with herself. Well into her eighties or even nineties she was chatting away and I wondered who in her imagination she was talking to. 

She happily talked away for while and as she got up to leave she picked up her willow shopping basket  I saw it...........

A tiny "Bluetooth" mobile earphone tucked into her ear! 

I am SO behind the times!!!

A la prochaine mes belles!

  1. That is too funny! My own mother uses a bluetooth and I don't own one. We are in the same boat, Shirley. I don't want people to think me crazy, lol.

    1. I wouldn`t even know how to switch one on let alone use it! Glad I am not alone!!

  2. Hello My Dear,
