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!
