This delightful little flea market find was given to me by my dear friend and wonderful hostess/guide in Paris - she knows who she is - thank you so much for making our trip so memorable! This tiny little red sampler, given in an antique AVAS box, is a true delight and I am sure there are many envious people looking at this. I absolutely love it and maybe I will chart it for iStitch Designs?
I have yet more gifts to whet your appetite so please visit with me again.
Of course, at the AEF I had to purchase some scissors from the master of scissor makers, Monsieur Roulot of Nogent. These were not actually the scissors that I had intended to buy but I did not realise that he would not take a bank card and I did not have enough cash on me to purchase the scissors of my dreams. Yes - they were that expensive! I realised, once I returned home and counted the remaining Euros, that I did indeed have enough cash but I was worried that I would leave myself short for the remainder of my trip! So this means I either have to contact Monsieur Roulot or take another trip next year.
And check out these antique bobbins - aren't they gorgeous? I had planned on using these to tidy up some ribbons but I cannot bear to remove the original threads or to untie the bow.
And more bobbins, one wound with delicate lace and one empty. I am sure I will find something to wind on this one.
And on my return from France I discovered that some of the Spring bulbs in my garden have started to flower. Tiny snowdrops, primroses and and crocuses to brighten up a dull garden and the daffodils are up but have yet to flower. I love Spring flowers!
Thanks for visiting
