Good morning! Wouldn't this pretty pink flowery pitcher sourced by @farawayplacesvintage be a star on your table? Likely from the 1940s, it is sturdy and elegant.

I'm not the only one who buys unnecessary groceries because of the packaging, right?  This bottle was filled with a salted caramel syrup, which I'm sure I bought during a "quick trip" to the store for things like bread and juice boxes.

Beautiful french mirror bought today for our bathroom! And lots of monogrammed square pillowcases!

If you looked around my house and wondered, "Which of these things did she buy new?" the list would be really, really short.  Major appliances, electronics and a couple of upholstered furniture pieces would be the beginning and pretty much the end of the list (we shall ignore the kid's rooms on this tour). There are just too many good, formerly owned things out there still full of beauty and function.  And history.  Don't forget the history.  How many pretty blooms has a vase held?  Whose reflections has a mirror thrown back?  What toasts have been given with a wine glass?  Those mysteries are my favorite part.

These four vintage glasses are hand painted with sprigs of sunny Mimosa. It's a grey, rainy day here but I'm heading for an afternoon rummage at a little covered market vide grenier. I'm sure I'll find some little treasure to brighten the day!

Saw this super Citroen retro van in town yesterday. Oh how I would love one of these to transport my vintage treasures in. I'm off to my local Brocante. Happy Saturday!

Crossage is a street game played in a very small area along the border of Belgium and France.  A team of (usually drunk) people use wooden mallets to knock wooden balls down streets toward targets (usually beer kegs). The game has been around since the Middle Ages, if you can believe it, though the targets were, presumably, something different.  Still, I can guarantee that, even then, beer was involved.

I may have a problem.  They're just too cute to leave behind.  Creamers and mini pitchers will never find themselves homeless again once they cross my path.

Person who invented daylight savings time: 'I know, just when they've started to recover from the dark depths of winter, let's steal a precious hour of their restorative sleep. I'm such a genius.' Happy Sunday.

Don't get me wrong, I am so looking forward to the trip we have planned this coming June, but on a cold day like today, when I dream of a warm summer vacation, my mind races right back to the Provence-Alpes-Côtes d'Azur region of France.

Awoke to find a dusting of snow on the ground.  Snow!  So I shall think positive and use it as an excuse to keep my cozy winter throws out a little bit longer.  If you need me I'll be over here, wrapped in a blanket next to the fireplace, gazing at the touches of springtime that have popped up inside my home.

My current home is gardenless.  One of the downfalls of living in a rental home is the "please don't dig a big whole in the yard" clause, or whatever the lease actually says.  So while I wait to get back to the big, sunny patch that I carved into the backyard of the home we actually own, container gardening it is.

So I'm pleased to report that my potted hydrangeas survived the winter living in my garage.  Yesterday's job was trimming off the last few remaining, dried up blooms and repotting the bushes into larger containers.  Fingers crossed they live through the transplant!🤞🏻

A couple of years ago I bought a basket on a brocant. I said to the man there was something inside the basket and he smiled and said "Whatever is in there is a gift Madam". It turned out to be the whole life of a lady in lettters and postcards. Together with a friend we have now managed to date all letters and and put them in chronological order ( first letter i from 1893) and we all ready know a lot about our lady. We will put it all down in writing and then see if we can trace her family to return it all. It was obvious that the seller at the brocant had the basket as part of a house clearence so maybe the family will be pleased to have it all back and if not we have relived what seems to be a lovely and interesting life of a women who seemed much loved.Here is one of the hand tinted cards from the basket. Just love it.

I have tried this found lampshade on every stick base in my collection and then today I realized it needs to be hung from the ceiling. After fabric refinishing, of course.

If it's old and white and has a handle and you can pour stuff out of it, it's probably coming home with me.

These grain measures - double decalitres - are made of wood and bound with metal straps. We take out the internal metal cross pieces and they then make fantastic "cache-pots"

Next week is the start of carnaval season in Belgium.  One of the most famous happens in the small town of Binche, just a few kilometers from my old home in Mons.  The parade, a UNESCO recognized event, is made up entirely of men and boys born in the town of Binche, throwing blood oranges.  The costumes they wear are rather unique and are, traditionally, never allowed to leave the city limits.  But if you happen upon a stack of Gilles de Binche pants while shopping the brocante in Waterloo, it's ok to buy them, right?  I mean, it wasn't me who took them out of the city. (If you're interested in a little more info about the parade, there's a link👆🏻to my blog posts about the ones we attended.)

From The Encyclopedia of Mother's Advice, published in 1905...."To restore from a stroke of lightning, shower with cold water for two hours.  If the patient does not show sign of life, put salt in the water and continue to shower for an hour longer". My motherly advice, circa 2017... Chocolate heals wounds better than a cold shower.

In Memoriam... Yesterday, my favorite ironstone piece fell to its death after being kicked off the table where it sat.  When you have a nine year old boy, it's not unusual for feet to be where they shouldn't.

When your husband is in the Navy, he goes away a lot.  Of the first eight Valentine's days that we were together, he missed six of them.  So today, the thing that makes me happiest, is that he's home.  That, and hydrangeas in blue glass.

I had one in my hands. And it was cheap. So cheap. 'I'll circle back,' I said, 'after we've seen more of this market.' The glorious market at Porte de Vanves was sunny and busy that Saturday morning and the jam pot was (of course) missing when I returned an hour later. 'Never mind,' I said aloud, smiling. 'It's just a pot.'
Also: to the person who maliciously purchased that pot on that suddenly gloomy Saturday: I forgive you. I've got two now so I win and I'm not still mad at you.
