Husband came back from England and Denmark and I have been waiting for even a bit of sunlight so that I could photograph the gifts he brought back for me from Denmark. The bad news is that he was not able to find the Jeanne d'Arc tea towels and the new edition of Jeanne d'Arc Living magazine is not yet out. However, he did manage to stumble upon a wonderful antique shop that was in the Jeanne d'Arc style. The owner told him that many of the people whose homes are featured in the magazine do shop there. So what did he get me?
I received a few beautiful vintage French monogrammed tea towels. They are so wonderful. I'm not yet sure what I will do with them, but I'll think of something special for them. Perhaps one of them will be used to reupholster a chair seat cover... The shop owner also wrapped up this vintage catalogue for me as a little gift. How kind of her.
It is filled with wonderful illustrations such as this one. They will definitely be fun to use in projects.
And voila, the piece de resistance!
A huge vintage Belgian grain sack. I had a long body pillow that I was planning to sew a cover for so that I could place it on our vintage guest bed in the basement, but lo and behold, the grain sack fit perfectly!
Husband is gone again, this time to San Francisco, but in a couple of weeks he will by travelling to Paris and Munich for a short business trip. I am just wondering if he will have any time to pop into a brocante while he's in Paris...?
