I hope everyone had a lovely Easter despite the cold! I managed to get away for a few days just after Easter down to the South of France where we are getting married in June. It wasn't much warmer there I have to be honest, but always nice to have a few days away. We were mainly taking lots of wedding props down, as you can imagine I have gathered quite a lot of bits and bobs as I am basically styling the whole thing myself (!) so we knew it wouldn't all fit in the car in June!
We had a few wedding related meetings, and stocked up on wine from the supermarkets to try out and decide what we want on the big day. :) While there, I did manage to pick up a hefty haul of vintage goodies. (well we did have the car!) I picked up this lovely French bowl from the shop which we are hiring our wedding chairs from. I've seen these bowls in Paris for €30 plus, and this one (which I found stuffed at the bottom of a box!) was only a couple of euros.
Then on Sunday, we popped over to a local brocante. If any of you know the Dordogne area, this market is on every first Sunday of the month in Verteillac. I was a little bit in heaven here! Although it was a bit more expensive (than the house sale anyway!), but compared to markets in London it was seriously cheap. I got this poster for €10, and have seen lots of these at Spitalfields and Kempton for more like £50-60 at least.
Here are a few pics from around the market. I always seem to want the things that aren't actually for sale! Like this little pink suitcase for example!
