The Thursday Three- Treasure post today instead!

DSC02538Yes I know it’s only Tuesday, but

1) I have my Intermediate French class tomorrow ( for which I confess I haven’t done my homework yet- don’t tell Professeur Dora!) and..

2) I have to put on my special outfit and save the world on Thursday ( the day job is very serious and about  a million miles from what I blog about!) ……

So, we have today –above- 17th century hand coloured parchment map of the Languedoc- Bought on ebay from nice Italian cartography expert. Now need the right vintage frame for it.DSC02540

Right- 90 ish year old parasol- Although Chinese, flowers and butterflies are very much in  stylised 1920’s colours and shapes- one of my very favourite periods ( check out latest terrace bedroom updates) …and….

below- nine foot string of little velvety bobbles on silver cord-  Sold as Christmas decorations, but I picked them up because they have chic tulip bedroom accent colours of red & French blue; so will drape them artistically over something in there!-post renovation & restoration of courseDSC02541
