The Thursday Three – Esperaza Vide-Grenier

Let me just say that I am not unaffected by what is happening in the world. I may be idyllicly located now, but life is not rose-tinted and terrible things are happening elsewhere.

My child works an inherently dangerous and stressful job in a vulnerable, major UK city;she and her own little family live on the edge of what is now a volatile, overcrowded melting pot. Yes, I worry.


But I will live this life without letting fear and angst chew up my soul; and I will feed my soul by looking at and listening to beautiful things.

I found these at the Esperaza VG; large hand made and glazed lustre bowl, embroidered table linen and a tasselled lace curtain that exactly fits the front door to keep the big bugs out. I have neglected my French stuff Thursday Three slot this year. It will be remedied.

    Of course you aren’t immune. I am not either but I applaud and echo everything you say. One cannot go around in a state of frenzied fear of might-bes. That is no life. On the other hand I am rather sick with envy at your fabulous finds. Are you sure your house will be able to take all the things you are bound to hunt down now that you are actually perpetually in brocante and vide-grenier land? 😉

    Looks like great stuff! I love the blue/white table linens.
    We went to the brocante at Limoux, but I hadn’t seen that there was a vide-grenier at Esperaza. So close!

    It was a fun day 🙂 I am still washing all the lovely matelesse throws and lace tablecloths I bought 🙂 And my 6 euro standard lamp is all plugged in and ready to cast its’ ambiance over my bedroom 🙂
