Fleaing France

Last week Mr. Flea, who was home
 checking on his parents and taking care of business
 informed me that my much anticipated package
 ...from France had finally arrived.
 It was a surprise of small brocante finds
 that Simone of Fleaing France had sent.
 Yipee! ...or should I say...oo la la! :)

Vintage French Ephemera, millinery, photos and feathers...

Lots of beautiful French blues...
Simone knows me well....
Look at these old tiebacks and tassels!

Blue Boutons and little porcelain daisies...

...a little old leather covered ledger...

  ...tiny tags...perhaps to use for my own 52 FLEA shop ....

...and the sweetest little porcelain figurine...

  I just love surprises! 

Did you know that Simone's new online brocante ...
recently opened and that she will be hosting
 her second brocante sale beginning tomorrow!
(Wednesday, July 25, 2012)

The collages above depict some of the new items
 in her brocante shop!

I love visiting Simone at Fleaing France! She has the most beautiful photos. I've recently ordered some old books from her and can't wait to get them.

My favorite color is blue, in any shade from the darkest to the lightest. The books I ordered are blue! :)

Say Oui to the Flea! Love it - it would be perfect for a shop near us named "The Lure de Flea". The blues are spectacular, what a fun package from France (or anywhere).
