As promised here are some of the bits and bobs I picked up in France- two printed cropped blouses, one is Agnes B (she says smugly) and both were €2. I was as surprised as the next person to find a Peter Pan collar blouse in rural France but there you go, some stylish granny probably wore it way back.
I also loved the look of this little tea cup with its pointy handle. Also I couldn't not post a photo of the "giant omelette" event which took place in a field on Sunday- 12,500 eggs were used, as well as buckets of mushrooms and lardons. There was dancing to accordion music which was very French, and very cute. Talking of cute, I also couldn't not show Toffee, last seen as a kitten here , and now quite a handsome young man.
