Bargains....and don't we all love those?

The weekend before last, mum and I came across one of those garage sales that you know will be THE garage sale of the wasn't like walking onto a driveway, it was like walking into a store - a store filled with all things French, romantic and vintage. And the best part? It hadn't been advertised in our local paper, so we didn't have to kick and fight our way through the fabulous finds! It was just pure luck...I found lots of fun items - frames, small chalkboard napkin rings from Pottery Barn (never opened!), antique shabby-chic plates, a gorgeous '50s looking cake top, and a chalkboard with the words "Cafe de Paris" written across the top - perfect for the kitchen to write down a grocery or to-do list.

Although this past week was less than successful, to be honest, I've spent the last 2 weeks admiring all these fabulous bargains...
