There have been rich pickings recently at brocantes, vide greniers and vide maisons.
These items were for a fancy dress evening that we went to a few days ago.
You can never have too many Tupperware boxes, found at a vide maison.
A vide maison is a house or yard sale.
This planter was a vide maison purchase a few weeks ago.
It now houses my spider plant which was a vide grenier purchase last year.
I couldn't resist this pretty little trinket box for 1€.
Two jigsaw puzzles to help pass the time on long winter evenings.
They look rather challenging. 2€ each and hopefully no pieces missing.
Last but not least, Daisy is still with us.
The corneal ulcer eventually healed and she no longer needs the pain killers. There is some scarring which is no doubt affecting her eyesight in that eye but it doesn't seem to bother her. We just administer lubricating eye drops twice a day - more often if we can catch her!
The tumour is growing steadily but she is still eating well and doing "cat stuff". Three nights ago she presented us with a bat in the bedroom at 4.00am. I grabbed her as she dropped it and it flew up into the beams. The only solution was to open all the windows and decamp to the spare bedroom. Come morning, Elvis had left the building!
