the late summer loot shoot

by Sharon Santoni

[blank]I am really loving these late summer fairs.  Having kept the month of  August deliberately quiet, I am now picking up speed again before my tour starts in just 10 days time.[blank]

[blank]The days are delicious, warm and sunny, and in the evenings we can still eat outside, – all perfect!
This weekend saw me out early at a couple of fairs, one outside a château, the other in the middle of a little village.  Forgot to take my camera along, but here are the shots of the goodies I found.[blank]

[blank]I love it all, of course, but in particular the French “give us our daily bread” boards, and the price tags that most certainly came from an old fashioned grocery store.

[blank]I also bought a huge bunch of gladioli, not a flower I normally go for, but I just couldn’t resist the colours.  And then to my delight I found a lady selling her hydrangea heads for drying – just what I needed![blank]


[blank]Take a look through and tell me what you like best.    My new store is still not on line, but in the meantime you can contact me directly if you are interested in buying anything.

Thank you for stopping by![blank]

I would love to have one of those bread boards! And that has to be the cutest dog I have ever seen!

Beautiful post! It is still hot in Texas! Loved seeing all your lovely photos! The pic of the dogs under the tree is my very favorite!

All the loot you found Sharon is so lovely but those pups of yours always steal the show. I don't know of a single person even off-line that has a better pair of cuties. Every time I look at them, I am more tempted to get a puppy of my own. XO

How can you stand to let anything go?! Everythings beautiful!

I love the linens. Not a lot of such items here in California. Sigh….

I'd be ever so happy to purchase the adorable dogs. (Wink!)
