Off to the Troc et Puces.





Out by 10.30 today and off to the local troc et puces.
I love going to these as its my equivalent of a lucky bag when I was a child ! I never know what I will find.
Not so many stalls today but did manage to find some wonderful Manuel Canovas fabric pieces at great prices.
The man who was selling them told me his brother worked for the company, I will be using some of the pieces for making my bags. I have been collecting old French textiles since we came to live here nearly 7 years ago. I love the old linen torchons and mattress ticking. I've just made one bag so far and have started on the second.
Back home and out into the garden again. Planted up three window troughs with trailing geraniums, white with tiny touch of purply pink to them, also added white busy lizzies. Many more pots to go.
Also started to plant up vegetable seeds. So far there are broad beans, pumpkins, butternut squash and basil.
