Weekend French Brocante Flea Finds, Place Monge, Paris



The kids have assumed the usual weekend position for a Saturday morning.

Clearly, they both just adore this french luxe cushy sofa from Ligne Roset in the Ile St Louis apartment.

Sit on one, and you’re done.

Most friends who have visited this summer have sat down, and quickly fallen into a cat nap.

We are now hooked for life.

And yes, that is two small children and dozens of stuffed animals.

In Paris.

Do your children fill their suitcases with favorite stuffed friends for family vacation?




So we’re off to the market.

The french brocante flea to be precise.

And what fun finds we did see.

We collect these french metal plaques, and have a fun, colorful collection over our dining room entrance.



Some are canine, horse show, livestock…

Aren’t they all so lovely?



Mike grabbed this iron fleur de lis for my collection – they are so easy to tuck into tablescapes with groups of petite vases and candles, all year long.


Et voila!

My obsession with french monogrammed linens at the brocante came to a shining, glorious, heavenly ahhhhhhhhhhh bathed in a sunbeam moment.


C’est magnifique, non?

A gorgeous tablecloth that might actually fit my 12′ long dining table.




And then…

Another appeared.

A DL european sham for my big french toile bed at home in Chicago.

Oh happy day.

Bon week-end!
