Last weekend there was a national antique market on at Bordeaux, so off we popped in search of vintage treasures. Only to discover they were slightly out of our price range…..instead we dreamt of all the things we wished we could buy for our little maison.Home sickPretty vintage French linen….I am still in search of my initials. I’ve been looking through antique linen’s since I was little…luckily mu intials won’t change when I get married!We spent the rest of the day wandering the pretty streets of Bordeaux with the perfect combination of pastis, macaroons and a vintage carousel thrown in for good measure.
50 blushing pink roses arrived at my door last Friday & I knew the weekend was going to be good.To keep in with the nude pink theme I opted for my pretty as peach Topshop silk blouse, worn with my new favourite vintage inspired pocket watch necklace Keeper of Time & finished with of course my Coco Rose bracelet to a little French bistro in Biarritz.
I couldn’t resit the chocolate pudding which was even too rich for me.Le weekend was topped off with yet more scrummy treats from our local patisserie. I opted for the Raspberry Bon Bon which was cute a dute & didn’t really want to eat as it was too pretty.
Vintage inspired rose cuff bracelet as seen in one of France’s top fashion glossies Gazelle. Ouh la la.
It looks pretty as punch with a floral summer dress as seen in this months issue of Gazelle.
Cutie Pie’s darling rose cuff bracelets come in a rainbow of colours. But our all time favourite has to be the delightful pale peach rose cuff Coco Rose
