A Daydream

The NY Times has two articles that I just read that made want to head to a flea market then a thrift store on the way home. I'm going to clean our apartment and daydream about it instead. Andrew's off today and planning to take Lois out on a walk for a while so I can clean and have mommy alone time, which makes me almost as excited as going to a flea market or thrift store. The first article is from a Paris flea market, which you can read here. I wish there were more pictures, but the article is good. (When I need a French flea market picture fix, I pull out this cute little book and think back to my memory of being at one, sans pictures.) The second is from the style section--a little cottage decorated with thrifty treasures on a tight budget. It's so cute. You can see it here. Happy daydreaming to you.

Thanks for the links! I will definitely be checking those articles out. I just picked up a library book called Vintage French Interiors that I can't wait to look at. Now this is not to rub it in, I am just super excited. I went to the Goodwill today and found so many great things ~ things I want to keep they are so good ;) I hope you enjoy your quiet time this morning!!

oh man, i have got to go back to France and soon. Vide-greniers sound like my idea of heaven. and that little cottage is so darling - did you see the amazing stove scored off craig's list?

i think there is a greater tradition for things being left in the street in America. it doesn't happen nearly enough here...

enjoy your time to daydream!
