A trip to God's own County... Yorkshire.
Ripley near Harrogate to be precise, which yielded a little bit of France for me at the weekend.
Stall after stall of salvaged and decorative pieces.
The weather was beautiful, and perfect for sitting with coffee and cake at the trendy coffee van...people watching.
Somethings people pick up you think ...why?
Others, you think... Ooh I would have had that...put it down and walk away please!
Tents full of nicely painted old furniture... Armoires, tables, chairs, beds etc
Autentico paint seemed to be the flavour of the month in the chalk paint department.
French linen sheets, cushions, nightshirts, curtains ... Cloth Shed heaven!
A lovely toile de jouy cushion... The old panel of toile depicting "The cut finger"
Nicely backed with rough, French linen....another for my ever growing cushion collection.
Not to be outdone, Mr CS spotted two huge ex factory light fittings which, when re wired are to go up in the kitchen.
