The flea market and a winner!

bonjour friends!
after the rain yesterday
here in paris..
today is a gorgeous,
fall-like day.
my favorite time of year!

i've been busy cleaning up
my flea market finds
and getting ready to put 
them in my etsy shop.

here are some photos from
sundays trip to the 
porte de vanves
flea market..

i can't get enough of 
the cafe au lait bowls
and the vintage yogurt cups.
the woman i bought the 
blue cafe au lait bowl from
(top picture) 
told me that the large bowls
in fact were not used for cafe au lait..
but for a vegetable soup 
mixed with bread and red wine.

some of these old mustard jars
may have come home with me.

i do enjoy a trip to 
the flea market!

the first
soup of the season.
hannah is home with a head
cold today..
nothing like a bowl of 
homemade chicken soup
to ease those symptoms.

i'm starting to get back in 
the groove in the kitchen...
after a summer of 
not cooking at all..
i'm happy to be meal planning
and shopping the markets
here in paris.

and finally..
a winner!

Oh, I would love any of them..sure enjoy your sweet blog and following you...
