Friday in Montauban
Our last full day has been spent in Montauban - looking through brocantes and antique shops. Margot G. actually said that I was like a truffle snuffing pig looking for old textiles, trims and bits. I'm not sure if that is a good thing...but it made me laugh and I kind of agreed with her! I found a beautiful Victorian wedding crown holder - made out of pressed metal and red velvet, piles of old religious cards from the 19th century, old embroidery pattern books and a handful of early agriculture plaques from local French farms. It's been a learning experience - shopping for treasures with 18 women - especially since most of us have our eyes on the look out for similar pieces. Tomorrow everyone packs up and heads home - it's been an amazing week with wonderful experiences had by all - I am already planning our next getaway...anyone game??

You are already planning another magical trip? Can I come? I'm game!
I have followed you in spirit every step of the way.
You bought the crown right? It's the most beautiful thing.
I'd love to make the trip!
Please do a "Brocante" and Flea market trip, and I am SO THERE!
