{Nice Part 2 – Brocantage}

You know that I have a thing for brocante and antique markets and I have a particolar love with French Brocantage. I think they are so unique and special. They really fascinated me. I like to snoop around hoping to find a new treasure to bring at home with me.

Old books…

Tea towels, napkins and silver cutlery…

Crystal glasses…

And this is my treasure. My reward ad the end of a treasure hunt.

A very nice gentleman sold me those bottles. He told me their past. “They came from the pharmacy of a near by old little village. They were used to make some sort of “potion”, it could have been a migic potion”. I was like a child surprised and amazed form this history, it could be a lie but I prefer to imagine and think he was telling me the thruth… It was so passionated…

He showed me all the details. It’s blown glass and the label is inside…

I love to buy things like this , it’s like they have soul. I still have to decide their future place…

I can’t wait to go back to this market and fortunately it won’t pass so long before to get back….

This is it! My short trip to Nice… I have just another short post!

I have so many news ladies for you all…


I’m so happy you can’t even imagine… This is a collage of pics I took this morning with my cell, I know you won’t understand nothing… But trust me…”She” is what I dreamt since we’ve started looking for an appart!

    Il mercatino deve essere stato una favola, io adoro andar per mercatini. Quando c'è quello a Nizza? Mi hanno detto che è stupendo e anche i prezzi sono migliori di quelli qua in Italia...devo per forza farci un giro! Le foto sono come al solito stupende. Qualche giorno fa ho chiesto alla Fede un consiglio per una reflex digitale. Poi mi dovete fare un corso on-line su come utilizzarla! ;)



  • i love the glass bottles- i agree, they must have a soul! glass is my favorite thing to paint, it's such a mysterious subject. these images can definitely inspire some future paintings- thank you for sharing!
