In search for a flea market....

                        .... and end up in the lovely village Castelnau-Montratier 

The lady from whom we rented our holiday home gave me a list of flea markets in the area and one of them would be in this village. When we approached the village by car we were surprised by this wonderful view....

At the top of the hill stands the Église St-Martin who has some resemblance with the Parisian Sacre-Coeur.




When we arrived in the village we only saw a very nice, but small local market so no treasure hunting here.
Still our visit was certainly not wasted because what a lovely village it was.... 







Next on our list was the flea market in the town Caussade and there we had more luck when it came to treasure hunting ....

For instance beautiful old postcards ....



Lots of furniture including this table with enough room for the whole family (and wishful thinking) a bunch of grandchildren ;-)


My husband immediately got inspired after seeing this wine rack .... 


And lots of lovely old linen ....


All sorts of egg cups .... 


And beautiful fish dishes ....


My son David in his element with having a passion for (old) books ....


Even live music ....

And where better you could find this ....


Because we were travelling with the whole family there was really no room for big stuff to take home. So therefore it remained (with pain in my heart) with this purchase .... two lovely picture frames. Once home filled with old holiday photos from me and my mum & one of me with my dad and sisters ....




A nice souvenir with some own (family) history added ....

Have a nice weekend,

  2. Thank you! I feel I've been taken on a sweet tour of the countryside when I read your posts! My husband and I live on an acreage in Oklahoma,U.S., far from you, but somehow your beautiful taste in things and comfortably-worded blog posts makes our worlds seem connected! Our youngest of three sons, Joseph, has spent several months in Amsterdam on staff with a mission group, so I have seen many pictures of your beautiful area and am glad to find a homey blog to look in on occasionally from your corner of the world!
