Flea market finds – Trouvailles du marché aux puces

This past Sunday, my mother and I drove about 2 hours to visit my grandparents. They are 89 and 90 years old, still in their own house and live their quiet little life. Whenever we visit them on a Sunday, we also make a (not so quick) stop at the flea market where we always find something interesting to bring back. This time around, we found a hinged yard stick, an “S” shaped brooch and some alphabet stamps. Some of the letters are missing from the set but I don’t mind. For the photo, I placed the items on an old school chair that my mom brought back from the school she worked at (they were throwing it away!) We have a thing for old wooden chairs, my mother and I!

Dimanche passé, ma mère et moi avons conduit environ 2 heures pour visiter mes grands-parents. Ils on 89 et 90 ans, toujours dans leur maison et vivent leur petite vie tranquille. Chaque fois que nous les visitons un dimanche, nous fesons un (pas si petit) saut au marché aux puces où nous trouvons toujours quelque chose d’intéressant à emporter. Cette fois-ci, nous avons trouvé une règle articulée, une épinglette en forme de “S” et des étampes d’alphabet. Il manque quelques lettres à l’ensemble mais ça ne me dérange pas. Pour la photo, j’ai posé les objets sur une vieille chaise d’école que ma mère a ramenée de l’école où elle travaillait (ils la mettaient au ordures!) Nous avons un faible pour les vieilles chaises en bois, ma mère et moi!
