'Vide grenier' finds

 A national 'sport' in France is 'vide grenier' : empty your attic and sell it in a charming little village.  I found some treasures which I used to make necklaces.


A waxed linen thread that crochets a little though and gives a leathery look.





The traditional 'Pastis' collection.




A ''winebottlegreen'' old glass necklace was pimped into these :

Dat eerste collier doet me een beetje denken aan dat van Ann! Mooi!
En dat groen is zo 'lush' - super!
Ik hou ook van vide greniers maar tegenwoordig durven ze nogal wat vragen op die rommelmarkten hé? :)
