To say the least its eclectic……I’ve always bought what I like and the result is rather a mish-mash, however it’s ‘my mish-mash’ and as you have seen from my stints at blogging, some of these pieces hold special memories.
We have display pieces; a dresser and shelves and in addition a unit that is in sections and fits around a radiator…..the room that houses these items is currently the dining room but in the next few months it will become a kitchen, while what is now the kitchen will be extended and become a dining/family room……
The problem is that I currently have 3 walls for display, but somehow I’ll only have two in the new extension (how did that happen?) This will mean that I have to make some hard choices and /or rotate displays…….
My parents gave me the Pornic birds, and the dresser was made to fit them, not the other way around, so they are a definite
I have three sections of Desvres…… then there are some Broderie items, some Normandy décor and some pieces by Brisson, and of course there are the fish…..and so we go on… does anyone have any tips for prioritizing ?
One guest commented on the elderly Breton lady on the right (she sits on our dresser over seeing the dining table) that he thought she could 'sour milk'!!!
I guess she'll be souring milk in the new extension too -
The little girl holding the bird (on the far left of the picture below) is much restored but we love her just the same. For some years we rather thought that she was eyeing that bird up for her dinner but a lady at a fair in Pont Aven corrected us and told us that she is just talking to him.....phew !!!
PS. In each Quimper Club Journal we feature a form or décor – this time it’s the turn of Ivoire Corbeille décor: please send your photos (jpegs preferably)for inclusion in the Summer Spring issue - many thanks…
