This weekend at the Vide Grenier I met Yvette's husband, and he sold me her childhood laundry-labels...
... and then I met Yvette herself,
It was a very pleasant way to buy French vintage. I'm going to use the label-tape like ribbon... watch this space!
Tomorrow I'm off to Edinburgh to help celebrate my dad's birthday. It's a real flying visit but I'm looking forward to seeing him.
