Paris SIMP 2011 - I'm in total awe of all the people who had their photos up on the same night or within a couple of days ... however in my defence after two weeks I'm 11 months quicker than last year!! This year being my second visit meant I went with a clearer idea of what I hoped to buy and I was so happy with my purchases, I hope you like them.
The lovely shabby unit was from an Italian seller and although I dutifully noted everything down I cant find her name in the Catalogue, I thought it was Scarpe e Pelletteria where I also bought the lantern & 3 pictures in a later photo. The porcelain sink which has a lovely tiny china plug was from Zapatillas as were the slippers.
The beautiful hand painted plates were from Paris Miniatures and the little ice cream cones look so real. Their stand is understandably always so busy
The lantern & lovely shabby pictures were also from Scarpe e Pelletteria.
Basket, fabric bolts, cotton and lace ... not sure where for yet but I just liked the colours
Fabulous shabby chic chair and little girl teddy bear from Lea Frisoni, ah so many beautiful things on her stand .....
And here my pièce de résistance .... I went hoping to buy a cushion from Rosanna for my chicken house and she so kindly sold me this one from her display, she is a lovely lady and chatting to her was a pleasure :-)
Shown here with two of the chicken plaques from Petits Bonheurs
Just sneaking in a couple of pictures of recent purchases from Cathy Rohal, the Chicken hook, jar and the tea holder she made for me ... I love them
and her shabby pink jar and cake stand, such detail in something so tiny and delicate is incredible
And finally a few pics from my wanderings around Paris, I was on my own a lot but felt very peaceful and relaxed and enjoyed my time with Kris & Catty so much
Ah little cherubs
Now I need to get on and get my lovely purchases on display, no more hiding lovely things away in boxes ... that's my new resolution.
