from today

i didn't have time to take pictures of my week end findings today.. but here are some pictures of what grabbed my attention: an old flyer looking at me, the entry of a building looking very much like out of alice in wonderland and an old citroen ds in a stunning shape :)

sleeping beauty

i encountered this bike this morning, all covered with climbing plant, looking like it belongs to Sleeping Beauty... the second picture is a view of our tube station in the 50's: it looks totally sweet with the little shops around. now we have a shopping mall instead.

week end findings [2]

here is the second part of the findings of last week end: some nice vintage luggage, a lovely pair of bedside lamps, a lemon squeezer, glass plates, sturdy padlocks.
i also moved the furniture (again) in my studio, and decided to associate this lovely book sheves with my danish chest of drawers. and last picture is a little gift for a very sweet friend.
