VTT reveal......and the winner is...............................

Last week for my Vintage Thingies Thursday post I showed you four beautiful ladies, I called them photocards but from comments left on the blog I believe they are also known as cabinet cards and I'll be trying to find out more about that.

I asked for ideas on how to display the cards and I was not disappointed by your responses.

However, it does seem that if I want to display both sides of the cards my choices are limited.

Still, I shall be looking for two sided clear frames and thinking about maybe putting the cards under the glass top of my coffee table, having first scanned the backs and mounted those scans onto card.

When I have decided I'll blog about it and show you the finished look.

Anyway....... get to the important part, I hear you all crying!

All the names of those who took the time to visit my Thursday blog and leave a comment were duly placed in a large straw hat this morning and my DH drew out the winners name.

Ta Da!! Drum roll, please.

Chasity @ The Wild Raspberry, it's you!!

Please email me your address and this pretty, hand painted cafe au lait jug & bowl will be winging their way to you very soon.

Here's a little background info about them.

They were produced in the late '50's early '60's in a small town called St Jean la Poterie, which is to be found in the Morbihan region of Brittany. Celtic decors such as these are a reflection of Breton heritage and tradition.

Chasity, I hope you enjoy these sweet vintage items of French pottery and ladies, please remember, that I shall also be sending a little gift to the person who's idea is the one I finally go with. Watch this space...................................
à bien tôt


  1. What a wonderful idea and the prize - priceless! This blogging and sharing is too much fun.


  2. Congratulations to Chasity for winning the lovely gift. What a great giveaway.
    I look forward to seeing your finished project!

  3. Congratulations, Chasity! What a perfectly charming gift to go to someone who's blog is named The Wild Raspberry. Maggie, this is a lovely set. As a winner in one of your blog giveaways, I say, Thank You, Maggie! You are a generous blogger! Have a great day! ~ Hugs from Sarah

  4. Beautiful pottery.
    Another suggestion for the cards - how about placing them in the clear-on-both-sides glass frames and then standing them on small ornamental easles? These are available for displaying plates over here. That way you could leave both sides open to view. If you don't find these on your side of the pond let me know and I'll send you some - they are quite inexpensive.

  5. The cabinet cards are fabulous!! Have you found out why they were named as such? Will love to see what you come up with for them...

    Chasity is one lucky gal. I love the pottery. The colors are so rich!!

    Have a lovely Sunday!

    Those are just fabulous.

    So glad you found my blog, commented, AND started following today.

    I have SOOOOO many questions - - - like, are you a "transplant" to France, or are you indigenous there?

    I'll be coming around more - - -

  9. Well, I see if I just read the FINE PRINT of your profile, I could have answered my own questions!!!! You even used the word transplanted!
