Here in France, V must mean "vide grenier", which when literally translated means "empty attic".
A Vide Grenier is a cross between a yard sale, a flea market or a car boot sale depending which country you live in!Need a bike?
I bought this little item for 3 euros at the last vide grenier we went to.
At the moment it is residing in the downstairs loo but I'm not inspired by it there.
I get so jealous when I read about all the great thrifty items some of my blogger friends find at Goodwill or Estate sales.
Two experts that spring to mind are Bill @ Affordable Accoutrements, he is the one to go to for beautiful, stunning tablescapes, and Jane @ Mamie Jane's who has the best "eye" for turning other people's junque into wonderful decorative home accents.
I can't imagine that you don't already know about these two fabulous blogs, but just in case you don't, click on the links to see what I mean when I say they are two of the best.
See you in class.
