Look what 1 euro can buy you!


We found a 1 euro stall at the Vide Grenier (like a car boot but the whole town/village gets involved) when we were in France over the summer. We bought quite a few things (some will be going into Anya's Attic) but this picture kept attracting my attention. We left it there but I ended up going back for it later - the guy saw me coming and smiled as he'd obviously noticed me checking it out earlier! It's quite big (up to my knee) and it's bloody heavy! I have to find a place to stand it up as we don't have any hangers strong enough to put it up on the wall!


It's not to everyones taste but I couldn't leave it behind as an awful lot of work has gone into it and for a euro! I didn't spot any saucy ones like Chantal (I like a bit of sauce!) but I did spot lots like this one but no more for 1 euro. I love bargain hunting in France!

Did you see my sister's saucy tapestry? Also purchased in France, naturally! I blogged about it a few years back here - http://dropstitchblog.blogspot.co.uk/2009/04/sew-sexy.html

Oh, I just noticed a comment from you on the original post, so you must have seen it already. Sure you're happy to be given the chance for a second look though ;)
