If only you knew how my armoires are brimming with shabby chic treasures here at the chateau! After 28 years of truffling for timeworn treasures in France it has been yet another full year of trawling the brocantes to see what morceau catches my eye. Soooo......it`s the end of the year and as Noel approaches I need to make some room for next years finds. I am going to spend the next few days adding items to my Etsy shop as I sort through them. I never sell reproductions or copies...only the real timeworn treasures I find on my truffling trips!! Voila mes belles!

Here is my blog for the latest news from the chateau www.simply-chateau.blogspot.com

This is a shabby chic antique French book perfect for any projects.


Just-Jean-Etienne ROY

This is an edition printed around 1890/1900

The turquoise blue cover is beautifully timeworn and I only wish I had more photograph spaces here to show you more details!

The inner cover has a divine old hand written script annotation showing it was a school prize.

There are some wonderful print vignettes and the pages inside are all old tea colour. It is battered and timeworn and although there are loose pages nothing is missing.

As this book is so shabby chic with loose pages it would be divine for a cutter for projects! If you need the Marie Antoinette name for insode brooch projects etc it is here a thousand times on old tea coloured paper!! The vignettes would frame beautifully too.

Even better just leave it tied with a ribbon as a cofee table confection perfect for a French fix when you have a quiet moment!

Just wish I had more photograph spaces above!!

A la prochaine ..............
