Caught My Eye: Brocante Blue and White

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you all on the East Coast aren't turning blue with cold. For some better blues, check out Sharon Santoni's post on My French Country Home about Flora Liseron transferware from French manufactures Creil and Montereau. It caught my eye this week.

At a Brocante fair in Paris, Sharon spied a 140-piece collection that all belonged to one family. It's amazing. Sharon leads Brocante Shopping Tours each year, taking clients to fairs and antiques dealers around Normandy and to the Paris flea markets - joining one is definitely on my bucket list.

If you were going on one of Sharon's brocante buying trips, what would you like to bring home?

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back on Tuesday with this month's By Invitation Only post... XOXO


  1. I would absolutely love to join one of Sharon's brocante tours! I adore this painting, jumps right off the page. Have an excellent weekend, my dear! xoxo

  2. Good morning beautiful artist! For a minute there, I thought you painted these gorgeous jars, but I saw the initials and that's not you, correct? LOVELY! Have a super weekend and I plan on doing some brocante window shopping this week with my husband on our 33rd wedding anniversary! Anita

    1. Hi Anita, those are indeed my initials - JMH - the J got a bit cut off in the scan. Artwork and photos on the blog are mine unless there is a shout out to someone else. Happy Anniversary! Hope you have a lovely time window shopping! XO

  3. Wow! That is one beautiful picture, the detail is there anything you can't paint? I don't think so....enjoy your weekend. Hope the sun is shining and the flowers are we are finally going to see some sun and hover in the 40's....hope is on the way!

  4. Adore this painting and would love to join one of Sharon's brocante tours! I think I would want to paint every item rather than bring another thing home. I do need a silver soup ladle!
    The sun is shining today but we have mountains of snow piled high everywhere!

  5. Well, I did GO on HER BROCANTE buying trip and I came home with a BAG full that cost me some overweight DUES at the AIRPORT!Worth every penny!Childs watering cans were just a couple of items......then there were those arm bracelets from the SHOW GALS................etc etc............XOXO
    BY ALL MEANS GO!!!!!!!!!

  6. Don't you wish we could tag along?! Beautiful illustration of her Brocante finds.. Hope you have something fun planned for today! xxL

  7. I do love blue and white...beautiful Jeanne...Happy Weekend to you too :)

  8. Sharon has the most enchanting tours from all I have heard. I loved her post on this blue and white collection, very unique!! I would want everything I'm afraid! Beautiful painting Jeanne!

  9. Sorry to get here a little late, I have spent the day at ... a fair! Your painting is just lovely, far prettier than my original photo.

    I'm looking forward to our lunch in a few weeks time!
    best , Sharon

  10. Your art is what first drew me to your site. It has become so incredible since you've been painting something each day. Not that there was a lot of room for improvement, it's always been striking, but the above painting is so beautiful.
    Have a wonderful weekend, I'm heading over to Sharon's site.

  11. Our mother would spend hours every weekend at brocantes in Belgium bringing home every sort of treasure and we inherited quite a bit of her porcelains and silver... And yes, we're still blue with cold here but temps are to be in the forties next week so perhaps we've turned the corner. Have a great weekend, Jeanne!

  12. Gorgeous blue and whites! I would adore doing a tour with Sharon (and you!). I would adore finding vintage french perfume bottles!

    Hope you're having a fabulous weekend. Ours has been busy, but lots of fun. And, best of all…the snow is starting to melt!
    xoxo Elizabeth

  13. Exactly what I knew you would do. So so Jeanne !!
    Beautiful work and beautiful thoughts. I think I can see you in the little flowered dress for Spring!
    Thank you so much for being part of our group, Jeanne. We needed YOU !
