All things French

Just booked our next trip to Brittany for the end of April.....that's my fix for the day !
 I am hoping to plan some new routes with the aid of my favourite toy Google Earth, I adore maps ,my Dad always planned my motoring trips with me . I used to take my children ( and anyone else that wanted to come! ) on Youth Hosteling trips all round the British Isles. " Clifts cultural tours ter North " one of my friends used to call them ...I still have my diary of the many trips we made.
Anyway I digress... I spent another morning in my studio cleaning and digging with the aid of my friend Janice who loves a challenge.
look what I found !! memories of early Sunday morning at La Mans market when we were there for our annual visit to do Olga's textile fair. The fair used to open later on the Sunday so were off before light to see what we could find. The French are much more laid back than us and we used to join them in the nearest cafe for croissants and strong coffee while we waited for them to decide to unload.
This little lot was my trophy this particular year and they have been hidden in the studio since I moved from Muckleford  a couple of years ago.
 I think they may be 1930's Children's kitchenalia or even a little earlier ? any ideas???
I used to do lots of Kitchenalia and still find it hard to resist.
