La Brocanteuse

Being at home  immobilized with a bursitis trochanterica ;0) I decided to go a long with a idea that had been in my head for a while. This is the first pictures of what I have done so far. Some of you might recognize the shop, it originally started out as "Borgin and Burkes" from Harry Potter, but now it´s redone as a brocante shop "La Brocanteuse". The interior is just put in to get a sense of how the shop interior will be later on. I´m waiting for the mail to bring a couple of new shelves and still have lots of mini´s to put in.


  1. I did not understand what is bursitis trochanterica but I wish you a fast and complete recovery!!!! your brocanteuse is wonderful, I wait to see also the interior but I know.... it will be fantastic like the exterior!!!!!

  2. Ouch painful condition,hope you feel better soon, but I love La Brocanteuse - beautiful work and love the colour scheme.

  3. That sounds really nasty Annie, I hope you are much better very soon.

    La Brocante is delightful. I hope to get onto mine again (at last!!) next week. Easter time has been very busy with an important family wedding and lots of relatives visiting, next week will seem quietly strange but I am looking forward to having the time to work on my French project - I think it must be over a year since I've touched it! I bought some new paint today, a kind of coloured gesso, so I'm looking forward to trying that out on the interior plaster walls.

  4. I love your "brocanteuse"!!! wonderful colors!!!

  5. Annie I'm sorry to hear you're suffering, that bursitis can be quite nasty stuff. I have major joint problems from lupus and rheumatoid arthritis (one of many health problems I endure) that renders my hands completely useless some days, so I really feel for what you're going through. :( Ouch!
    Thank goodness for minis eh? They take my mind off my disabling conditions. Just looking at your amazing storefront cheers me up so much! You are incredibly talented. :)
    Feel better soon!


  6. I wish you health, sorry to hear.
    Your Brocanteuse is wonderfull, i love every detail i see. Love the pictures you made looking in, it looks so realistic.

  7. La Brocanteuse is just awesome! Really love it! It is so cosy with the lights on :) I hope you have a chance to rest and get well soon!

    Healing greetings from Finland,
