Bruniquel on my Tod


This fortified market town of Bruniquel occupies an amazing  position high above the Aveyron and Vère rivers. Ancient houses, a belfry and the ruins of the medieval fortifications are spread out over several levels. Dominating the village is the imposing fortress built by Queen Brunehaut (534-613), daughter to the Visigoth King Athanalgilde and wife of Austrasian King Sigebert, grandson to Clovis. Just thought I would mention this. 
So as they were having a Vide Grenier today and it's only a 15 minute drive from my house, I thought why not. Here are a few things I saw and bought.

  
They both look so fed up


Had to buy a just a few
 
These were lovely but I managed not to buy



Did buy this little beauty
 
Now wish I had bought this

 
Poor Dominique

 
Ann Miller an American Beauty

Hand made Birdboxes


 So after an hour or so pottering I headed of down this gorgeous little street. Had a couple of hours all by myself and could browse as much as I wanted and yay the sun came out to play.
