BrocanteHome PinBoard

My name is Alison May and all that stops my heart is what you will find here. I like tea-cups and high heel shoes, Russell Brand, vintage postcards, old lace, polka dots and violet cremes.

I blog at Brocantehome.Net, where I am housekeeper in residence, waxing lyrical about life, love and vintage housekeeping...

Have a lovely day won't you?
