Mamó and Daideó's #2

I inherited my collecting bug from my parents. They always collected and still do and their house is a treasure trove of the good, the beautiful and the odd. A few pics.

Teeny paw in a jug. Aw.

I was in Paris for the Emily Dickinson Conference and, of course had to go shopping, most especially to a marché. We went to the one at Porte de Vanves and it was large and pretty expensive. We wandered for ages (we arrived late) and the vendors were packing up by the time I bought anything. My purchases:
A blue lidded Japanese pot for €10

(lid propped against Buddha)
The orange faceted vase is from Maisons du Monde, and cost 39c in their sale.
Love that shop!
A pendant with turquoise and opalites, by Miracle, for €15
An enameled brooch by Breteaudeau, Paris for €5
And here are some market scenes:
