It's the color of eggplants!

I was thrilled to find this vintage pitcher at a consignment-y thrift store in my neighborhood. It's not often that I come across something so very Frenchy and so very purple! Jugs like this one are used in French cafes to hold water...and in this case, advertise the name of the cafe. Sadly, Le Zinc no longer exists in Villefranche ~ near Nice in the south of France ~ but while doing a google search, I found this link. Le Petit Zinc in Paris is absolutely going on my bucket list. I'll be having the oysters and the Souffle au Grand Marnier.

...And a Hip Hip Hooray! goes to Gina from Vintage Junk in My Trunk. Gina won Country Living magazine's Blue Ribbon Blogger Reader's Choice Award. The magazine has not yet announced the Editor's pick for best "Collecting" blog...OGT is still in the running for that one. I'd LOVE to win the trip to New York City! I'll keep you posted.
