Brocante Adoxography


I am in the habit of stealing words and re-purposing them as I see fit. While a “brocante” does indeed describe a French flea market, its literal translation is “little pieces of nothing” and so sparked the ten year scrapbook of my days that is this site.

In similar fashion, today I am adopting the word “adoxography” and using it as the spark for a new series here on Brocantehome: the gathering of some quotes and thoughts, beautifully expressed on Pinterest and collected here for my own sake, simply so that they are not lost in the scrum of boards relentlessly filled and I can use someone else’s words to express my own thoughts.

Sometimes they will come with the merest of explanation: a because or a why, and little else, so that you can take each little nothing, beautifully expressed and use it as balm for your own thoughts. Sometimes these quotes will be pithy, borderline embarrassing, foolish and beautiful. Sometimes they will be painful, clever and inspirational. All will be credited on my Pinterest Words board…

Ok. Ready? Then I shall begin. And readers? I truly do hope you feel beautiful today…
