The part of dealing in antiques that I love the most is the hunt, trying to get something that you really want, yesterday was a failure..........I was in love with the most wonderful tapestry of a horse, late 17th century drop dead colours............but not to be!

Two elephants instead........

My great friend and colleague France Lasserre is exhibiting at an antiques fair in the Paris suburb of Chatou,  known as the "Foire nationale aux Antiquités, à la Brocante, et aux Jambons" Her signature stand of blue linens and decorative antiques is always a success. The fair finishes this Sunday.

Meanwhile back with the children's drawings the beginnings of a first book are fluttering to life. Names and characters are developing...........mice, clowns, dogs and monsters,  they started on Children's Name Pictures, but they are escaping into their own adventures

More can see more characters by clicking on the clown
