Finally a young staff member "found it!"
Let's catch up!
I am writing from Sherborne England, my annual slice of heaven. Sylvia and I just finished leading a great group of women through gardens, manor homes and antiquing. We are busy preparing for next years group, want to come???? You should, it is so much fun
My favorite antique for the shop, so far, is this Tunisian Oil wheel, 12thc. Being nearly petrified wood at this stage I see it as a sculpture, particularly in a modern setting. A Frenchmen whom lives in Tunisia is getting on in age and dispensing with his personal collection. So organic and original!
There has been some improvement since this 5 month old snap, the barricades are down, but another very naughty trait emerged and he now has a veterinarian behaviorist/psychiatrist. Yep, who knew there were such specialists. A friend noticed the Caesar Milan book, not working is it?
More on Marcel later
When in our locally renown pet shop, Wet Nose, I met Bruno and had to share. The outfit catches your eye, but the personality is massive. Mr. Bruno, insists on wearing shoes before he will go outdoors, and ruled the shop for attention....endearingly. Vigorous tail wagging, he held court while posing and relishing the "ooh's and ahhh's" SHOES????!!!
How cool are these? They work like light bulbs turning off and on via the light switch.
How long do they last? Probably your lifetime; 100.000 hours which equates to being on continuously for 12 years if left on the entire time
My favorite container planting scheme for a client. One massive planter wall basket, lined in burlap and planted heavily.
A very French landscape with these massive planters we brought in
