Back in the land of the living!

Bonjour!!!! It`s nice to be back in the land of the living and thanks for all your lovely messages and phone calls. My cold is on its way out of the porte and I am left with a hideous cough that sounds like a cigar smoking donkey! Oh well, at least you will hear me before you see me!!!
So off truffling for treasures this morning and I found this wonderful old wooden marionnette......





He has quite a wicked little face  and I am going to try and research the character as he seems a little like the English Mr Punch........

Isn`t he just divine? I guess he must date from the early 1900s. I have heard of the French puppet Guignol so I`ll check that out.
Two brocantes in the morning...................let me at `em!!!

  1. I promise next time you come to eat with us I will make the house just as spic and span as today. But we had to invite someone else because much as Tony might have tried he couldn't eat all that huge and succulent piece of meat or the two wonderful lusciously divine
    puddings I have made.

  3. So glad you are feeling better! This gorgeous man from paper is maybe Policinelle? It was a beloved toy before around 1900 in France. Take care, Margit
