When she was a teenager she always told me that after I go to that big brocante in the sky she would throw out all of my old shabby treasures and fill the place with new Ikea furniture!
But oh!....how things have changed since Mademoiselle has started to trade as passionatelyparis on Ebay!! She recently came to stay for a few days and instead of raiding our armoires she went off truffling for her own treasures without me!
All I can say is that over all those years something must have sunk in as she came home with some divine old treasures! I would have brought most of them home myself and almost had to try and truffle away a few items as she packed for the ferry home!
Que sera sera.......................whatever will be!! Perhaps I was useful after all?
