Lady "C"
who has major Brocante over here has me always in short of breath.

The true honor is when you come to visit me my dear. I became your follower because your site speaks to me at the very depths of my soul.

I would love to shop and create with you, yet the interenet is as close as we will get anytime soon :)

I dream of your life in the South of Africa...I have a girlfriend who lives out of state and at nights when we can't sleep and feel like inspiring our lates, we will even get on and look at what you are up to, of course we drool and scream over the beauty...Beauty with history, no reproductions of any popular sorts do we see pop out at us, and if there are some they blend in with what history of all things chic with age.

See you soon beautiful soul.

Oh Ps. I love the layers of plates in the plate rack, "Divine" with the best of show.
