what a wild world

the towns people are back out in the square again. right now they’re crooning ‘all you need is love’ at the top of their lungs!

it’s a small world is so cliche. but imagine how exciting it was to run into one of my idols here, myra hoefer, who has a place across from lorraine’s in paris. (i wrote you about her last year) turns out she has been living in healdsburg for decades and has an office and shop. i just wanted to reintroduce her cause she’s so fabulous and her secret apartments in paris are treasures to rent.

her shop is filled with beautiful artifacts and pieces from paris along with local artists. these below are made by someone in san francisco turn of the century french cameos.

so much to do, off to the town square for some crazy karoke after dinner!

    That is exciting about Myra Hoefer. I want to stay in one of her Paris apartments… they looked gorgeous. One of these days, I’m going on a trip with you.

    Hope you sang loud and proud! ha. I’m having fun looking at your vacation pics. It’s a good break while I’m working late.

    It IS a small world. I’ve been lurking here for a few days (I think I was somehow directed here from Black*Eiffel’s blog) and I was just in that exact store about three months ago buying a lamp. I’m Muriel, by the way.
