i never knew the charm of spring
i’m going to miss these hearty morning breakfasts in the sunshine. i don’t think i could eat this much bread and this many croissants anywhere else in the world and not be rotund by now. tomorrow’s my last full day in paris and it’s going to be jam packed from the crack of dawn till sunset. it’s hard to believe it went so fast.
today was long hard work but we made some major moves! running around at clingancourt proved to be an all day endeavor. it was the first time i’ve ever covered the entire marked in one fell swoop and it took a good 8 hours. my clients had incredible taste and were sure about what they wanted which made all the difference.
among other treasures they got these chairs but this picture doesn’t come close to doing them justice (they’re chartreuse mohair with an incredible patina).
this chandelier was too tall but we fell in love with the amber and turquoise beads circa 1920.
we scored great beds in the way back where no one dares to go…
and found hand carved pieces throughout this incredible market. quel candy store it is! this is just a sampler, i didn’t take a lot of shots cause i was mostly running around like a nut, but you get the drift.
there’s still so much to see and do and experience here in paris, i really want to hit this last exposition but don’t know if it will happen. we’re headed to vanves and then to some local brocantes in the 12e and 16e for starters. i’d love to have this sconce for myself.
if i have an ounce of energy left tomorrow i’ll recap our day, but it’s supposed to rain and i have a feeling i’m going to need all my strength to push it one more time. if i don’t pass out now there’s no telling what will become of me. so more tomorrow and hope all is well on your end. i’ll be stateside by monday night, so for now à bientôt!
