a lot like work

whew, another day running in and out of here, trying to post before it all piles up which is starting to seem impossible. yesterday was a full one at the maison et objet and although i’d really love to go to the saturday flea markets, it’s back to the convention center. i’ve always loved this show but it’s getting bigger and bigger and it’s almost an untamable monster. it used to be a pleasure to walk the show but now seems like it’s a race to get through it all with so much expansion. maybe i better take it down a notch and just see what i see.

thankfully there are lots of silly simple stuffs between all the talk of export, duties and taxes. i love these macaroon soaps and thought the TP was just too cute in toile and lace.

we came across these bags and are looking to import them among many other objets, but that will have to wait.  it’s getting late and i have to accomplish something today. like getting there!

as for my attempt to get to know the immortalized guys, today’s is the caron de beaumarchais. his statue is around the corner. we’re off blvd de beaumarchais and i’ve stayed at the beaumarchais hotel. it’s probably best to know something or other about him. turns out he was pretty busy!

via wikipedia: Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais 24 January 1732 – 18 May[1] 1799) was a Frenchwatchmakerinventormusiciandiplomatfugitivespypublisherarms dealerfinancier, and revolutionary (both French andAmerican). He was best known, however, for his theatrical works, especially the three Figaro plays. i thought i was busy! ok more soon!
