bonsoir mes amis, ça va? it’s close to midnight and what with it being a travel and full on work day, i daresay je suis un petit peu fatigué…

he’s kind of my hero cause he has warehouses and a showroom full of swirls and curls

both attached and freeflowing on everything from furniture to mirrors to lamps and cornices

if he finds a treasure he creates a mold so it lasts forever and can can be repeated in different applications.

he’s got legs and flowers and carved bands.

i guess some people are just soulmates, not in the romantic sense. more like undeniable kindred spirits.
