I went looking in my my old files and found a couple of pieces of artwork that I did during that time 10 years ago. The Via was a cover for our Belle Papier Address book and the collage was sold in 2000. The Travel card was made as a thank you to the Bigelow Foundation, who awarded me an all-expense paid month in Paris. Those were some good, creative days!

My darling and I took a short trip to Paris this past week, and despite a harrowing trip down to JFK in a sleet storm, a three hour wait at the airport for a plane, and a 3 hour "rest" on the tarmac before takeoff, we actually arrived in our hotel room 23 hours after we left the farm. It was a grand time, though, and the weather was perfect, despite the reports back home that we were in a tornado. It did rain, but only at night, or when we were in a museum or restaurant. I never even got to use my gorgeous new umbrella from Kate Abbot! We were half hoping to find the perfect apartment for sale, but to be honest our pocketbook is not big enough to buy us that pied a terre that we see in our heads. I don't have my pix edited yet, but I thought I'd put up some shots from 2007, and the apartment on Montparnasse Blvd.where Angie and I stayed [Thanks to the kindness of strangers] for 2 weeks. This is the apartment in my head!
