tired but very happy...





That is how I felt last night when we returned from spending the day in Bordeaux.

We managed to even fit in a very quick visit to the Salon de Antiquities where we saw many beautiful things and I wish that we could have stayed longer but the main objective was to collect the lovely lady that you see in the photo above.

Many years ago she was used by a costume designer in the Bordeaux theatre.

She is a Stockman mannequin and in fabulous condition apart from a few pin holes on her shoulders which I think only adds to her character and I only wish that she could speak as I am sure that she could tell a story or two.....I adore her.




A demain mes amies, Leeann x

  7. She's beautiful. You were very lucky to find her.

    Just seen your post on Brantome Leeann. We visited last year in September. It's so very pretty.
