First of all, thank you so much for all your amazing comments, e-mails and tweets about my little post yesterday. It’s so wonderful to know I made someone feel less alone, and can’t tell you how amazing it is for ME to realize how not alone I am! Cheers to all of you.
On another note, have you guys seen this story about an apartment in Paris that was just discovered (unopened) since WWII??? It’s AMAZING and I would give anything to have been the one to find it and go through everything. Especially since they found a $3 million painting inside by Giovanni Boldini! Turns out the grandmother of the apartment owner was Boldini’s muse and was a much adored actress during Belle Epoque. Also found amongst the cobwebs, art and antiques were stacks of love letters to her tied up with ribbon. Can you even imagine?
I can only imagine that this stuffed ostrich came from Deyrolle- one of the most amazing places I’ve ever been.
Look at the old Mickey!
The painting that was discovered. Gorgeous.
