I am well and love being in France. I miss Sydney off course but I do not compare the two! I believe now that I know my knee situation, that I will be organising things differently for my future exhibitions, hopefully beginning again in 2019. But in the meantime I have been blessed with my family and as they say in France…”Il faut que tu profit”, that is ‘to make the most of it’! We are expecting our Number 4…….. due in February…..again! My three were born in February?
I have continued my physio therapy to the letter but unfortunately that doesn’t change the fact that my knee joint is worn? I will just be paying someone else to do the heavy lifting…..of the kids… and antique furniture?
I thought very much about selling objects of art only over the antique furniture, but that has been my core business all my life. It also makes a huge difference to have them displayed together. At the moment when brown furniture has gone down in value (sadly) is an exceptional time to buy and forward these low prices to my customers. I understand very clearly how precious antique furniture is, with my father being a cabinet maker and seeing it done, all by hand. Remarkable!
I certainly am refining what I choose to buy but always keeping a bit of everything for everyone in the yearly August exhibition sale. If I am filling a 40 foot, high top container, I can also take the time to fill in the spaces with not so expensive pieces, displaying a wonderful array of antiques. Also Julie Singe is a brilliant interior designer and makes the exhibitions look absolutely stunning.
Isabelle and I went to a concert the other day in Fontaines, near Chalon Sur Saone, south of Dijon, and the young violinist was exceptional. I am including a few links to that concert, hope you enjoy! (If you would like to see more then it would be my pleasure to send more links, just email me)
So let me know what you think?
Cheers big ears
