Dusting my nic nacs always brings a smile to my face. Because every time I travel abroad I like to bring back a momento of the journey. Not a fridge magnet or a tropical disease, but something charming and preferably unique. This sweet painting measures just 7in x 5in and was dicovered at a brocante in Cognac last September. It's the best single Euro I ever spent, I would have happily paid ten times that. Thank you to whoever painted this little masterpiece it was worth every brush stroke, we were meant for each other.
And the little jug? That was found in Mallorca last month. After a near worldwide search and at just two inches tall I finally discovered a jug that befits the lyrics of the exquisite Kate Bush track - A Coral Room. In the words of the lady herself; "Little brown jug don't I love thee."
