paris is burning

paris hotel boutique is en feu with great new arrivals.... books, books, books. do you read them or just keep them around as props? {no judgement} No matter, these will fit both purposes.
the old testament, from the book of David:
do you really need an explanation...
damn. sorry, this just sold. but it looked so good just sitting there, I didn't want to take it down. Guess that would make it a prop book.
my kinda girl.....
Esme´ of Paris the witty autobiography of the colorful parfumier personality, Esme´Davis
"Anything could happen to Esme Davis-and almost everything did." She was an acrobat, ballet dancer, wild-beast tamer, music-hall and circus artiste and, latterly, parfumier.
Numbers, letters, vintage= art.
I believe this is now the galleria. Antique, San Francisco signage, it's a good thing.
My daughter, Charlotte was born in Boston. Upon meeting her new sister for the first time, my then 3 year old asked where the baby came from, I explained, that she came from God. Her response: "Well, can you take her back to Cape God?" I think we need this.
lovely:
vintage, GLAMour.
now THIS is a cocktail table
vintage Italian glazed garden stool going, going, gone! but still so beautiful.
No matter, Paris hotel boutique is always rife with incredibly, glamorous, vintage,finds. But word to the wise, you have to check-in regularly to get the goods.
