  1. I'm so sorry to have just missed the new exhibit at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs - it was being advertised when we were in Paris, as something wonderful always is, and knowing it would open just after left was a bit heartbreaking.

  2. Rose is the word this year! Everybody is coming out with rose scented products. Very interesting! The Summer Olympics are in Rio this year! Very interesting (LV)!

  3. I'm interested to see what the Met has to offer!
