  2. Francine, small world indeed! this is a fabulous portrait of Carla Bruni! it would look wonderful in just the right bedroom... and that covered "cup" with the "MA" initials.. it is slated to go for $30k so it is a very special piece. Do you ever shop the auctions in France?

    So good to hear from you, will pop over. I'm sure you're off somewhere wonderful soon!
