I love Toile de Jouy and antique French furniture. Nice photo.

An arts and crafts show really becomes worthwhile when it features artists and craftspeople doing their thing!

Re Images: I don't know what the hell is wrong with that blog, but I'm seriously considering canning it. I'll give it another couple of days. Or I might kill it tonight!

I admire people who can make things like this since my manual dexterity is... well, I can turn a steering wheel.

I wish I was there.

I am putting in for grand weather for the next few weeks. MB

These are lovely, and I'm with Bob on the manual dexterity side.

We live in a time with too many so-called 'artists' and too few real craftsmen like these.
