Curiosités et Naturalia

Come closer my pretties
so that you may see,
I have some treats for you
Don't be afraid and flee !

In celebration of La Toussaint (All Saints Day) on November 1, in France, I thought it most appropriate to share with you some dead things and curiosities. In my ghostly travels, I happened upon a most intriguing individual, Franck Delmarcelle. Franck is an antique dealer and decorator who owns "Galerie et Caetera" in Paris.

Visiting his blog is better than any
haunted house!
An interesting cabinet de curiosité.

Quite a sense of style too!
The living turned dead, otherwise known
as Naturalia, is becoming a hot new trend.
According to Maison & Objet, 2009 brings
a new appreciation for the countryside with
urbanites missing their roots.
Read about Nature and Wood being the big
influences in home design here.
These spinal accessories would certainly
be a conversation
Perhaps Monsieur Delmarcelle can see
the future.
Be sure and pay him a visit here, for a
most delightful evening!

Should you desire more, my lovelies,

discover L'atelier d 'écriture de Eric Poindron.

It is a blog of the bizarre, but most
If you prefer something a bit more tame,
but beautiful just the same...

try knocking at this door for a treat.
Geraldine Gonzalez is a former
shoe designer turned sculptor.
She creates luminous sculptures from
crystal paper that have a sense of mystery.
Unusual and wickedly luscious!

Hope you enjoy the treats!

May Saint Michel, the archangel, protect you
from evil spirits and watch over you during
this wicked week!
Bisou mes ami's!!
