Lovely pieces from Paris

I was supposed to stick onto my work bench but… after receiving a phone call from the hubby, I have no mood on my projects now. Tomorrow I will go to Genova, Florence and Roma with him for 4 days. I have never been to Italy before and would like to ask you my dear friends the "Must visit", “Must buy” and “Must eat” in Italy. I will search some traveling info from Google later this evening too. (It would be great if it's easy to find some shops of dollhouse miniatures there? :D)

Since I have no mood in the work now, I upload some pictures of the lovely pieces I got in Paris yesterday.
There were two fairs in Paris: “Paris Création” and “Salon Création Savoir Faire”.

This was the first time I attended both fairs. "Paris Création" is a combined fair with half of dolls and half of dollhouse miniatures.

I was impressed because I have never seen so many lovely and creative dolls in France before but my favorite for now is still dollhouse miniatures. By the way, I had a very important meeting with Catherine and Marie-Laure. :)

The appointment was set at 13h00, in front of Pascale Garnier’s stand. It was a great pleasure to meet and see them both in person. They both were so affable and friendly. We five people had very good time chatting together. Luce (MyFrenchCuisine) took a picture of us. Hey hey! I also go to a treasure piece from Catherine--- an oil painting of lilac. Now I worry if I can find a nice roombox for it. Yes, I am confident I will find it out next year!!(Next Year)

I also found some supply in Salon Création Savoir Faire. Hope that will be helpful for my future projects.
Well, I am going to prepare the luggage and check the travel information. Hope we will have good weather, good mood and good FOOD in Italy this week. :-)
