The gathering at Back Home in Austin went well. Mari, my friend and owner introduced me to the group before I spoke, she praised me to the point I thought I would turn red: So nice So sweet, I wish I could always be as good as she made me sound! After that introduction I wondered how I could possible say anything to match her generous loving introduction.
But I like to talk, especially when it comes to anything about France, antiques, culture, living, loving, creating...
Mari's beautiful shop is a fantastic mixture of old with new. A modern take on old style pieces, creating a blend that is hard to do, the admirable talent of perfecting style.
My photos with my i-phone do not do any justice, but better than none. You gotta go see for yourself.
Of course I wanted everything. The style the reproductions are amazing! Amazing. If only I could.
Happiness is seeing and letting it pour through me absorbing what I can and letting it go forward in thanksgiving.
Thank you Mari
