See him? Hiding behind the clouds. Let me do a little artistic rendering...
While there I gave Noriko the quilt I had been making her and Nari. Pooch kindly modelled it before we left.
As well as seeing them both AND being in such beautiful surroundings AND being fed to the gills with amazing food by Noriko (who was simultaneously giving Pooch cooking and sashimi cutting lessons) was the Lalique Museum. I frickin love Lalique. I did a project on his jewellery at Art College and it's been love ever since. Sadly it was no photos in the Museum itself but the outside was pretty nice.
The collection included a number of items I had drooled over in books for the last 15+ years so it was thrilling to be seeing them for real. The man was a genius.
It was a perfect weekend!
