April in Paris!

Well Almost!!!

The last week of April saw us on a whirlwind 7 day trip to Las Vegas, where we stayed at the Hotel Paris. Some of which, as you can see from the half scale Eiffel Tower is amazingly authentic.
Las Vegas is a strange place in a way and ( to me ) cannot be compared to any other holiday destination, it is an 'experience' and quite unlike anywhere else I have ever been. We were surprised at how busy it was in the hotel, thronging with people which meant there were long waits to get into the restaurants, still there were concellations like the 'Le Notre' coffee shop which had a mouthwatering array of cakes, pastries and desserts......Mmmmm

We had a really fabulous time and enjoyed every minute, including the white knuckle experience of the helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon ;-)

Since our return though I have been overwhelmingly jetlagged, which is why it has taken so long to get the latest stock photographed and onto the site. Anyway, I have made good progress and there are lots of lovely pieces and some rare gems like the gorgeous Art Deco oriental evening purse and the silver plated sugar and cream set. Enjoy browsing!
