This is a relatively new shop on Ile St Louis, Paris.... Clair de Reve.
As we were shopping for provisions for the apartement, mon ami from Californie, Charlotte, ( I call her Charlotte the Harlot ) and I stumbled across this little gem of a shop.
It reminded me of the movie "LILI" starring Leslie Caron where puppets and marionettes were acting like people in small shows in the parks of Paris.......I could just hear the accordions.....
Or, the Sound of Music when they did "The Lonely Goatherd" Yodaallaayydee!!!!!!
We admired these wonderful pieces of art.... Each with their own distinct personality.
They also offered other clever pieces......Don't ypu just love the Blue Deux Cheveaux in the back?
CTH and I didn't make a purchase. We figured they looked better just hanging than in our unpracticed hands.....
However, I wonder if they have the book "Marionettes for Dummies" on Amazon.....Hummmm. Maybe a surprise xmas present for CTH. I think she'd kill me.
