very unCANNY.

this is the extremely lovely laurence duarte. she recently tried to order something from my online shop, but i responded that i was going to france for a month and couldn't do it. turns out she lives in CANNES . . . 10 MINUTES from where i was going to be. seriously, WHAT are the chances of THAT ?

so yesterday she invited me for lunch at her incredibly beautiful home overlooking the entire city of cannes. simply breathtaking.

she served much of the lunch on dishes of mine she had purchased in provincetown (very surreal and what a SMALL world, to be in france eating from my own dishes).

this is the spectacular view from her back yard.

and as if THAT wasn't enough . . . there were TWO 3 month old jack russell terriers that pretty much sat in my lap for the entire 4 hour lunch.
am I the luckiest girl, or what ?

Her house is beautiful, her dogs are very, very, cute, she has great taste in pottery and what a great person she is to open her home to you. What a wonderful coincidence (or twist of fate or fluke) to be able to meet her!
