As you know by now Algernon's Journey, is an integral part of my "Eat,Pray,Love" journey, whose eventual home shall be in France, which will allow me to fulfill all your Antiquarian fantasies, and offer specialty antique tours, and literary themed events, curated to perfection, allowing us to immerse ourselves in Fantasy and Romance even if only for awhile. My specialty will be Antique Books, Antique Lingerie, Linens, Lighting, and Passementerie, but of course I will do my best to fulfill special request. I plan on offering live video flea market trips around Europe , where you get to come with, and if you see something that you can't live with out, you don't have to, it can be yours with out ever leaving home and you will have chosen it, not me. My plans are in progress and I hope to be able to host marvelous Soirees, and turn of the century Intellectual and Artistic Salons in the very near future. It goes without saying that I hope to see all of you and strive to make all your fantasies come true. And lest you fret that we will no longer be functioning here in the States, please don't worry, I will still be maintaining a home, staff, and family here in my native California, I doubt you can take the California girl out of me. So rest easy I will always be a click away,(truly, I'm not so sure that's a good thing). So, in this space show me your collections, tell me your interest, give me an idea of what you would wish for if you came to visit me, do you crave Dumas, or would you die for a chance to ride the Orient Express, perhaps you wish to attend a real Venetian Masquerade. Send me pictures and lists, so I can plan and be prepared to dazzle you when you honor me with your visit, and I will definitely be hosting cooking classes and demonstrations, with guest chefs, with an emphasis (of course) on but not limited to Celiac Foodies (an oxymoron, ha ha ). We will be holding an Annual Masquerade Ball, and regular Jane Austen Picnic's, Shakespeare at Dusk with wine an cheese, and because I love Tolstoy and trains, I hope to schedule, an annual Orient Express trip, and much, much, more.
Au Revoir till . . .
Yours as always,
