the cat at number 19

i had a great time at the cwc drinks on friday night at galerie montmartre.. thanks tess & shelley! if you haven't already been to the gorgeous galerie montmartre, then let me tell you it's worth a visit.. the scale of the vintage posters is awesome & the colours are so yummy and rich. in this day & age of mass production & re-production it's hard to believe they're all originals and once they're sold, that's it. i loved how the posters up on the walls seemed to have a real depth about them & it almost seems a shame to put them behind glass once they're framed. anyway, this is going somewhere i promise... a couple of years ago, the husband & i really liked this little house & even put a bid in at the auction. the house was styled to perfection (the owner was a co-ordinator of design exhibitions) and i remember really loving a framed poster of a black cat in a racing car that they had. so how amazing was it when i arrived on friday night, only to see my old friend up on display!
