Hi Dianne,

James Tissot is one of my favourite Artists and I did a post once on some of his work.
I love La Demoiselle de Magasin.
I hope that you are having fun doing your shopping and may you enjoy the Festive Season.

I am going to memorize "shopping is a chance to happen on a treasure" as I think it might come in handy this week!
