How Emily came to own a Parisian Brocante

My thanks to everyone who has read and commented on it :)  It's been fun to write, and it pleases me very much to know that you have had fun reading it.   As the Brocante takes shape perhaps we shall meet Emily again.

Ah, a very satisfactory conclusion, or is it just the beginning?
Lovely tale, Norma. Thankyou :)

Beautiful. Thank you (or should that be "merci"?)

Lara said...

Yes, she did it!

A lovely story, Norma. Well written! I had a wonderful time reading it. Now I'm wondering if you are planning to have an Emily doll to go with the Brocante?

Monica said...

Oh no ... you can't stop there. How will she restock the the shop, what about the 'marche aux puces', where will she travel, eat, adventure, make friends, and learn about French style ... what if she falls in love, and who will it be with ... heavens above, the list just goes on and on now that you've introduced Emily to her public!

Norma said...

Thank you for all your kind words!

Glenda, the end of the story and the beginning of getting some nails into wood I think and getting Emily's abode 'liveable'!!

I guess that pretty much answers your comment Monica, less writing and more hammering might be a good idea :) However, perhaps you'd like to take up the pen from here, looks like you've got the outline of a novel there already ;)

Lucille, I've always said I'd not have a doll in a mini place because I like the idea that anyone can 'inhabit' that special dream place in their imaginations that a dollhouse represents however I have softened on that just a little and IF I found just the right doll (and I'd have to recognise her right away!) and I could afford her (it always comes down to practicalities in the end, doesn't it!!) I MIGHT consider it...

Norma, I hope you find the right doll one day. Because I find that the right doll, emphasis on the "right doll" can add so very much to the atmosphere of a miniature dwelling or shop. But the doll has to look like it belongs there. I must say I have seen such dolls in miniature surroundings around blog land and I felt that the doll and the miniature structure were a very good match.
