Young visitor in 19th century costume in Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition

I adore Paris so much that I can only allow myself to watch the film Amelie when I know I will be going there again soon. Nothing sums up the romance and beauty of the city quite like that film, so if I don’t have a trip to look forward to it can make me really quite glum!

With no jaunts to Paris in the diary I should really avoid the Walker Art Gallery this weekend as they'll be recreating the sights and sounds of 19th century Paris in a special celebration of the work of Toulouse-Lautrec. But the thought of seeing families ambling about with their hand-crafted masks, made in one of the several craft workshops we're hosting and the lovely sounds of the accordian drifting through the gallery will probably be just too tempting.
