my town: Lille, France by Linda from Old and Odd

your town

Originally a Londoner I have lived near Lille, in Northern France, since 2001; I am an Artist/Antique Dealer. I previously worked as a Graphic Designer Fine Artist and Illustrator in London but am so much happier self employed, free and financially poorer! My blog is called 'Odd and Old'. Although I am a tad odd I like to think that I am not so very old. ...Ummm...
I really appreciate the invitation from Alexis to guest blog ' Chez Elle'; (especially as I am new to this virtual world blogging lark)... and a bit of a style anomaly!

1. L'amour partout...
2. Brocante Finds/Inspiration. For the last 15 years I have been an Antique Dealer sourcing delights for UK/London clients.
I am now in the process of reverting to my original profession as an Artist. My work is greatly influenced by my Brocante/Flea market finds.
3. Café life rules! and rules! (merde alors).
4. Opera and Cake!
5. Vieux Lille. (Old Lille) Groovy designer led shopping.
