Where it all begins!

     Chers Amis,  Bonjour and bravo for today is the 7th year anniversaire of L’Ecole du Bon Gout!!

     With the idea of promoting the future of good taste, I would like to address today where it all starts.   Childhood is a period when so many life time perceptions, habits, attitudes, values and ways of looking at things are deeply set in an individual’s make up.   I propose that it would be better for a developing child to be interacting with mainly “real” and beautiful things rather than plastic toys and “virtual experiences” provided by computer games etc.  It is hard enough for a child to figure out the true realities of life when the things and experiences are the real ones.

     The first two photos below, I took last week at Musée Carnavalet in Paris. Note they are playing amongst their toys and furniture especially sized for their use!     What a privileged developmental life they must have had!

     Following these are photos of a number of child size pieces of furniture either currently in stock here in Breaux Bridge, or soon to arrive in the shipment from my recent trip to France.        Let the Bon Gout begin at an early age!
