French Army

The days of war were played out by children with life like soldiers, in their living rooms and playrooms.

These are some very rare french soldiers that children played with, probably very well off children that had the very best. The last picture is of a band. 

Some of these go for as much as $5000.00 dollars a set. 

As a child I remember having war sets that depicted the army and we would play for hours our little war games. You can not find them as easily as we did in the 60's.

Gardens Of France

The first picture is in the 17th Century in the gardens of Versaille. And the last picture is also the current gardens of Versaille. What a striking difference. 

All of these gardens are beautiful in the own. I would not want to take care of them.

French Tea Parlor

I would love to take tea in either of these rooms. For coffee lovers it would be suitable as well. 
Big rooms like these  are a dream come true for me. I must have lived before in a home such as these.

French Dining

Whether it be a small dinner for two or  family dining, or a large gathering, these dining rooms are practical and quaint. Don't you just love the second dining room it is classy and has great potential.
