Theriault’s, a specialty auction house for antique childhood items, set a record auction for a 1914 French art doll by sculptor Albert Marque. The doll sol for $263,000.00 beating the previous record for a similar model sold in 2003 for $215,000.00. The doll by Albert Marque, dressed in its period clothing to honor the Ballets Russes of Paris, was first introduced to international acclaim in 1909.
Theriault’s President, Stuart Holbrook, said, “While the perception may be that antiques would be subject to a stronger pricing scrutiny in uncertain economic times, these times, in fact, actually have an opposite effect of inspiring people to appreciate quality even more.”

I love to watch this movie when it is cold and raining! The book is dark it gives new meaning to the phrase “still waters run deep”.
Heathcliff has a love for Kathy so intense it is obviously painful. If you are going to watch Wuthering Heights this is the one to watch with Juliette Binoche.
She is wonderful in this movie! Don’t read any of those lame reviews that tell you otherwise. I just read one that said it was not a love story but a movie of revenge. The movie is complicated as is the book! I think he has such a love for her that one cannot put words to describe it. Far from perfect his fits of jealousy are unattractive at the least. Still there is something romantic about the fact he can have no one but her. Some how they are joined as if almost the same person, and when she dies he also dies.
So when the weather is ugly foggy and raining get yourself a nice cup of steaming
a wool blanket and some Chocolat! Curl up !
