Never, ever, wait for the last day to go see a popular exhibition. The lineup at Pointe Calliere Museum in Montreal’s Old Port was exhaustingly discouraging, yet well worth toughing it out- and I’m so glad I did!

It’s too bad we weren’t allowed to take any photos as I would have loved to show you a certain aristocratic lady, Kleita’s collection! What impressed me most were the details in the workmanship.
