About a week ago, I was doing a bit of thrifting with my mom. It truly is one of our favorite pastimes. However, we usually show up 15 minutes before closing time and it kinda drives the cashier crazy. Just as we were checking out, I came across this beautiful broach. I fell in love with the painting of this man (I call him Jacque) walking in Paris over the Seine. I thought it was so cool how Jacque was elevated off the piece, creating a three dimensional affect. 

From the back, Jacque seems to be pretty dapper with his bowler hat and all. I'd like to imagine that he was en route to meet a lady friend for an evening stroll, but that is just the romantic in me. Where do you think Jacque was headed?
