MY BAGATELLE  –  I really felt like Marie Antoinette in 1775, when she made a bet with her husband’s brother that he could not build her the Chateau de Bagatelle in the Bois de Boulogne in 64 days.

Honestly, I didn’t know how long it would take to dismantle an entire chateau that was already on pallets in a warehouse — and then put all the chateau stone onto new pallets, ready for shipping. One month… two months ? God only knew.
