At one time, I just loved the French word "quincaillerie". I didn't know what it meant but it had a nice sound and look. Rediculous or not, oh well! When I went to France a few years ago, I saw this in a town in Provence, the only time I saw it during my visit. I don't know if it's a very common word. Maybe it's a sign that I should do a painting of this place!
