Ah ah, Oh my stars and garters! Just discovered these thanks to American Duchess, who discovered them from la Chatelaine Chocolat – who got it from a friend on Facebook – whose addy I do not have ….. but you get the idea of how the finding spreads :D

A real treat for me and I hope for all of you too.

Here are a few still from the film to whet your appetite
