a piece of French history

Bonjour  from a cooler SW France,

Apologies for being AWOL this week but I have been busy repainting our bedroom/
I just have half the ceiling to go and I am finished...

for me you do not get much more French than toile de jouy and it is rare to find very old pieces of this fabulous fabric.

I have a fragmant  that was found in the grenier of a local chateau and I just wish that it could talk, imagine the tales that it could tell.
It dates C1820 and despite being almost 200 years old it has retained it's lovely colours.

You can find it here on my etsy shop. It is not a huge piece of fabric but it would make a fabulous cushion or look great framed and hung on the wall.

à demain, Leeann x
