antique French linen

On the ironing board…Bella Notte (what else!) and an antique French “drap” from Karin.

I had my eye on this beauty since last May, and finally just put myself out of my

misery and bought it. The embroidery is huge…6.5″ X 11″  and the color…a slightly

toasted neutral. Divine…and heavy. More about “Karin from Périgord” on previous post.

Love starting the New Year strong…and busy…

And shaking up old routines a bit…

Back soon…
