Tiny french gift shop in San Francisco…
graced by it’s lovely dark haired owner
(french bangs…think Leslie Caron)…

Inspired by an 18th century book that chronicled

conveyed some secret message …

One of the most mundane household objects, the sewing needle,
is elevated by these fanciful domestic scenes…
