I came across French-Treasures today, which deals in antique French textiles, and I must say it – ooh, la la! Here are a few of my favorites:
If I could afford it, I’d fill my home with nothing but antique textiles – I love patina that age brings to fabrics. And, I love wondering where it’s been, who’s used it and how far has it traveled.
I purchased this little piece (about 12×20) this past Spring during the Boston Antiques weekend. I plan on making a cute little pillow from it. I love the detail and depth of this toile (click the pic for a detailed closeup). The dealer thought it was early-mid 1800’s and came from the Alsace region of France. Who knows, but if the ladies and gentlemen in this scene could only talk, they’d probably have stories to tell!Would you like my Favorite Tips for a Well-Decorated Home? Click here!
