Friday French Property P**n- Des tissus antiques

c6d402f59a4efbf88932089930c7e23d3 days late FFPP!….This photo made me smile. Not just the fabulous fabric, door surround and floor, but the big lean on that wall to the left. I have a wall like that in every room of the French house. Some lean out, some lean in. From bohemianwornest.tumblr.com

The curtain is trimmed with an Aubusson tapestry  border, like mine below

    Yes, drooling describes it.
    Second up on the right, ivory fabric with peach/pumpkin print… I want that fabric. Just because. What will I do with it? I haven’t the foggiest notion.

    Gorgeous! That tapestry border is exquisite.
    A friend told me about a great fabric shop (not antique, but…) in Béziers. I hope to go this week.
