We got our piece of furniture this weekend. Transport was tricky, but the cabinet is in its new place. It looks like it will need a bit of restoration work, but just don't look closely for now.
|New piece in place. Now for a few more furnishings....|
The person who was getting rid of things showed us a collection of silk weavings with "Romantic subjects," as he called them. He wanted to find a good home for some of them, and someone who would appreciate their uniqueness. They were made by a Frenchman, now dead, along with his technique. We have a paper in French about them, which we need Maria to translate for us.
|These are small silk pieces with what looks like photo transfers on them, but they are not. The picture is actually woven into the fabric.|
|The back, which is a negative of the picture. Exquisitely made.|
|Now what would you say she is thinking?|
|As the man said, Romantic. He added, "Not my thing." But I like them.|
I have a couple of ideas of what to make with them. What would you do with them?
Blessings on your Sunday.
Soon, a couple of us are off to distant places. Photos will follow, D.v.
