Hooray! Just a bit of fun. Last night Remi and I were skulking around an especially unpromising Depot-Vente or junk shop in the suburbs of Arles. Each went their separate ways, only half-heartedly in the hunt. And yet, what did I spy tucked behind a bulky dresser? A bit of tapestry. Yes, I know, tapestry can be so old-fashioned as to be sad. But no, this one is so perfectly faded that its remaining colors only give the tiniest suggestion of what it once was. I called Remi over and with a heave he extracted it from its dusty realm. And as you can see, we swooped it up. For a song. A mere pittance. You wouldn't believe me if I told you.
Especially as when we got it home I spied a label on the back frame: "Panneaux Gobelins".
It is so long, 2.2 meters that I am not sure where we can put it, but trust me, I will find a place. Aren't such gifts from the world encouraging?
Bon Dimanche, everyone!
