J'Adore Toile de Jouy

Such a busy week - i havn't had a chance to get online much...

My friend Melissa was in New York last month and stayed in a hotel room that was covered in Toile - she said she felt like she was in a gift box and that the room reminded her of me...i do love Toile but must admit I only like it in small doses...here are a few nice samples

  2. ah, that housework it's never ending - you can only put it off for so long. Dinner and drinks sounds like a nice concilation though.

  3. Those flea market chairs are lovely. I dont think I could pull off a whole dress in toile, well maybe if looked even a smidge like Dita I could, but seeing as I dont I better stick to toile in small doses.
