Musée de Toile

Do you know what Toile is? It’s a kind of patterned fabric that is used mostly today in decorating. It has a rich history in France. From what I could find out at the museum it was a kind of imitation of fabrics that were imported from India. To make them at home was simpler and cheaper. Spies were even sent to discover the techniques used to create repeating pattern and bright colors. Here’s some examples, I’m sure you’ve seen it before.

When asiatic images are show it falls into a catagory called “Chinoiserie”.

Unfortunately there were no photos allowed inside the Museum. There were carved wooden tools for block printing and copper ones for the highly detailed designs. Most of these parts were melted down after use to move on to the newer items for sale. It was very interesting to learn about. The museum is out of town and about a 15 min walk from the train station. I would recommend it as a day trip.

We took some photos outside in the garden. You’ll see that Marie got dressed up in toile. A skirt from her own fashion collection “Le Boudoire de Marie”. There was a park behind the museum with a grotto! I love grottoes from the romantic period in France.

Domergue Exhibit Paris with Marie

domergue

There’s a Domergue exhibit in Paris at the Musee de Montparnasse. I went to check it out with Marie ( of Le Boudoire de Marie). The paintings are usually found at his villa in Cannes, which I got to visit a few weeks later. I was so impressed by his confident brush strokes! The painting above is just sublime!

We took some photos in the alley in front of the gallery. It’s in one of those romantic Parisian passages. This one is filled with artist’s atliers.

Birthday Hike

For Christmas my husband got me this book. It was my idea and it was a little hard to get started but I knew that on my birthday I could convince him. So we went on a 5 1/2 hour walk! The book lays out 30 walks that encircle Paris and that you can get to and from by train. It was hard towards the end our legs were giving out! I brought along nuts and dried fruit and water which was a good thing because we didn’t come across any businesses until the very end. The area was really beautiful.

Deke Dikerson au Balajo

We went to see our friend Deke a few weeks ago at the fabulous Balajo nightclub. I’ve alsways wanted to go there. I had peeked inside a few times but never organised an occasion to go. It is a little jewel. It seems as if nothing has changed since the 1930’s. The history is pretty cool too, it was owned or is owned now by wrestlers.It was created when dance halls were in their heyday. I can see lots of winks to the apache dance in the decor. You have to see it for yourself to appreciate. I want to move in or else decorate my house like the Balajo!

The Ball Populair is a cool part of past french culture. I love it when ever I come across images in films or the vestiges that rest in Paris.
