I have spent the day pottering about photographing and listing some of my latest shabby chic finds for sale. But some of the treasures I truffle out are just too divine to let go so quickly, so I live with them for a while before passing them on! I can always make some excuse for some delicious petite morceau to stay here!
This huge folder is one of three that I discovered a few weeks ago. Each folder is large and so heavy I can only lift one at a time! Dating from the early 1900s they are packed with the most wonderful large sepia photograph plates of the interior decorations at the Palais de Versailles. I am not sure if its the outer covers or the inner photographs I am more in love with!!!
And my excuse for keeping them..............................my pension fund......sounds convincing yes?
