It's funny when you live in a place, the way you can take things for granted. It struck me recently whilst reading your blogs (which are wonderful) that a lot of miniature enthusiasts are extremely fond of and inspired by all things French. I live in Lyon, a mini version of Paris, where we are really spoilt for choice in terms of architecture. I visited the Musée des Tissus (Textile Museum) again recently, mostly to get some inspiration from their fabulous 18th century textile section, and I realised that maybe I should post a few French things from time to time.
I love the courtyard of the museum, which is tucked away in a residential area behind big gates. It is like stepping back in time. Sadly, I couldn't take photos of the inside of the museum, as the fabrics are very fragile and don't need a bunch of visitors to speed up the decay! But I did take this sneaky pic of the staircase, because it seemed so lovely, if a little neglected.
