oooh! A humorous take on toile is much appreciated! I love it, I really do.

Years ago, I used to take ballet in the basement of a very large, very old, historic home. The bathroom was papered in a fantastic paper- decrepit with age and gilded gold in the background, foreground filled with ladies in bustles and gowns. Anyway, the students of the school had taken to writing conversation bubbles on top of the ladies, as if they were speaking to one another. You can only imagine what they were saying...

This reminds me of that paper, graffiti element and all. Since, the paper was torn down, and I regret being too young at the time to appreciate it fully and photograph it.

PS So glad I found your blog today. It is lovely.
