Mademoiselle and Tapestry

Once upon a time your friend duchess used to invite you for a weekend at her lavish residence. In salon you were sipping tea from finest porcelain cups and assembly was playing flutes. Flamboyant tapestries were hanged on wall behind mahogany tea table. On the tapestries were hand woven images of the family so you were updated with their lives whether male members of the family went to war, or the duchess was reading in the garden. When you returned to your modest home, you unpacked your cheap traveling carpetbag, similar to the walls in duchess palace, and you felt tremendously modern.
That morning when you woke up, you went out on the street and you are terribly surprised when you see that stores instead of beans, are also selling bags and shoes. You buy yourself a dress. You come home and you push the button on something that looks like a box. People moving in it awfully scared you. You see a girl that flies with umbrella and carries in her hand that same carpetbag like you used to have.
Glorious duchess’s tapestries come as a memory to your mind. You decide to investigate around. You meet a man and he kindly offers his help. He brings something shiny and puts it on a table and starts typing the word tapestry while you are wondering how that little apple find herself on that. All of the sudden, on that thing appear thousand images of handsome attire and bags. Since the man told you could buy things there if you want, you choose tapestry bag on something called Etsy. And you choose one handsome suitcase for your voyage. Who wants to look like a carpet, kind man states. Mademoiselle thinks that gentleman doesn’t know the fashion, you say coolly while you sit on your chair to rest.

I just clicked over to your blog from a comment you left on mine (thank you for visiting!)- I really like it: the whimsical writing (the poem underneath, did you write it?)and the montages of cool stuff.

Will be back!
