Hustle and Bustle

Wallpaper Bustle Fingers 2

This is so the pattern of a be-bustle’d silk gown worn by someone in the court of Marie Antoinette (the ultimate ninnyhead, but dear lord, did she have exquisite taste in bespoke fabrics.)  It’s also possibly the fourth layer of wallpaper I uncovered in the upstairs hall of my family’s 100-year-old farmhouse when my mom and I stripped the walls when I was seven.  I like the bustle thing better.
