from yesterday's post- why don't you?, I received this comment- from the ever tuned in, turned on the HOUSE OF BEAUTY & CULTURE-
"all that is missing is Truman Capote circa 1977."

TRUMAN sprawling 1977
Yes, Truman did have a thing for Victoriana- the furniture that is-
So what about a Truman Victoriana Redux?
well-not to disturb any literary spirits-
& in that spirit-
Prints, Pattern-that Truman would approve of-all from QUADRILLE.
He decorated with damasks, Japanese obi textiles, quilts, florals, batiks- So yeah, He went for it all
Here- Truman -as a younger Victorian.

so tell me what you think?
why don't you?
& DO wish TRU a Happy Birthday- born September 30th 1924.
Now playing for HOBAC- did you hear this in '77?
