I marvel at the color & beauty of the paintings for the book of hours.
My favorite is the middle straw hat! but my REAL favorite is the "habits" the nuns wore!Were those nuns? They looked like "nuns" habits! Instead of black and ivory.....they were blue and ivory....I think the most elegant clothes I have seen in my life......have been nun's habits......Love the post.....and love the beauty! Bravo!!
ps the size of the cathedral in the background made me think they were nuns.....Maybe you know more! In any case...I love their type of "uniform"Beautiful and simple.thank you again for a magnificent post!
What a beautiful, beautiful Painting!Thank you so much for showing it!Best wishes for a lovely weekend andGreetings from the Périgord,karin
Just yesterday afternoon I was enchanted to drive by a field near Darlington House where the farmers were haying. It was a lovely sight, indeed.
Simply astounding and oh so intricate! Wonderful Gaye! The cathedral is stunning.xoxoKarenaArt by Karena
I have always loved this book of hours--but never thought much about the straw hats. Thanks for the new perspective. Have a great week. Mary
