Out of town!

I'll be taking a short trip until Sunday, hence no posting until then.

To not leave you all alone and unoccupied I cordially invite you to tell me what Ignacy Krasicki, archbishop of Gniezno and Primate of Poland from 1795 to 1801 is wearing here: Did he skin grandma's sofa because he liked the floral pattern better than the plain silk used for cassock and mozzetta? Or was there a time when something like that was comme il faut?

See you again on Monday,

ok, I can't resist... send it to G and wait for W to get one of those. Quite an incredible pic, btw.

I think W is happy with the watered silk.
