Good morning! It’s a new week! Yay! Having my usual dual “Fresh start!” feeling with the “Ohmyword, I have so much to Do!” feeling.

But enough of the week – Check. out. this. book!! From Ports of Entry’s description,

“French swatch book from a fabric mill in France that made printed and shirting fabrics for Lanvin, Givenchy, Balmain, Molyneux, and Carven. c.60-70s. Over 100+ pages of swatches” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I want this so bad. It looks totally amazing. I’d get back to learning French just so I could read the little side notes!

You can buy it here at Port of Entry’s Etsy shop. Or you could spot me $900. You’re choice. ;)

p.s. So, questions.  Did they have this swatch book with the little boxes printed for them? Were you able to buy swatch books? Can you now?  And don’t the swatches seem a little small?  I’m going to have to study up.  And now I think I need to make my own swatch book….
