Two Girls in Avignon

Happy Monday! Bonjour!

On this gorgeous day, when the weather is supposed to hit 90 degrees, I am dreaming of perusing a Parisian flea market...wandering the aisles, with an iced coffee in hand.

Speaking of vintage Parisian finds...(did you like that segway?)

I came across this charming company the other day when I was sourcing the pillows I adored on Jill  Brinson's couch:
Started by two girlfriends, Two Girls in Avignon is dedicated to preserving and providing French linens.

"As is the case with all things antique, French linens are becoming more and more rare. We search country fairs in the south of France, tiny boutiques in Paris, even attics in ancient hilltop villages like Avignon. Montpellier. Aix-en-Provence. 

We find fewer fabrics every visit. To preserve them, we have begun pairing exquisite floral, antique ribbons, millinery flowers and hand-tied fringe with vintage French linen sheets to create one-of-a-kind towels and pillows. And anything else we may think of, so nothing goes to waste.

Hand wash gently, but please use them. We wish them to live on forever."
Here are my favorite pieces:
Paisley Pillow
French Linen Architectural Panel-Loius XIV
Flax Linen Towel with Ribbon Band
Avoir un bon jour!
