Pretty funny title for a PG rated blog don't you think? I wanted your attention. Kind of like screaming, "Wolf!" Because I need your help, I am not in trouble or anything serious like that. You see, I bought a bunch of 1900s French charcoal drawings several weeks ago at the brocante, though I only want to use one of them for the bathroom in Paris.
I narrowed it down to two of them. The two charcoal drawings are similar, both are signed and dated 1887. Maybe that is why I cannot make up my mind, I like them both.
The other charcoal drawings are either far more in your face, if you know what I mean. Not bad. Just more prominent, aggressive, attention grabbers. Or they are of women and I already have women in the bathroom at home, so I thought I would add men this time. The others are simply not my first choice.
Sacha's girlfriend (Yes, he has a girlfriend and she is lovely! That is all I can say about that subject on my blog.) Came by the apartment and she made a statement that made me laugh at myself, Observantly she said, "The apartment looks just like your home back in Provence: Paris map on the wall, ironstone, linen curtains, black table with beige chairs, nudes..." Sacha added, "Mirrors you cannot see yourself, old chic stuff..."
I thought the Paris apartment looked different then our home, darker, different colors, but after she mentioned that it looked the same, I had to agree it does! Except there will be nude men in the bathroom, not just women.
The marble side table, next to the holy water font re-purposed into a bathroom sink, I bought this summer at a brocante for 50 Euros. Since the bathroom sink doesn't have a counter, a side table was needed to put our toothbrush amongst other things. There is a toiletry cabinet next to the sink... photos will come later.
Which nude men should I use? Wait a minute that is not what I mean!
Which charcoal drawing should I use for the bathroom?
Please let me know, in the comment section, which one you prefer.
(They are in not matted or framed properly, as I haven't decided which one.)
Doesn't Number 1 or Number 2 sound like bathroom talk?
My Brother Mat will probably say, "Flush them," or something of that nature. I am ready for the jokes.
P.S. Sorry for the number confusion, I have corrected my error.
