Hotel de Vauluisant - Bleu in France



The Hotel de Vauluisant, built in 1564, caught my eye with its lovely blue details. Today it serves as a hosiery museum featuring stockings worn my the kings of France. ( Non, I did not visit). It also houses a museum of the history of the province. Worth a look if you get the chance to visit Troyes, France.

I love what I think is blue sky reflected in the windows of the blue-detail pics. Lovely!

Virginia said...

Merci beaucoup mes amies! You're the best!!!!
I wish you could see and hear the SMILEBOX card I just got from daughter and the kids that went to France avec moi!!! It's sooooo French and the music is French as well. Ooh la la!

DW, yes the blue sky reflection is why I chose that particular shot of the stairway!
