viennese delights

There is a wonderful little show at The Textile Museum, "Textiles of Klimt's Vienna," featuring over 50 fabrics designed by Viennese artists and designers, such as Josef Hoffmann, Dagobert Peche, and Maria Likarz-Strauss. It is open through 6 January 2008, so if you are in Washington, don't miss it. I love the freshness of all of these patterns!
