Vacation time in my studio sends me down many paths.  I was delighted to find this Christmas card painted by Alexandre Serebriakoff for Charles de Beistegui on the Notebook of David Netto. On the far right, de Beistegui's pyramid folly is depicted under construction. My pyramid folly box is decoupaged with images from an old print found on the front of a Martin Randall Travel catalog. I wasn't certain at first why a bundle of sticks were packed on the camel.  Then it dawned on me, I was looking at blue and white striped tent fabric and tent poles. The tented bed in the last photograph is another folly. I couldn't resist asking Serebriakoff to paint the wall mural and Robert Calasso (author of the book Tiepolo Pink) to funish the flooring.
