Ooo, thanks for sharing this artist. I have a set of mildly erotic Peynet playing cards that my grandparents brought back from France many years ago, and I never realized they were from a recognized artist, I just knew they were awesome!

I've never heard of this artist and now I have someone I too want to discover while thrifting. Beautiful find!

That's a darling vase -- what a wonderful find! I love Peynet -- I have thought of trying to embroider some of his illustrations.

I'm glad you are back from your vacation! Even though I don't know you personally. I love your blog!

Amazing! You're so lucky! I search regularly for a Peynet scarf and fail miserably! Anyway, love your blog which I read regularly and keep up the great work!
