Taking it easy as Christmas approaches, the Folly Flâneuse was flicking through a copy of The Home Owner magazine from December 1937. She was delighted to discover one writer’s thoughts on follies at that date. Follies were, he wrote :
‘the natural off-spring of the union of too much money with too little brain…set up ostensibly to improve the view, but really to advertise some wealthy nit-wit’
On that note a very merry Christmas and there will be more nit-wits and their creations in 2019.

May we take this opportunity to wish the flaneuse a jolly splendid festive season. G×N.
How kind 🌲
Not taking it that easy if time of the latest post is anything to go by! but thank you for making me smile – just love the 1930s take on meaning… and the term nit wit, sure we will find many occasions in 2019 to use it.
Wishing you a Folly good Christmas
Thanks G but I must confess that the post automatically appears at 7am. La flâneuse was safely tucked up in bed then!
