Diary of a Door Mat

We briefly interrupt our regularly-scheduled 4 juillet programming to bring you the Short and Happy Life of a Paillasson. This French doormat is typical of most Parisian apartment buildings. Nary a "Welcome" sign or cute daisies and such. Basic Door Mat. Classic. These are from various apartments in my building's stairwell. Made from coco fibers, they do tend to shred and shed.

The first one is brand new. No carbon dating was available for the last one, as no coco fibers remain, but the tenant has lived there for about 60 years. A long and happy life for that paillasson.
