A day like no other

Galvanized fishing bucket and load of fresh flowers
A small composition with these few items bought this weekend to celebrate a special day like no other !

I would like to share this birthday by offering a few acidulous photos !

A galvanized fishing bucket welcomes the opportunity to hold a load of fresh flowers. Two small hearts of zinc wire found at “P'Home d'Amour” find a home on its handle.

Those lime green flowers look even more vivid with the gray and beige background. So very pretty.

@ Irène : Ce qui est merveilleux, c'est de vous lire aussi.

Lovely! The old battered tin with the delicate wire hearts, paired with the elegant frame - perfect! One simply wouldn't think they would work together but they do!

Bonjour Laeriss,
Never knew you had another blog translated in English. I was born in France by french parents who moved to the US speaking barely any English when I was 5. Of course I still think of myself as completely french and fancy myself moving back someday with my very American husband who's never been out of the country. Well thank you so much for bringing me back there if only for a moment.
