With my interest in vintage hand fans I always like finding paintings that show women with their fans. Artist Conrad Kiesel from Germany was originally trained in architecture and then discovered his love of sculpture and painting. These two works of his show women with their fans. Love them. Especially the second painting called After the Ball.
How about that cake I would love it for Easter! I would also love some candy in my basket with the Marie Antoinette wrapping on it. I dont think that was in the gift shop at Versailles last time I was there.
I've always dreamed of having enough lilacs to gather armfuls of them and bring them into the house for scenting the rooms.
We are finally at a point in the garden that I have enough lilacs growing that I can cut some from each one and have them to bring inside! This is so thrilling to me. I adore flowers and the scent of the lilac is one of my favorite. You don't often find perfume that has that subtle scent. I tried to place the lilacs near seating or along paths. After nearly 17 years in this home the garden is maturing enough to really enjoy.
This past winter so hard on it lost several huge climbing New Dawn roses and lots of confederate jasmine over the arbor is dead.So sad.
Well we must look on the bright side--I still have lilacs and peonies coming and iris, pink salvia , lots of roses and clematis to enjoy.
Why can't we all live near beauty like this? Why cant we all have great neighborhood flower shops? I see photos like this or places like this when I travel and I really envy those who live near such beauty. I hope they notice it and don't take it for granted.
We are still not having a normal spring here too cold and many windy days blooming blooms away.
Right now my redbud tree is in full bloom and it blooms for about 2 -3 weeks and I enjoy it every day. I wish I had planted two. I got a PINK redbud tree, bien sur! What else would Pink Girl get?
I'm just a girl from the South with an eye for pink and for pretty homes and gardens. I love to travel and I love France. I have lots of hobbies and love meeting new people. I love art,pastry making, ballet, reading, gardening,dancing and being with friends and with my dogs, cat and pink parakeets.
