vendredi fleurs


Yesterday was a cold and wet day here and the forecast is for more days like this to come. I was not too worried as I was snug in my wee shop playing Edith Piaf and burning lovely fragrant Christmas candles which I have almost run out of already and am not sure whether to get more. I even had a Christmas fruit mince pie with my mid-morning cup of coffee - very yummy.


A customer came into the shop who is a retired florist from London and it got me thinking, yes I know thinking is dangerous.

I would love to have a shop with antiques/homeware on one side and flowers on the other so all I need to do is find some premises and convince my customer that she needs to work and not retire......


je vous souhaite à tous un fabuleux vendredi,

  2. lovely warm photo ~ and how lovely to spend a morning, sipping coffee with a fruit mince tart.
    Yes thinking can be dangerous, but then again some-times out of our thinking come the inspirations to start some-thing new, some-thing different. Flowers & antiques marry so... well together.

    Sounds like a wonderful shop that I would visit, flowers on one side and antiques/ homeware on the other.
