coup de foudre..


It was a case of love at first sight or as the French say coup de foudre. Yesterday morning French boyfriend set off early bound for a local vide grenier. For me it was not possible to accompany him as I had to stay and attend to guests.


You can imagine my surprise not to mention, delight when he walks into the kitchen carrying this very fabulous creature. She is adorable and now has pride of place in my bedroom.




Fabulous and oh so very French. She has the word pavot written below here, this is the flower used to make opium and these bustes were were made at the begining of the 20th century and she is one of a set of "femmes fleurs", style Alphonse Mucha.



Wishing you all a fabulous month/Je vous souhaite a tous un mois fabuleux, Leeann x
