Vendredi Fleurs...


{photo from here}



I decided to take a break from French Food Friday this week, hence we have vendredi fleurs this week.

How beautiful are these violets? I wish that I had some as they would certainly add a touch of colour to a cold winter's day.

They would also compliment the new paint colour that I started using today. It is grey coloured lilac and really is gorgeous.
I am really taken with it and plan to use it on a few objects including a chandelier complete with matching wall lights and also a lovely day bed.

I promise to share some photos with you just as soon as I have finished painting.

  1. Violets are beautiful! They grew wild around my parents' home in Maine when i was growing up. I've never seen them out here in OR, and i miss them. Can't wait to see your projects when you're finished painting. Lilacs are lovely too. The white and the purple. Bet the color you're using is exquisite..
