A Chair Full of Pansies















This chair full of pretty blue and yellow pansies greets visitors at sister Mary Beth's home.....What a welcoming sight when you walk up the steps to her front door!
I hope the week ahead is a good one for all!
Be well, Laura

Those look wonderful! I rescued a child's woven chair from beside some bins last summer and have been aiming for a simiar effect, but not so successfully. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Laura,
I saw your comment over at "A Heart in Provence," in which you asked if anyone knew where to get Linden Perfume. I thought you might see my information sooner if I left it here also:

Laura,

A French company, Côté Bastide, www.cotebastide.com offers a line of fragrances called "Tilleul." Perhaps you can locate a stateside store that sells Côté Bastide. "Tilleul" is the French word for "Linden" and not "Lime tree" as some translators believe (even on their website translation, Côté Bastide uses the translation "Lime Tree.") I recently bought Côté Bastide Tilleul bath gel at Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, Texas, USA, where I was doing a shoot for my blog. The gel is heavenly and reminds me of the fragrance of Honeysuckle.

Good luck is finding your Linden scent.

Annie

I adore this chair with pansies! We sold a willow chair by the thousands to a big box store up here in canada and it sold incredibly well! Yours looks FAB :)
