Tiny White Bells in a Vintage French Baguette Basket

The sunshine seems to be leaving us for a few days...

Here are a few reminders of the recent lovely spring weather
that we have been enjoying.

Our Lily of the Valley pictured here with a vintage
 French basket and green French canning jar.

My weekend flea plans may be a wash out.
Oh well, there is always next weekend!

Regardless of the weather...
...hope your weekend is full of fun!

I hope it's not a wash out for your sake.
I wish I could make it next Sunday, but I'll be in Saratoga. I'm loving the lily of the valley photo. Have a great weekend!

In love with the basket, and want one! It's lovely and I actually use that kind of bread all the time( even though carbs are supposedly bad).
Beautiful post Laura. xxx tami

Aa always, your photographs are amazing, you have such a way with arrangement. Thanks for bringing back memories of my childhood. My Mom had one entire flowerbed devoted to Lily of the Valley flowers.
Happy week-end,

One Woman's Thoughts said...

Oh I so delighted in your lily of the valley photos! One of my favorite flowers.

A rainy day can sometimes be good for us to take out attentions elsewhere and nurture ourselves in a new way.

I look forward to more of you as you have sunny days to flea market.

Have a pretty day!

Hi Laura - the lily of the valley photos are so lovely - that has always been one of my favorites! One side of our house has a garden that is full of those beautiful little blooms. It is a sure sign of spring when they raise their pretty little heads!


ps - we have had so much rain already - and storms! Ugh~~

LaPouyette said...

A beautiful and highly artistic arrangement!
Just simply good!

Have a lovely May-Weekend Laura,
Greetings - Karin

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh Laura,
I LOVE Lily of the Valley. ......I think that was one of the reason's that I went to Westminster Abbey to see the flowers. Lily of the Valley was the star of the show.
Your's looks beautiful and, you have such a good eye to put that pretty green and white spotted ribbon with them.
Hope that your weekend is proving to be dry and that you put all of your plans in action. XXXX

Carole said...

I heard from Paula about the big weekend. I know it will be a great success....maybe so much that you won't have to do ET.

Love the pics of the girls together.
