French Botanicals From 1929

You may have noticed this beautiful arrangement of framed French botanicals
 in a few photographs that have appeared here before.
 They belong to my girlfriend Paula
 and hang on her family room wall.

I remember when Paula first laid eyes on these beauties.
It was years ago and at the time we shared a small booth
 in an antique mall in Essex.

These gorgeous French botanicals dated 1929
 were in an elegant booth of another dealer in the mall.

Paula loves the sepia tones of these beautiful pieces of art.

 I adore the lovely old French script.

She tried to resist...

...but was no match for the charm and beauty
 of these fabulous works of art.


Paula fell deeply in love...
...and brought them home.

They truly bring the outside in... they are displayed here on the wall of her cottage.

 Happy with her investment in these works of art....
...they have graced the walls here for the last six or eight years.

The time has come though...and
Paula has reluctantly decided that she must let them go.

This set of nine framed French botanicals is being offered for $1,800.
If you are interested in learning more about these pieces please
 contact Paula directly at

SOLD !!!

Helping my bff by getting the word out 
that she is parting with some of her treasures...
Hoping to put her in touch with a few of my blog friends
 who may be in a position to purchase these works of art
 and who may love them as much as we do!

What do you think?
Aren't they gorgeous?

Hope you have a great weekend.
Have you any interesting plans
 or is everybody still cleaning and organizing?


The Feathered Nest said..., they are BREATHTAKING!!!! And SO up my alley!!!! Wish I had the extra money ~ they would be mine! I have 22 small botanicals very similar to these, I have them stored away but need to frame them just like these are. You are an angel for helping her ~ hugs and love, Dawn

Big plans? I have not started taking down the Christmas decor inside...just outside. I have been real busy painting for the shop, so that will be done next week. Since we celebrate Mardi Gras maybe I should make my trees Mardi Gras trees:) These are beautiful pieces and I hope Paula can find a buyer.

Di@Cottage-Wishes said...

They are so divine, I so wish I could do that price, they are so worth it, but alas. I hope someone will love them as much as she did. She has such great taste. You are a very good friend. I helped my best friend in selling her items and used EBay. Hugs, Di
