I thought you might like to see more of the lilac setting shots. Some of the photo's were not used. The lilacs have since faded and won't return until next spring. We had the privilege of enjoying their charming beauty for an extended time since we're having the perfect record breaking spring.
In years past I've taken pictures of all the different flowers that bloom throughout our garden in the spring and summer. Since I have to wait so long to see them blooming, it seems only natural to want to hold on to the short lived joyful memory they bring to my world.
I'd really like to create a journal of sorts that showcases some of my favorite blooms. Sketches too along with the photo's.
I love flowers! You may remember how I once said if I had not chosen to be a soap maker I would own a flower shop. In fact, I've pondered thoughts of opening another boutique filled with antiquities, French inspired toiletry items and FRESH FLOWERS!
I can envision old white washed apothecary cabinets in ecru, lavender bundles sitting in vintage baskets, piles of beautiful savon assorted and neatly stacked and tied with beautiful satin and silk ribbon, trunk shelves layered with vintage linens, napkins and a rare array of French ribbon and napkins, stunning fresh bouquets centering the round tables throughout. Can you see it?
I've even thought about a name, Floraison aigre-douce, Bittersweet Blooming!
I'm happy and content at the moment running my cottage business from home but it's nice to have creative thoughts to tuck away and reserve for a later date!
First things first... I have some other projects up my sleeve that take protocol.
I know, I know, teasing is not nice. The big project can't be disclosed quite yet. I promise though when it gets closer to the proper time, I will certainly share.
Counting down to the final weeks before the May Day event!
My list remains long...
I wish you could sniff the new May Day fragrance!
Enjoy caring and sharing spring days.
