wild violets ~


happy may day everyone! i love these wild violets that pop up in my yard. i know they are a weed, and they seem to have spread, but they are so sweet and cheery. these and the forsythia are the only thing blooming right now, so my choices are limited for cutting. i'm not a big yellow fan, and every year i say i'm going to chop down the forsythia bushes ~ they get so scraggly. a gorgeous pink cherry blossom would be nice in it's place, but i guess i don't have the heart to do it...






ta da! here are my glitter & grunge offerings ~

a spring nest ~ "primrose"



jardin du rose ~ french basket


this one is exclusive to G & G
spring fete ~ french basket



and last but not least ~
rose garden mirror made from vintage
capodimonte roses and leaves, and velvet millinery leaves ~
very pretty!



all are listed in my etsy shop and lots of new goodies too!
new crepe ruffles in pearl grey, ivory, chocolate, and french vanilla ~
don't they sound delicious!
hope you'll stop over and take a peek.



p.s. sadie lou the admin for the cottage style street team blog featured my etsy shop, birds of a feather today!
thanks sadie lou, very sweet of you!

Stunning! Not the least bit of grunge, of course!

The mirror is gorgeous - I have a whole box of broken china roses calling my name, lol!
