{at home: fresh flowers + golden light}


. . . always lovely to have a saturday afternoon to spend at the market, and recently did just that: he, picking up ingredients for a new paella recipe, and i, happening upon the most charming bouquets of ranunculus and roses in stunning shades of sunset and cerise and — once home — utterly enchanted by each perfect petal caught in the golden rays of late afternoon light . . .

    Betta Gaeta – Happy Spring to you as well

    Keri – such a lovely comment – thanks so much!

    Felicity – actually have quite a few own photographs of flowers, but never posted them :) [] and yes, could not decided on the colours and there were so many pretty bunches, ended up with five – would have had one more, but ended up passing up a beautiful bouquet of white roses to an elderly lady [] so happy you noticed the gold leaf! and even more so that you like it — thought you might notice and actually had decided to practice on the coffee table first, and was such a huge project, that haven’t managed to try anything else, although may consider a carved wood mirror that’s too lovely to store away . . . [] wonderful spring wishes and smiles to you, dy and the cherubs ♥
