Who’s happy April has arrived!
Many things have been going on at Cloches and Lavender.
I have been working on some painting projects. A project I started for our bedroom is taking longer than I anticipated. I’m sure that happens to us all.
The piece I designed will be over my dresser. My first painting attempt didn’t please me. I added gilding wax and wasn’t pleased with color of the or the colors of chalk paint I chose.
A little tease of a piece I already finished and repainted.
Wanting this to be a statement piece it also needed to be made larger. Not wanting to start from square one my trustee handyman hubby John, came up with a solution to make it larger.
I will show the finished piece soon. Waiting for appliques to arrive. All the base work is finished. I will do a wash of paint, waxing and a bit of gilding and it should be complete. Stay tuned.
With it sort of feeling like spring here and there I have been putting spring touches around the house.
Limelights dried in the fall. Aren’t they beautiful?
This year I am planning to dry as many as possible.
We will be planting Violas on the porch and I will put together a basket for the front door, I will share soon. I look forward to Violas, they are petite and add much needed color for early spring.
A small vignette I put together using a small cast iron French urn with antique French books and vintage pots I have had for years. Aren’t these carnations a beautiful color?
Hope you are getting ready for spring where you live too!
