The garden is generous, the rose trees opened this morning, the boxwood explode, to be cut soon. The cornflowers start their second flowering... And colors, for reward, enter in the house...

Today it is 25°... I appreciate the shade under the trees... to show you my last discoveries : The lamp from the Compagnie des Indes is waiting for a new lampshade a soap dish waiting for the Marseille soap... et some laces to wash-tint-transform A simple pleasure to admire the garden and the cherries which will be ready to eat in a few days,while rememoring happy time when we put them two-by-two behind ours ears…
A collection in course, from the French manufacture of Sarreguemines : the pattern is "Capri - Réserve Casino", from the years 1920-1950. I have 8 dinner plates et 6 soup plate, the big soup tureen very useful for winter soups. The beginning of a nice table. I could tint an old tablecloth in indigo blue for a modern contrast ?
A painting of Paris Montmartre... Old laces and antique gold glasses in their purple velvet box, some little things, and still books… A very fine work... May is coming !
