"My eyes adore you".

Our shop is certainly an eclectic mix of styles.  Victorian isn't one of them.  I like rustic, mid-c. Italian, 18th c. french and english anything and most old garden ornaments.

So, I'm still wondering what came over my brain when I saw this at the Antique Market.

Everything disappeared except this beauty as my eyes lasered onto it.  I've never seen anything like it.  I could see it filled with flowers.  It's mouth is wide, the bowl is deep.  It has a foot.  It has everything, including gold (my favorite embellishment) and flowers below the neck.

I couldn't wait to deliver the wedding this morning to Oleana, so I could unwrap it and fill it.

I'm leaving it in the curtainless (curtains being washed) window this weekend.

Oh, and here's Emily's bouquet, held by Lizzie wearing a shirt that matches the peonies!

There are 20 bags of compost in my Element.  Hope the weekend dries up a bit.

You have a good eye (as I can personally attest being the happy recipient of the Majolica compote).

And a dab hand with flowers.

Hope the rain goes away.

A gorgeous bowl. Hope to see it often.

That is a really beautiful bowl, made more so by the absolutley perfect arrangement you filled it with. Sun's finally peeking through here but cold. Wacky.

It's beautiful! Steve put it well when he said it fits your romantic arrangements.

I have that happen sometimes--fall in love with something that isn't my usual style. Then I think maybe it's time to shake up my usual--or at least open my mind to it.

When one sees the perfect item, grab it! I think most of us have eclectic collections :)
