Lavender posy

MINI Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting my dear friend Iris who lives in an enchanted German cottage. Everywhere you gaze, you find something of beauty: fossils and coloured stones hidden among the plants, golden paper stars, colourful stitchery, calligraphy and paintings tucked in all corners, stacks of antique books, and one of my new favourites - an antique rocker that until quite recently belonged to a ghost who used to sit on the side of the road and gently rock away the day. Okay, the ghost bit may be a bit of an embellishment, but I swear the rest is true : ) When I left she handed me a lavender posy wrapped in golden cord. 2.5" x 3" / acrylic on canvas / $14 / SOLD
