French Violets


The violets have been holding their place in the garden.


I can never resist picking a few to bring indoors.


On top of a vintage altered book is the perfect place to display them.


Painted in cottage white and adorned with a French decoupage.

I love these pictures of your violets. The book you altered looks so French vintage. They are perfect together. The pictures of your flowers has inspired me to take more of mine from my garden. Check out my blog for pics of our dogwood tree. Pretty time of year..
