My hand me down camera is sensing that she will soon be replaced
and thus the “impressionistic” photos…Still the chaotic bowls of
lipstick pink “Kansas” peonies tumble prettily in the border…
painting a florid chorus of riotous full Spring. Other peonies are
pursed tightly, patiently, waiting their show…
And a glimpse of my newest find….
Made in Paris in 1763, this one weathered many seasons, many roses
and spring gardens…I have resolved lately to temper my temptations
for smaller finds, to make way for more significant ones. And to wait, patiently,
until then. What treasure do you tuck into the corner of your dreams?
What tugs at your heart when you flip through books and magazines, go to
house tours or museums?For some of us its pretty china, lavish silver,
voluminous silks or the heavy hand of hand loomed linen, carved scrolls of
architectural salvage, miniature portraits, antique books, vintage watering
cans and farm tools. Beyond peonies and spring borders and summer
sojourns, what thing do you love and wait for and why?
Happy weekend and happy hunting…
