{at home: fresh flowers + golden light}

. . . always lovely to have a saturday afternoon to spend at the market, and recently did just that: he, picking up ingredients for a new paella recipe, and i, happening upon the most charming bouquets of ranunculus and roses in stunning shades of sunset and cerise and -- once home -- utterly enchanted by each perfect petal caught in the golden rays of late afternoon light . . .

Just beautiful...

You should do more of your photos ..... and especially of flowers :-)

I love how you buy not just one bunch but ( at least) 3:-)

And I have to laugh, do tell, has the the gold leafing project overflowed to the furniture??

If it has - it looks superb :-)

Hugs, bright sunshine and the wishes for the joy that spring brings, to you and P

Rhiannon Nicole – thank you!

Betta Gaeta – Happy Spring to you as well

Keri – such a lovely comment – thanks so much!

Felicity – actually have quite a few own photographs of flowers, but never posted them :) [] and yes, could not decided on the colours and there were so many pretty bunches, ended up with five – would have had one more, but ended up passing up a beautiful bouquet of white roses to an elderly lady [] so happy you noticed the gold leaf! and even more so that you like it -- thought you might notice and actually had decided to practice on the coffee table first, and was such a huge project, that haven’t managed to try anything else, although may consider a carved wood mirror that’s too lovely to store away . . . [] wonderful spring wishes and smiles to you, dy and the cherubs ♥

hello everyone! hope your week is wonderful so far and that you’re having a beautiful spring {or autumn to the lovely readers in the southern hemisphere} – very much looking forward to more afternoons of golden sun and of course, many more spring bouquets . . .
hope you’re well,
