Welcome to my blog // art project about the mix of things and places that make me smile.  I hope you have a nice stay!

Collage: Lilac Fleurs


I'm enjoying the early signs of Spring - more hours of sunshine, budding blossoms, scented jasmine etc... And smiling that this will be a season of 'prints' and 'florals' in fashion.  Although, one could say they are always in fashion - but this season they are everywhere! A stroll by any apparel destination and you have a plethora of choices - floral denim, floral silk dresses even floral socks!  A full celebration of the flower.  

Since I'm fairly print shy I'll opt for a diaphanous floral scarf of some sort, but I could be persuaded otherwise if I came across something close to the gorgeous Nina Ricci ensemble in the collage.  It reminds me of colorful little happy lovely lilac petals, and who wouldn't feel beautiful wearing that? ♡
