Last week, in the midst of being very busy getting our photographs ready for selling our house, I went to a new shop with a friend of mine. She discovered it recently and came to take me to see it. She was so right! It was amazing and I wish I had taken my camera. When you go inside the building, it is like you went outside into a quaint Dutch street. I promise I will get photos on my next visit. And yes, there will be a next visit. *grins*
I bought this beautiful large stone pot which was marked down 50%. I love it sitting by my woodstove. It has a pretty crackle finish with red and rusty hues.
Ranunculus look perfect in it! I love these spring beauties. And don't you just love the folk name for them...Persian buttercups? Recently we potted up our window boxes for spring with some colorful blooms. I had a few over and planted them up in a tall planter to sit by the front door.
Since I love The Language of Flowers, I decided to look up what the meaning of ranunculus were. Their message is 'you are radiant charm or you are attractive'. I had to smile at this with them being in boxes behind the house, at the front door and by the hearth. With our house officially up for sale today, I hope someone receives that message and falls in love with the house.
