I can't get enough millinery! This time of year, when the garden suffers from summer heat, paper and fabric flowers decorate the house as everlasting bouquets. Above is a group of vintage sprigs from Japan displayed in a footed cloisonne vase. The beach scene in the background is a painting from several Christmases ago; it's my absolute favorite place in town besides home.
Zooming in... made with meticulous attention to detail, these blossoms are nearly as good as the real thing!
They're also displayed in an antique sterling pitcher. I just love the handle featuring Mercury.
Be sure to visit Faded Charm for more pretties in white!
