April sailed by like a kite for me this year. Springtime is always full of special events, and the May calender is filled in even more already. Phew! Good thing I always have a way to slow down and smell the roses. Or . . . , make that lavender.
It's time again to show a few shots of the little French shop Je L'Adore that I am proud to be part of. It's always a breath of fresh air. If you can't have April in Paris, this is a good little substitute. And yes, we have lavender products in shop. One of our lines is from our own local lavender farm.
Our shop owner, Tammy, the vignette queen, has put together these delightful garden displays. The little enamel pots and the tall pitcher are straight from France.
I am partial to the soft cottage colors shown here.
And of course I love all things chippy!
Here are a few more lovely samples from a local artist Mikel Robinson that I mentioned in an earlier post here. He uses his own photography with vintage elements for framing. Aren't the angel portraits wonderful?
We represent another talented painter, Anne Sandry, from France, whose work you can see in the background above. Read more about her here. Of course you can always come to Albuquerque and see more of her popular miniature paintings in shop!
So many French delights are tucked in here and there, such as this marvellous little china inkwell.
I love this gorgeous etched tray/basket.
A lovely bedroom vignette. . .
And heavenly vintage garments from France.
French style furniture in all the right colors.
And a new line of fragrant Voluspa candles!
But my current favorite is this antique cupboard packed full of delicate brown transferware, and styled in Tammy's inimitable fashion.
C'est fantastique, non?
Shop location and hours are listed on my profile page here. You'll want to stop by for a visit if you're ever in town.
I hope you're taking time to smell the lavender too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
