Swanning around the Jardin de Fleurs, floating in a dream of turquoise and seafoam, reading and re-reading the love letter from Paris. “Comment prouver mon amour…. ” sigh!

This piece was made specially for a friend I have not yet met, and she loves turquoise and seafoam.

GIFTED to Kelly

The ephemera: old french door and window, vintage garden sign, Georges Buffon’s swan, botanical flower illustration, snippet from a French love letter written in 1900  (found at a flea market in Paris by Creartfuldodger.)
