To go with this little token of Spring, I've brought out the hand-painted cups I picked up in Edinburgh a while back.
I love 1930s china....
And wouldn't you say Sarah's lovely bird sets it all off so well, even going with our little vintage lamp?
The house feels ready for spring, now. I gather that Candlemas/Imbolc (which was yesterday) marks the exact half-way point between midwinter and the Spring Solstice, and heralds the beginning of looking forward to Easter rather than back to Christmas. Perfect timing for my tulips, then!
Yesterday's galette and crèpe fest for la Chandeleur went very well, by the way. I am getting the hang of the funny spatula but it will be a while before I'm as good as my French friends at spreading a perfect galette! No of course I didn't take any photos - that would have been organised...
