I have a confession to make: I was, in all honesty, not intending to hoard any more pieces but really, I love a good festoon myself and the colours in this piece are right up my alley. Just look at that purple! I can't think of a word to properly describe that shade of lilac purple. And that gorgeous vintage rose cameo in a gilt frame? You don't see the likes of that often.
So yes, I am going to break the rule once more and let it stay with me just that bit longer. It looks so pretty on my desktop linen mannequin and when I get bored, I simply look up at it and give a little satisfied sigh. Beautiful things need to be admired and I need a muse :)
