French Lilac and the Winner of French Inspired Art

 A Favorite Color
to enhance this metal table and chair set I've had for several years
"French Lilac"

In Satin Rust-Oleum Painters Touch Spray Paint

... And planting flowers to match ...
Delphiniums are a favorite!
I found 5 little fruit bowls in the exact color
at an antique store
~ love those giant strawberries! ~

happy happy happy .... flower induced joy!

I suppose it is just a coincidence
that the tea cup in the following photos are of a similar color...

My 'Violets' tea cup and saucer, a gift from a dear friend
is filled with numbers representing each blog comment,
for a drawing for a print of one of my
paintings shown in my previous
French-themed blog post.

~ a random drawing ~

{is anything more random than a two year old?!?}
The winner is the sweet blogger of comment # 21

Congratulations to Sheri of Red Rose Alley!

Thanks to everyone who came by for a visit during the week of
the French blog party of Castles Crowns and Cottages!

My dear one.....I am so sad that I was not here for the UNVEILING, but you should get my email to explain why I am so late!

RANDOM number picking by a two year old is the BEST way! And sweet Sheri is a doll; she is going to love your art and I am so happy for her!

OK, the lilac, the violet, lavender and rusty white is just so perfect for these days we are all dreaming of. BRAVO my dear; you found lavender bowls and that tea cup..what a beauty. Now what's missing is being together, sitting in the sun, eating those STRAWBERRIES!

Love it all! Anita
