Most summers in Cadrieu, I found a way to sprinkle pansies around the Chatette. They were one of Mom's favorite flowers, so I'd often press one and stick it in a letter to her.
I wanted something pretty and interesting to present them in one year, so when Jean and I went to the market in Limogne one Sunday-voila...I discoverd these interesting pitchers and small crystal-like ice buckets.
Not only were they whimsical, beautiful and reasonable; they were great conversation starters.
Pansies always make me smile!
Here's wishing you a pansy smiling kind of Monday!
