 These flowers are called Misty Blue ( light purple) and Stock (dark purple)…

What a weird name for such beautiful flower huh?

  4. Hi,, I stumbled upon your beautiful blog and fell in love with your "French Sink"... where did you find such a great piece? You took such nice photos of it along with the 'blue flowers'....
    Wish I could see the 'wallpaper' in person!

  14. HI LuLu,
    I absolutely love your vintage sink! I have wanted one for years, but I have never found one with just the right color or chippiness! Your's is lovely.
    Congratulations on your job with Rachel Ashwell. I worked for her Newport Beach store a few years back and I loved it. It was always such a glorious place to work. I worked part-time and was always off everytime she came in, so I never got to meet her. I wished I could have.
    Beautiful post!
    Have a great weekend.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda

    Anne
