Summer Vignette 2

In a previous post, we agreed that vignetting should be a word.  In this post, I’m sharing a “bignette”, not one of those delicious things you eat in New Orleans – A vignette inspired by the letter “b” (birds, books, blooms, and blues).  A spotted blue glass bird sits in front of a flower pot with blue blooms.

Hello Laurie
I love your 'bignette'.
Gorgeous blues - the cloche and birdies are sweet.

Hi Laurie,
Beautiful B's my friend. I love everything you've pulled together for the buffet behind your sofa. What a cozy spot.
You are always an inspiration with your vignettes and now your bignette!
