Collections

Sometimes we find ourselves with a collection of things we had no idea we were collecting...hence my collection of Fleur di lys. I love them and over the years I've found myself with quite a collection of "Fleur" items. So many that I decided to start a wall grouping using just a few. I had a blank wall in my home office/studio that was perfect for a wall collage.


I love how it turned out. The grouping comes only a little over halfway down the wall so I plan to find a chest piece to go under it along that same wall. I'm looking for something old, but not worn. Something that could be refinished and antiqued.

As I said before, I have several items that have the Fleur di lys symbol....can you guess how many?? The person with the closest guess will win a prize. Don't forget to leave your email addy.

Wow - this turned out so well - totally gorgeous and exactly my taste !

I'm so glad you decided to do a post about your fleur de lis too - I just love them and really think they are timeless. Your display is just perfect .....now the fun will be to find the perfect chest to go underneath.

I'd love to guess how many you have - but first I'll go count mine and then make a guess LOL

but then again..... you may have you have a few more :)

Cheers,
Bre
