Vintage French Basket

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
I hope you had a fun and romantic
~Valentines day~
Handsome Husband surprised me with this stunning hydrangea plant
 so beautiful  
 that he put it in this pretty basket
we found this basket at the Irvine flea market we both liked it but decided to keep shopping
 Handsome husband went back and bought it for me
as a surprise

This hydrangea is the prettiest 
 purple blue color
{ from Trader Joes only 6.99}
The hydrangeas in our front yard garden are bare right now 
with tiny  green buds just starting to appear

Every year it is so fun to try and get pink and blue and purple hydrangeas
to bloom in our garden
This hydrangea will be inside for awhile in this pretty basket until the temperature 
outside gets warmer and we can plant it outside with the other hydrangea plants

The basket was a fabulous find
it is large and has the sweetest curves  
and handles

I Decided to give the basket a little
 french vintage charm 
by adding initials 

Turned out great and was super easy to do
I can be dangerous with a sharpie pen......
 Looking at the pictures I think I might thicken the letters a little bit more
What do you think........

 Adding initials is a fun way to add a personal touch
Handsome Husband liked it too
So Grateful

  1. Beautiful basket...maybe a little more with letters would look good.


  2. Very pretty, Pam. I adore hydrangeas.

  3. Pam, your basket and the beautiful hydrangea were definitely a sweet gift. Can't find hydrangeas in that price range here. '-)
    Lucky you that you can grow these in your garden. They don't do well here.

  4. love the monogram on the bakset!!!!!
    happy valentines :) xox

  8. Les hortensias font partis de mes fleurs préférées, dans ma campagnes française ils sont encore loin de bourgeonner. Votre panier est très beau

  9. It is a beautiful basket. Hydrangeas are my favorite. I have an old Nikko Blue and a friend gave me a Oak Leaf last year. I am ready for spring. Blessings, Olive
