A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

March l'heure bleue

Beautiful blogs written by even more beautiful souls 
provide bountiful inspiration every day! 

March l'heure bleue 
was inspired by 
and her collage of Etsy items to romance her cottage. 

From Lin's inspiration, I created a new PINTEREST board to celebrate 

Bon Anniversaire en Bleu

(Happy Birthday in Blue)

Go to my Pinterest board in order to enjoy larger photos 
and to go to the sites for more inspiration.  

  1.  No birthday celebration is complete without a scrumptious looking and tasting birthday cake
  2.  Flowers, blue Love-in-a-Mist (nigella) and white foxglove, begin the birthday with a message of love and beauty. 
  3.  More blue and white flowers complement the plates for serving the cake. 
  4.  Cake calls for candles, but these will be enjoyed on the table instead of on the cake. 
  5.  Blue and white wallpaper serve as gift wrap for a much-coveted birthday present. 
  6.  French blue stoneware bowls are the perfect birthday present
  7.  Beautiful vintage cards, letters, and prints arrive in the mail filled with wishes for a "Happy Birthday." 
  8.  A handmade wooden letter rack displays birthday wishes as they arrive and for many days to follow, stretching the birthDAY into a birthWEEK.  
  9.  Boarding a midnight blue train for a birthday trip, the birthday girl is ready for new adventures. Never too old for exploring beautiful locations in style. 
  10.  As the train speeds through the night, blue and white lace-trimmed pillow covers offer a peaceful rest, bringing the birthday to a close, but promising the best is yet to come.
