Spontaneous Pleasures





A special treat for me recently was this beautifully perfumed soap from Fragonard. We came across the shop while strolling along the Boulevard Saint-Germain in Paris. A small treat but one that will continue to delight for many months to come. Rose, vanilla, freesia, honeysuckle, lavender, orange blossom and apricot scented with clementine are the fragarances of the moment. I am thrilled and delighted with my spontaneous purchase!




I hope your weekend is filled with spontaneous pleasures!
Best wishes 
Jeanne :)

  1. Those sculpted soaps are beautiful! I had found some at a store not too far from here, and they smelled so good that I got another, and left it in my drawer to scent everything lightly. It was so pretty and fresh and clean. I used to hang flowers as in the top photo as well ... I haven't done it in some time, but there is a hook in the kitchen that is just asking for some flowers now! Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Thanks for your comments! I am loving the soap, what a great way to start the day. The nice thing about turning 50 was deciding that nothing would be saved for the 'special occasion' box...it was one of my gifts to me and it makes each day that much more special!
