The hydrangeas are blooming, the hydrangeas are blooming!!! Yay!
Now, what to do with these beauties? They look so pretty in the front landscape, but I love to cut a few and use them in different places.
Do you know what a lavabo is?
Lavabo: salle de bains or sink, washbowl
Homegrown hydrangeas and an antique French cast iron and enamel lavabo =
What more can I say?
One of my favorite French finds, it is mounted on our outdoor loggia. A lavabo is a wall sink used indoors or out, with a water reservoir and basin. This is an especially lovely cast iron example with the original blue-gray enamel over porcelain decorative insert. The top lifts off so you can fill it with water and there’s a small spigot at the bottom..
I purchased this awesome French chippy white iron lavabo last year at European Antique Market. I’m selling this one.
Ahh, dreaming of the French countryside. Here’s to a wonderfully Frenchy Friday with French garden antiques.
