Day 98 VIolette

Violette, the most zipped up of the girls. She’s elegant and cool and Gatsby before Gatsby was Gatsby.

When I was in highschool I visited Casa Loma in Toronto, Ontario Canada. I was totally taken with it, but especially the solarium. At that moment in my life I put it into my imaginary dream home.  It was the best of a beautiful green house and sitting room. A place surrounded with greenery year round, lush and beautiful, but not overgrown and claustrophobic. The center of the room was open to the sun coming in and the sky and I imagined an easel in the center. Perfect.

Well, Violette inhabits that solarium in my mind.  I hope you enjoy her.
