A BOMBONIERA

I was given this pretty bomboniera, or wedding favour, by a newly-married neighbour yesterday. I do not know her well, so I was very pleased to receive it.



My "bah, humbug" approach to convention sometimes shocks poor Rosa. "I shall put it on the kitchen wall" I announced, coming back with my gift. "But people put them in their sitting rooms, in curio cabinets", said Rosa. "I'll be the first to put one on the kitchen wall, then" , said I.

What a lovely surprise for you, I bet it will look lovely on the kitchen wall.

Love your 'unconventionalism' by Italian standards! I don't know if imagining it on your wall or imagining Rosa's shock makes me smile more! (and i mean those both in a loving way).

Hi, Cherie. Yes, it was such a surprise. Hi, Lost. I must say it looks pretty on the wall! Grazie, WW.
