fleur-de-lis | (also fleur-de-lys)
noun (pl. fleurs-de-lis pronunc. same)
1 Art & Heraldry a stylized lily composed of three petals bound together near their bases. It is especially known from the former royal arms of France, in which it appears in gold on a blue field.

My home is filled with them, the best ones gifts from the many thoughtful and generous people who fill my life. Yesterday, I got a surprise package in the mail from Miette with a note saying she saw this fleur and thought of me and that it was just too good to pass up. I think it’s meant to adorn a bottle of wine, but I draped it on my 105mm instead so that I can look at it while I work. 🙂

  • christine - more than a year later and that fleur is still hanging around a bottle of wine we got as a gift! a very special bottle, LSU memorabilia. it’s beautiful. and quite safe, as I’m sure in another decade, Carlos still won’t have opened that wine! 🙂ReplyCancel
