Fleur De Lis

This has become my latest obsession. Not the tassel itself but the Fleur De Lis that adorns it. In my never ending quest to decorate my little red house I have noticed how my taste in decor has changed from just a couple of years ago. I simply cannot get enough of wrought iron, anything with tassels, dark wood all and anything monogrammed with our family letter and the Fleur De Lis symbol. I have acquired a few items sporadically placed around my home and plan on adding many many more. As A matter of fact a few candle stands and night light shades (with beads of coarse) are waiting for my pick up... all adorned with this french symbol.
This symbol has been around for centuries and often could be seen on European coat of arms. It also is closely associated with French Monarchy.... Perfect!! After all A French countryside chateau is the look Im going for.
The symbol itself is a different version of a lilly. How beautiful! I will be sure to post pictures of my finds as soon as I bring them home. I can't wait!!!
