Friday Flowers

A coronet of papery white can there be so many petals on one flower? They sat perfectly in the crown stamped vase and so one crown led to another!
It must be a subliminal influence from the Queen's Diamond Jubilee that has me thinking of crowns!

The weather was lovely yesterday, sunny and warm, daffodils are beginning to flower in the grass verges and tiny buds are appearing on shrubs and trees.........don't say it too loudly but Spring is just around the corner.

Have a lovely weekend.

Friday Flowers

I took this photograph a few weeks ago whilst the weather was still unseasonably warm. Since then these brave little flowers have been outside covered in snow, frozen stiff and now the weather is warmer again they are still in flower! I suppose that's why they are called Snowdrops.

I'm exhibiting at a Dollshouse Fair this Saturday and the weather doesn't look promising....rain, just what is needed when going backwards and forwards unloading the car. I shall be steaming gently for hours no doubt!!!

Whatever the weather where you are, I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Valentines for Vintage Lovers. Day 1.

I've been having fun photographing things with a heart shaped or flowery theme....blame Valentines Day! So I thought I'd share them with you one a day until Valentines Day.

Friday Flowers Salt and Pepperpot Bouquets

Funny what inspires us, sometimes it's something that nudges a memory, other times it's a fall in love moment that makes you want to recreate that thing but make it your own.
I've just discovered a lovely blog and her wonderful buttonholes inspired me to make some tiny arrangements, I've no need for buttonholes but I do have a collection of old salt and pepper and mustard pots that would make the perfect containers.

I started by raiding the garden for anything I thought might be useful and the kitchen for Sage and Rosemary. Everything went on a tray with scissors, ribbon and some small flowers snipped from vases around the house.

So here is what I came up with, tiny bouquets in a drop of water.

This last one is my absolute favourite, Waxflower an Ivy seed head and tendrils of Spanish Moss....thank you Miss Pickering for the inspiration!

I'm off to the theatre on Saturday night to see The Tango Show, who knows what that may inspire!

Have a lovely weekend
