I just couldn’t resist!
I can never resist gorgeous tulips, and now’s the time of year when they’re often plentiful and just so beautiful!
So, I purchased a handful of bright pink tulips at my local market for $4.87.
Once I got home, I re-cut my tulips and simply plopped them into a favorite container and filled it half way with room temp water.
I heard that they like the room temp water best.
Now, when it comes to a container – I think I have stated that I’m always on the hunt for interesting containers/vessels for flowers.
So, when I found this teapot in the sales section at Marshalls, because it was missing it’s lid, I found a keeper.
$6.00 was a steal of a deal. Don’t you think?
And…. It is lovely with it’s fluted top and golden trim.
It reminds me of the teapot in Beauty and the Beast, Mrs. Potts
This little gem fit right in my humble collection of mis-matched vintage pitchers, cups, and sugar bowls.
All are just the right mix for any seasonal flower display.
Even better, I think my teapot looks a little vintage.
A Floral Encounter
When it comes table top decor- I like it simple. I don’t generally leave it just the same as where it starts at the beginning of a season. Things get moved around A. Lot!
Flowers are added when the season and styling changes. So a key thing for me is keeping it simple with basics that will work with most everything.
I know… things should be grouped in odd numbers.
I shopped my house, but found nothing to accompany this grouping.
So, I liked it as is.
A Little Unexpected
By adding this half-burned wood burl that is rich in texture and color creates a little character. I love bringing nature into my modern farm house. It creates a big effect and is a great conversation piece. I think I might even like it as a finishing touch to a stack of books, added in a bowl, or a basket.
A little rambling today, about pretty pink tulips, and great unexpected finds.
Just some random thoughts on how I do home and the unexpected.
What is your favorite spring flower?
