I love lily of the valley! It’s so very pretty and smells so amazing! This little flower offers so much. Truly one of God’s spring gifts.
I was so lucky to find this antique cobalt vanity jar recently at a thrift store. The raised, hand painted lily of the valleys against the blue is so striking! Since it was missing its stopper, it’s become a vase!
So with today's picking from my cottage garden and my new little vase along with a crystal pitcher that was my husband’s grandmothers, I have this sweet vignette. It's sitting atop an antique pull work centerpiece on my tea table. Sweet and simple. I don’t think it needs anything else. I’m just sitting back and enjoying the sight and scent!
|I added just few sprigs of forget-me-nots for a touch of more blue.|
