Can you guess....

This is on my oldest daughter's dresser. She's home from college. Can you guess what her major is? LOL

She loves fresh flowers like her mom. We just differ on how to display them. But I gotta say her idea is pretty cute!

Lily of the Valley

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.
