Monday Musings

Spring is not just around the corner. A bit of bright yellow to glance at during the day helps when the skies are grey, the rain is generous and the temperature is winter jacket and gloves cold.


Following along with so many other bloggers I shop my home when making vignettes.


Narcissus are from Lee's in Fort Langley. I love the old bottles, a wonderful find a year ago from a vintage gentleman bottle collector. My heron bowl shows up in many earlier vignettes, its a handy size for a potted plant.


Simple Pleasures.

  6. I love shopping from my own home! Love your old bottles, too!! I have a few and always wonder where they have been and what they were used for. It's a warm day here in Texas......in the 70's and we worked in the flower bed for hours! What a difference in the weather from way there to way down here!

  13. Your pretty daffodils really make me think it is Spring. I am ready, but not liking the Cedar pollen which is so heavy right now. It will go away soon. Old bottles are so interesting ... and everything makes a very pretty vignette. Thanks for sharing.

  14. I never met an old bottle I didn't like! Bringing a little spring inside is the perfect way to beat the January blahs.

  18. Absolutely beautiful! I love the color! I've got paper whites to force in glass containers and plan to start them this week. Very fun to watch them grow, especially for my sweet grand girls.
