...spring blooms!

sweet spring flowers!!

Hello dear ones!

I just can't seem to resist them ~
Can YOU??!
seems like every time I come home from the market,
a new flower bouquet has found it's way into my bag too!!

and who knew this cut glass candle hurricane,
 lovely white orchid
and some left over moss...

would look this pretty
all put together, on my end table??!

these, nothing special, thrift store finds,

could become this:

I've been gathering organic violet plants
so I may use their lovely flowers for my Easter salad
and sugar a few for some Easter treats!
and thought,
why not put a few in some vintage cups for the table too:)

I white washed the candle stand,

so some of the metal stand would still show through.
After I painted the wooden base of the glass cloche,

I simply added a few pretty vintage handkerchief's
and one of the hand painted cups
that just happen to have violets painted on it,

and "Viola"!!

a pretty display:)

I hope you're having an inspiring week!
come see what other spring pretties are over at
Faded Charm's White Wednesday!

here's to spring blooms!


  1. I love your display, is beautiful. I didn't know that you could eat violets. Can you eat any color/variety? I have had one for a lot of years, she blooms all year long, she is beautiful.
    Thank you for sharing those pictures, lovely!
