Just living is not enough,” said the butterfly. “One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.”
This year we are growing our own sweet peas as it is a really cost effective way of having flowers fragrancing your home all summer. I have a lot of vases many just plain clear glass as I like flowers to take centre stage.
I wasn’t looking for another vase
But last week as I was browsing through the local charity shop this lovely unusual, little vase caught my eye. But this was rather special it is hand painted and each side is different.
I cannot wait to fill our hand painted treasure up with our home grown sweet peas.
I think it is quite the prettiest thing I have seen in a long while. It was a steal at just £5 and I think it has stolen my heart too. So lovingly hand painted, so bright and cheery.
Just perfect for our thrifty, colourful home.
