Grape Hyacinth Flowers
Every spring I wait for the Grape Hyacinth flowers to bloom so I can put them in my tiny vases. If you have lilies of the valley, these tiny vases are just the right size for them like a fairy garden vase.
The tiny vases were my Mom’s. Each spring when I look at them I fondly recall my Mom putting Lilies of the Valley, Grape Hyacinths, and sometimes even Alyssum flowers in the vases.
Today I cleared the decks from our messy house that is under construction and took a few photos.
Look away if you notice the wood in my garden window that needs sanding, it’s only an illusion. Consider it Shabby Chic decor! I’ll get to my garden window soon, after the dining room project and after I quiet the loud screams in my yard that needs attention.
The two littlest vases have teeny tiny caps to close the bottle. I wonder if they are old-time medicine bottles that held small doses. The bottles are fun to fill with water and I have to shake them a few times to get the water out.
The blue Wedgwood plates were wedding gifts to my mother and father. We always had every holiday meal on these plates so they’re filled with memories. I wish I had the complete set. My favorite piece is the sugar bowl that has a broken handle. I am surprised even these pieces survived the abuse of a family of 10!
I followed a tutorial by Creative Cain Cabin to turn one of my Grape Hyacinth flowers into a watercolor photo with Pic Monkey. It was fun and quick to do so if you get the chance I recommend her easy step-by-step guide.
Take a stroll through my garden walk with fairies and gnomes from last year.
