Spring Greens

These sweet smelling vintage dew drops are some of the first signs of Spring in our garden.  I just love how each blossom seems to dance from the stem.


The bright green dots delicately painted by Mother Nature on each petal accentuate the pure white bell flower blooms.


These flowers grow low to the ground so the stems are not long and I love placing them in petit vases in special spots throughout our home.


The fresh green buds of soon to be floppy white hydrangeas are a perfect compliment to the tiny blooms.



I recently purchased this vintage Glamour Magazine After Five Cookbook, at the annual Old Books Sale in town. 


The illustrations and writing were so amusing I just had to snag it {for $1.50}...that, and perhaps I'll be a little inspired to do some retro Glamour Girl style cooking!



And at each place setting a bouquet of dew drops dances.


Enjoy your day.

Ciao amici,
Suzanne
