Black and White Wednesday ~ Sunshine

Wednesday, March 10, 2010 |
This past weekend I bought arm loads of fresh flowers. I couldn't get enough of the beautiful fresh cut and potted spring flowers. 


I like to use different types of vessels for vases. This sweet little pitcher was made by my Aunt Joanne. She is an artist and at some point in her education, this was a project and then a gift to my mother. I love the flowers ~ it's hard to see but the petals are raised from the surface at varing levels for a 3D effect.

When I was a little girl she would fill it at lunch time with milk or water and allow me to pour it into my glass ~ it was the perfect size for my little hands and I thought it was a big deal!Today I'm using to hold my sweet kisses of sunshine!




Enjoy more black and whites at Lisa's.

What a beautiful vase! It's so cute to hear you used to play with it as a child. Now you are playing with it in an entirely different way.

Great processing of the flowers!
