In a Vase on Monday: Birthday Mums


The beautifully autumnal bouquet that I was given on Friday has made three arrangements. dsc_0005

Just perfect to put in the spare bedroom to welcome a very special friend who is coming to stay – so looking forward to seeing her!dsc_0008

Using the Yugoslavian metal jug, given to me by my Mum many years ago, and the dinky square pot made by Chive, which I bought after seeing it at Chelsea Flower Show in June.

The mirror is one given to me by my dear mother-in-law, and the little white nature goddess came from a shop in Glastonbury a long, long time ago.


The glass vase is brightening up the bathroom windowsill.dsc_0020

  4. Your mums are colourful and very cheering. I love the red floral vase and the little square one is delightful. I suspect your home is like mine – full of items that have a memory attached them, like your mirror and the nature goddess. Happy Birthday!

    • You are right Elizabeth, every item has a memory attached, my home is like a museum of my life and I love it that way! I do like the look of minimalism but I could never live in it! Thank you for the birthday wishes, I have had a fabulous birthday week. ❤


  5. Happy Birthday from yet another Scorpio, maybe it is a gardening sign as well. I do see a Scorpion now and again.
    There is something cheery about Mums this time of year!

  12. Happy birthday. Lovely arrangements you’ve assembled. I found your story about your Great Uncle so interesting. My cousin and I are working on family history as well. Going through some of the old photographs can just break your heart they’re so moving.
