I was picking flowers in the garden when a neighbour stopped by for a chat, knowing I might be some time I popped the flowers in the watering can – boom! right there – perfect for IAVOM!
They did make it into a vase as well. (but to me they look better in the can!)
The ceramic vases are the ones I bought at the Studio Pottery near Solva, Pembrokeshire, Wales. You can see these sculptural vases in detail in this post.
To cheer up a dark corner I added tea-light holders made of used tea bags.
My fascination with turning rubbish into art has taken me off at a teabag tangent.
I tear open used teabags, empty out the leaves and then dry them. They can then be used like paper, you can see a greetings card I made here.
For today – some papier-mâché tea-light holders.
Add some pressed Japanese Maple leaves between the layers and hey presto a Teabag Tealight!
I think the spiky maple leaves look a bit witchy – do you? Good for Halloween?
Pop across to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what gardeners all over the world are putting in their vases this Monday.
