It’s a new year and I have a new vase, a Xmas present from Mr Petal & Pins!
It is by Tasmanian designer Sally Cassandra and features a striking imprint of lace that has been pressed into the surface and highlighted with black glaze.
It also has this interesting detail applied to the inside which makes it a striking object just on its own which is how I’ve been enjoying it displayed on the mantle piece since Xmas.
Yesterday we did some pruning in the garden and with a few small branches of maple leaves too beautiful to just add to the compost pile I decided to create my first 2016 flower arrangement for In a Vase On Monday.
I picked hydrangeas and lavender growing by the front of the house, both are such a mass of blooms I will be able to have several vases full and still have a showy display outside. The last addition was a piece of trumpet vine – the flowers similar in colour to the hydrangea but a nice contrast in shape.
In a Vase On Monday was started by Cathy from Rambling In The Garden as a weekly ritual of bringing something from the garden inside no matter what the season – why not join in for 2016 – post a link to yours in her comments section or add #inavaseonmonday to your instagram pics.
Beautiful arrangement and a lovely new vase!
Thanks Eliza, I hope you had a lovely Xmas 😘
Thank you, it was!
Very pretty and I love your vase!
The hydrangeas are lovely, Sandra, a vicarious summertime fix for us cold northern hemisphere folks, . The vase is quite pretty with the lace imprint.
Sorry for my late reply – thank you, I’m loving seeing snow covered gardens – that is a novelty for me!
What an intriguing vase that is – such an interesting concept and Mr Petals and PIns must surely be in your good books for choosing it (or perhaps you pointed him in the right direction…!). No wonder you wanted to use it straight away and very fetching it looks with the hydrangea and lavender and greenery – they make a good colour combination. Thanks for sharing
