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.
