Spring is in full swing.
Being outside during the day is utterly blissful.
In my bid to lure some of this magic indoors
I have made a "Spring Branch"
The blossoms that ordained this Plum Tree branch have long since fell off.
However I decided not to throw it out...
I have hung little bottles on it and filled them with Jasmine and Freesias.
It's so lovely walking into the kitchen in the morning, looking at my colourful little
hearth and drinking in the sweet scent of the Jasmine.
I used wire & these handy little hooks to secure the apothecary bottles....
Then I added a few bits of pink ribbon - for extra "pizazz"
I love the way the fairy lights sparkle in the water of each bottle...
Kind of like giant raindrops
I think even my ceramic bunnies are enjoying the frivolity of this
Ode to Spring.
They look especially magical at night....
My very own Neverland.
Indeed I am at a loss without my candles and string lights.
Hubby jokes that I should own shares in the tea light industry.
I have even rejected the environmentally friendly, energy saving merits of LED lights.
I'm afraid their "glow" (or lack of) just doesn't measure up.
Apologies then to the inventors of this earth loving technology.
I will embrace it where I can.
But do not ask me to give up my
traditional string lights.
In my defence though I must add that I usually have
every other light source turned off at night
The hidden agenda being that I wish to savour all the romantically
lit treasures in my home.
Teeny tiny bit selfish yes...
But ever so pretty too
PS - My clay tags are all dried and I've attached the twine.
I'm happy with the result.
What say you?
