Moments and snapshots

The radio is on filling the room with sound, while Moss sleeps on the carpet in front of the woodburner. She looks so relaxed and the tip of her tongue is sticking out .... 

The air is gently fragranced by a wonderfully vintage rose scented candle. The flickering light makes the walls appear to waft and shift as they change colour by the glow of the flame. 

Himself's gift of roses and lilies still look beautiful and are a daily reminder how lucky I am.

This morning I had the pleasure of creating a large spring inspired floral display for an upcoming private event at work. Although not complete - I will be adding snowdrops and ivy tomorrow - I was quietly pleased how it turned out.
A 'nest' of catkins, damp moss, straw and birch twigs surround the open mouth of the jar and if you stand near and close your eyes you can smell the woodland floor.
Small paper hearts hang from the twigs and tomorrow I will be finishing off the individual table decorations - vintage miss-matched china jugs, cups and sauces will be filled with snowdrops, catkins, rosemary and eucalyptus sprigs, twigs and moss.

They are destined for an afternoon tea hen do - I hope the weather plays nicely..... Storm Eunice you are not invited.

  1. What a lovely calm and relaxing post. I love mismatched vintage China for an afternoon tea. Hope Eunice doesn’t cause you too much trouble. My mum and sister have gone to Bude in north cornwall today … glad they weren’t leaving it till tomorrow. Stay safe ๐Ÿ’œ

    1. Thank you Carol - I am trying to create a better 'quality' of calm for myself and it seems to be working!
      The weather is atrocious today and it did make working (and driving) rather difficult - fortunately I am home now with a mug of tea and a dozy dog in front of the fire (again!)

    1. Thank you - it is a large carboy demijohn apparently from the 1960's. It makes quite good statement! It has been rather windy hasn't it!!
