morning tea

Yellow’s everywhere isn’t it?  Instead of purchasing a ceramic pineapple or owl (the two favoured yellow homeware items I’ve noticed everywhere of late) I’ve introduced a bit more yellow into my life with these dried flowers. I bought them from Lord Butler.

what a beautiful florist with so many great ideas.   It's not usually open, just while the elk sale was on (it's in the same building).

So many beautiful ideas for floral arrangments and plants and all things associated.  I walked out of this studio/warehouse seriously contemplating learning floristry.  Lord Butler isn’t usually open to walk in off the street, just while the elk sale was on (it’s in the same building).

And I have put them into my Nanna’s silver vase.  Which is perfect.  Because I don’t like to put water in this vase (I have this vague idea that it’s not good for the silver, right?  Or am I mistaken?)  and these flowers don’t need any.  I probably should polish the vase, shouldn’t I?  But then again, if I do it will show up all the other tarnished silver things I have.  And then I might be endlessly polishing silver. So on second thoughts, I think I’ll just leave it as is.


I’ve got the vase on my kitchen table.  The flowers look great with the yellow Johnson cups and plates that I have out at the moment. And the saucer.  It’s one of my favourites. Myott.  So cheery.
