Simple Things

This is the first simple, little thing I am going to post about things I make at last minute decision!

My wonderful friends, Federica and Lorenzo, were coming to visit us and I wanted to have fresh flowers on the kitchen table to welcome them. I usually buy a rather big bunch of flowers and put them into an amazing old, ceramic, blue and white jug; this time, however, once at the flower shop I fell in love with just four little pink and lillac flowers which I thought were beautiful if kept simple. The trouble is: I don't have a nice, thin vase. So, I decided to quickly "decorate" a glass, tomato sauce jar, with a blue doily wrapped around the neck of the jar with a string. This is how it came out: very simple but lovely, I think.

Do you like it?

  1. What a original idea!
    The vase is very nice and romantic.
    Next time you can make a vase with Rob with the same technique used in the film "Ghost"!!!
