Everything's a Picture

You know by now that I love to make little displays around the house. Over the years I have gathered quite a collection of this & that and I am ever drawn to antique shades - particularly light blue.

When my best friend comes over, she walks around saying, "Everything's a picture - look!" and then she'll point to my latest vignette. Well, the other day it happened by accident.

I have my teacup full of bulbs growing on the sideboard (where they can get bright light), I set out my new aqua train case (future jewelry box?) and I had left my latest knitting project on the sideboard when the phone rang. When I came back, I "saw" the picture and started arranging. The paper butterfly in the bulbs matched the yarn, the brown dirt repeated the lining of the train case and it all just looked lovely together and I had to show you.

Such a perfect and creative vignette, Anne and the three colours blend so beautifully together! I have so many pretty tea cups that I never use - I've just discovered another use for them but you don't drill a hole in the bottom of the cup for drainage do you?

Oh, no! I do not drill - just a few marbles in the bottom to assist in drainage. These bulbs are growing furiously - I'm afraid the scale might be too tall for this little cup!
