I was really looking forward this weekend to a repeat of this activity from last year…I know…it is hard to believe she was ever this tiny!
But a whole lot of rain just kept getting in the way. So instead of a luscious strawberry shortcake recipe, I decided to share one thing that seems to be thriving this crazy wet May…our roses. Because they seem to perk up my people, I decided to bring some inside and spread the love all through the house. Traditional vases are great but it is much more fun to use the unexpected to display these beauties.
A single blossom has a lot of impact when displayed in an antique ink bottle.
The vivid color of the blooms contrasts beautifully with the simple white enamelware salt box.
Roses in an antique Chinese tea box ? Why yes!
What a lovely way to greet visitors…roses in a double compote carnival glass dish!
Here’s hoping for drier weather this week. Annapolis comes alive for commissioning and the daring Blue Angels show…plus those strawberries aren’t going to pick themselves!
