A Simple Bouquet

Maybe it is all the purple inspirations that I have been gathering up
for the paint for my daughters room but I am loving pale purple these days.



I have a large bouquet of lilacs in the living room in a shabby white vase
but took just  a couple small blooms and placed them into a little old blue  antique bottle


So simple


Charming


&
 sweet.


It's a quiet bouquet...
 and only 2 or 3 small lilac blooms are all that are needed
to fill the jar and a small room with their scent.


The blooms are starting to drop their teeny tiny star shaped blossoms everywhere 


which are absolutely sweet all by themselves.


Paired with an antique chocolate cup and saucer covered
 in tiny little purple flowers


a perfect little vignette appeared on the shabby table in my office.


Just a quiet inspiration post (and practicing photography )to share the little bouquet
that is charming me while I work on a few pillows for the living room
and maybe a little ruffled creation.
;)

More on that soon!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

  1. Cuttings add such a nice touch of color. I also like to use white hydrangeas just like you show in your picture.

  10. Love these pics, Courtney!! So pretty and I bet aromatic. This is one I don't have that I really wish I did. I have the jasmine that took 3 years, but was totally worth it! Wish I had a space to plant some of these lovlies, too, though!! Thanks for sharing the beauty!
