A Little Pitcher of Joy

"The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts well out of proportion to their size." -- Gertrude S. Wister

Very nice! It's amazing how fresh flowers can brighten up your day. I've started putting them in my kitchen.

I want to tell you this morning that when I spent a few minutes last evening before retiring browsing through your beautiful posts, I felt so nurtured and filled with joy.

Your gift for beauty and how to share it with the world is an inspiration to me... as this is my dream as well.

I wish you happiest day... and may heaven's joy drift your way in ever so many unexpected pleasures this day.

I have the same pitcher and a smaller one to match. But I don't have the beautiful tulips in them. Such a lovely Spring look. I love tulips. BTW I order the paperdoll and clothes from Sandy for my granddaughter for Valentine's Day. It is just delightful, I know she will be excited. Thank you for sharing about Sandy's talents.

They are gorgeous and my favorite flower!

Oh, I loooooove the pitcher! Where did you find it?
I put some tulips in one of my glass hurricanes over the weekend. I just couldn't leave the store without them.

When my local Marshall's store had all those pitchers, I went and bought one in every style. I just couldn't help myself, they were just such a bit of cheeriness. I kept finding myself in the store, creeping down the aisle, until each one found a new home in my cupboard. I love having a tea and using them all at the same time. Now I am thinking I need a bunch of tulips!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Suzanne, I found those little pitchers at TJ Maxx. I admired them when the store got them, but didn't buy any. But when I found that line on clearance for $2 and $3, I couldn't pass them up!

Pretty Posies in the perfect pitcher :o) The tulips are beautiful! Flowers lend such beauty to their surroundings. I love your posts!

Blessings and Aloha!

In fact, I just posted a "Part 2" about our daughter's wedding, which she incorporated her idea for her bridesmaids, maid of honor and her wedding bouquet. She had 7 bouquets filled with a different variety of white bloom for each of her girls in her wedding party. And then for her bouquet, she had all of the white varieties representing the girls who supported and were part of this special day.
