From my petite jardin

Hi Everyone!

My lavender plants are doing beautifully right now...Full of pretty, purple, aromatic flowers. I just had to bring some of that beauty and heavenly scent inside...
I thought this pretty vintagey salt shaker I found at a thrift store for only 65 cents would make the perfect vase for these sweet little flowers. Their tiny stems are a perfect fit to go right through the top of the shaker.  It is hard to tell from these pictures, but the glass is the prettiest light purple color.
My goodness....I do wish you could smell them....simply divine!
And to complete this simple yet sweet vignette, a pretty origami butterfly I made out of vintage music sheet. I do hope you've enjoyed your visit with me today and I hope you come again real soon.

Thank you for stopping by.




Hugs and Kisses,

Hello sweet Ana... your lavender is so pretty!... and your sweet little shaker is an old piece of purple pressed glass... dates prior to 1920 as before that, they used manganese in the glass, and after years of exposure to light and sunlight, the glass turns a beautiful purple color... I have quite a large collection of purple pressed glass and it is all so beautiful, you found a real treasure!... the more sunlight it gets, the deeper purple your little shaker will turn... love it!... xoxo Julie Marie
