I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck. ~ Emma Goldman
It's no surprise that I love flowers. If I could afford them, I'd have fresh flowers in every room of my home all year long. During the summer, it's easy. I pick whatever's growing and even if it's just a single rose or a stem of lily of the valley, it has the power to completely transform a room - at least in my eyes.
It's snowing once again as I'm writing this but looking at my tulips, I can imagine that spring is just around the corner, patiently waiting to make her arrival.
I still prefer simple compositions of flowers. I like photographing them in vintage pitchers and mason jars, or paired with vintage books and tea cups.
Maybe it's the contrast of old and timeworn with fresh and new that I like. These are two of my favourite vintage books. I adore their blue cloth covers and they're worn just enough to make them interesting but are still in very usable condition.
Who doesn't love blue Mason jars? They're so versatile and I love the combination of the soft pink tulips against the aqua blue glass.
