Sweet violets!

Yesterday I found a pretty patch of violets blooming in my backyard,

so I gathered together a little sweet-smelling bunch for the house.

I searched for my smallest vase to put them into but couldn't find it :-(
Aha! A last, I spied my white tinware candleholder in the cupboard,
 and instantly transformed it into a makeshift vase for my violets.
I think it looks perfectly lovely!
What do you think?


  1. They do look perfectly lovely. I haven't seen any of those in awhile now. Such a sweet flower.
    Good choice.

  2. Hi Trish,
    The violets look so 'olde worlde' in the candle holder...but I think violets look fabulous no matter what they are displayed in.
    They are my favourite flower.
    God Bless
