It’s been several weeks since I’ve been thrift shopping. I’ve been struggling with a bad asthma flare-up that has taken awhile to get under control. Still not fully back to normal but feeling better than I was. Unfortunately, Thrift Stores and asthma do not mingle well. However, having said that, my wonderful Hubby brought me a little present…a lovely little glass pitcher from the Thrift Store. I have a small collection of glass pitchers and use them frequently. This one is the perfect size and shape for a nosegay of flowers.

I was feeling in need of a little Spring and Spring flowers are popping up in the garden. It’s still February but I am relishing these signs of Spring and needed to bring them indoors to brighten the space. Pink hyacinths, jonquils and daffodils fill the pretty little glass jar with Spring sunshine. They perfume the air and remind me that Winter will end .

I paired the flowers with a shawl in lovely blues and greens… the colors of a Spring sky and newly mown grass. A white candlestick holds a pillar candle in variations of green. Sunlight is reflected in the mirror as it warms the opposite room.

These gorgeous blooms fill the little glass pitcher to bursting providing an exuberant statement to be treasured. Blooming flowers signify hope and in mid-Winter hope for the Spring to come is a very good thing.

Here’s a look from the opposite side of the hall showing the length of the scarf as it carries the eye directly to the flowers.

A simple little Thrift Store glass pitcher was the perfect way to brighten my day!

  1. Wow! Can’t believe you have garden flowers! Our daffy greens are about 2 inches tall. Nothing is blooming & we’re scheduled for another cold blast this weekend. Cute pitcher. Feel better.

    1. It’s actually going to be 80 here today. Can’t believe the upper part of the country will be encased in ice and snow again. We have been lucky but tree pollen is a month early and that is not wonderful. Oh Well. I’ll still take the flowers over snow. LOL. Thanks for visiting and sharing.

  2. Sorry you have not been feeling to well. I loving the new water pitcher that your husband found for you. Fresh flowers are the best. Thank you for sharing with us today at the Home Imagined party.

  3. Hope you feel better soon! My daughter has asthma currently aggravated by a bronchitis attack; on prednisone with racing heart….miserable. So I sympathesize with you. They run their Roomba nightly for pet hairs and dust! Your husband is so thoughtful; tell him he is a keeper!!! In Maine, at least we had clean, new snow, and 10 degrees tonite; I envy you the warmth and flowers!

    1. Thanks, Kathy. Please give jy best to your daughter. Just coming off a round f prednisone myself. I can sympathize. We have an air filter going all the time in the bedroom as well as the house filters. It really can be difficult. Definitely keeping Hubby. Spring will be in Maine soon.
