Some little thoughts

New Pretty Vases and Flowers in the Shop

Its so exciting to get pretty new things in our little shop. Today we were treated with some beautiful new flowers and this gorgeous smokey glass vase.   Both are delicious.   I'm always proclaiming love for these white Majolica spray roses, they are, in my opinion just perfect.     With Valentine's Day around the corner we have our hearts set on any of these bouquets ... we're not fussy!
