VIOLETS ON THE BUFFET FOR TEA TIME TUESDAY




The violets are coming up and blooming in my yard and in my home!  I absolutely love them......I have been saving an antique silverplate coffee pot for some time.  It had no lid and the spout was broken off.  Yesterday I did an arrangment in it for my buffet.





I glued a mushroom bird on the broken spout.....











Today is Tuesday which means I participate in Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage





Spring is on our calendar....yes we just had snow on Saturday night.....it didn't seem to hurt the few plants I put in the ground....and the older plants are all coming up well.





Late note:  This floral was sold at my shop.

HI BERNIDEEN,
HOPE YOU HAD A LOVELY EASTER,
I LOVE YOUR TEAPOT WITH THE VIOLETS, IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL.
GREAT IDEA HOW YOU FIXED AND MADE A VASE OUT OF YOUR COFFEE POT FOR FLOWERS. IT LOOKS GREAT, AND I LOVE YOUR LITTLE BIRD. TAKE CARE, AND HOPE YOUR
WEATHER BRINGS LOTS OF SUN.

Hello Bernideen,
I love your Violets teapot. It's so very pretty! I like making arrangements out of broken pots too. I have done it many times over the years and many a mushroom birdie has adorned my pieces. Your posts always make me hungry and I feel like baking. I don't know if that's a good thing or not! Thanks for joining Tea Time and I hope you have a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi
