Hi there friends! I just wanted to share this lovely vintage jar that my sweet sweet friend, Tara, sent to me over the weekend. She has got to be one of the sweetest gals I know. Last week, she gave me a little heads up about keeping my eyes peeled for something in the post. A box from San Clemente arrived late Saturday and when I opened...I discovered the most wonderful jar under the sweetest hand written card. (im very big fan of handwritten cards and notes)
I was delighted.
So, while out today...I stopped by the market for a couple of things and walked out with 2 bunches of purple iris and nothing else that was on my list. I think that I lost all thought when I spotted them and I knew exactly where they would be going! Into my vintage jar. I wish that you could see the blueish green color that the jar has without the water in it. It's so pretty.
(the lid is my favorite part...it has such a wonderful patina on it)
I filled the jar up with water, stuffed my iris in it and then wrapped some burlap string around the neck and dangled a little crystal drop off of the end.
Almost as sweet as the girl who sent it!!
Thank you again, Tara!
I love my vintage gift.
She fits in perfectly in my home.
ps...isn't this world of blogging the most wonderful way to meet and befriend other women?
I spend more time here than in my kitchen.
shhh...don't tell mr c!!
