My mom has a huge hydrangea bush in her garden- I mean HUGE. It's pretty much taking over the east side of the house, and it's beautiful. I was over there last night and she sent me home with a nice big bunch of my own!
Then I realized I didn't have a vase or anything to display them. I quickly remembered something I had seen at an antique store a couple weeks ago... a big white ironstone pitcher for only $9. But it was over two weeks ago, and at that price surely it would be gone by now. The store is just a few minutes from my house, so I made the trip this morning anyways just to make sure. And to my surprise, it was still there! Hooray!
It has a few minor cracks and flaws, but that makes it all the more attractive. A little character never hurt anyone. :)
The hydrangeas look so pretty sitting on the coffee table. Speaking of, I want a new coffee table. This one is so blah. We got it for free right after we were married and at that time the "free" factor won over the "blah" factor. I'm on the hunt for a new one!
The little white blooms were super cute on the dining room table too...
They looked cute everywhere I put them! I may just have to go back to my mom's to snip some more...
