Spring Violets...

 
It was a big day
for small things...
 
big blue skies,
and tiny violets blooming...
 
their powerful scent
perfuming the air...
 
ahhhhh.....
 

I plucked a mini bundle,
tucked them in my favorite
tiny teacup...
 


 
I love this demitasse cups
over the top fancy handle...
 

 
 
 
small things
that make my heart pitter patter...
 
 
sending you a big whiff of
springs sweetness...
 
I am joining...
and
 
 
Thanks for stopping by today...

I can't think of a nicer place to display a miniature bouquet of flowers than in a teacup. Very pretty.

Just darling! The perfect tiny cup for those tiny flowers. We need to get some water going in our flower beds. No telling what might happen! So exciting to see yours happening!

So sweet, Bella. I love the little cup with violets.

Alas, no spring here yet. But we are hopeful. Susan

Sarah said...

Bella, thanks for the springtime treat. I wish we could grow violets here. I tried some wood violets, but they didn't work for me. Such a pretty little bouquet. Thanks for sharing!

Hello there lovely lady Bella,

My oh my!...Your lovely small little dainty white teacup demitasse cup with your over the top fancy handle is simply divine with those heavenly blue skies and dear tiny violets tucked demurely within it. So sweetly scented, perfuming the air. Ahhhhh indeed!...

Have marvelous week and thanks for sharing with us all.

What a darling little bouquet of spring sweetness! I can just imagine the lovely scent. The tea cup is just precious and the little embroidered hanky is so perfectly placed. Charming vignette, Bella. xx

Bella,
I have a THING for tiny teacups as well....I should do a post on my daughters tea sets and how it all was started!

I just found a set of demitasse cups on eBay that will be a fun addition to my Christmas tea set, that usually is used for hot chocolate.

I was over on your side of the state today,
We took our daughter and her hubby to Sea-Tac.
I found some lovely plants in Renton, and visite PS Stores, both of them! Fun things there, I wish I lived closer. It made me want to go to some Estate Sales, but I have NO idea where to even look! and it was a Monday, probably none today!
Beautiful pictures as always....
Hugs,
Betsy
