Rustic Romantic

Two tarnished old utilitarian pitchers have been sitting in my kitchen cupboard for quite some time.  Sitting and waiting...to be paired with pretty flowers!  I've always loved the contrast of the rustic and the romantic.  These pink hydrangeas were a recent purchase at the grocery store.  They've got a lovely soft pink color to showcase against the tarnished metal of this pitcher/can/whatsit(?):



This romantic match-up provides some nice texture amidst all my whites...

Speaking of whites...here we have another vintage pitcher/can holding dried baby's breath:

More texture to enjoy...

Spring has me busy cleaning and planning a new Etsy collection. Stay tuned, friends!
