She chose a simple glass bowl.  She added a few clear pebbles, and some water to cover
them.  She added fresh flowers, mostly from her garden.  She gave it to me as a gift.  I
placed it on my kitchen island, and I got to enjoy it for several days.  I thought I had to
share it with you, because of it's simplicity and beauty.

I liked her chose of flowers, colors, and textures.
This week, I threw the flowers away, washed the bowl, and tackled my way of arranging

I wished for her skills, but I did the best I could with what was growing in my garden.

I added a glass votive with a candle.  With the pebbles and water in the bottom of the bowl, it
is easy to arrange the flowers.  Maybe you have a glass bowl, some fresh flowers, and you'd
like to dress up your table.

Last weekend, We visited a chocolate/gift shop.  On the porch of the shop, they had a display of
these adorable fairy gardens.

So creatively done!  I liked how this one was arranged in an old agate roaster.

We walked past a row of the sweetest, most fragrant lilacs ever!  I learned that they were
miniature "Miss Kim" lilacs.  I wanted to pull up a chair, sit there on the sidewalk, for the
rest of the afternoon, and take in the aroma.

We remarked about this display of planted flowers, in old crocks.  I am sure it will look
even better when the flowers start cascading down over the crocks. 

Last of all, do any of you know what type of glass goblet this is?  My Mother had this in her
glass collection, and we don't know where she got it, or what type of glass it is.  I set a
battery operated tea light in it, and I think it is so pretty.

Once again, nature is putting on a beautiful display of it's finest flowers.  Here are just a
few ways they can be showcased this Spring.

Thank you for stopping by.   Happy Thursday!

Flowers bring such joy and your photos and suggestions are lovely ways to enjoy their beauty. I don't recognize the glass cup but is does look so pretty with the little light shining through.

I am so glad you shared this idea with us, Judy. The glass bowl looks gorgeous both ways. I often see them at thrift shops and will purchase the next one I see. This makes a beautiful centerpiece and could change for the seasons so well.
The fairy gardens are also adorable. I am always amazed at the creativity that goes into them.
Your mother's goblet looks so pretty with the tea light in it. I wonder if it might be carnival glass.

What a great idea for the glass bowl. I love simple arrangements and will remember this idea for my future reference for sure. I love using votives in arrangements too. Thanks for sharing!

Such a pretty variety of miniature gardens! I love this season of blooms!

Awwe. So pretty! It's always good to have someone else's great idea to copy. Thanks for sharing.

I think your goblet is carnival glass. If you do a google search for Dugan Marigold Carnival Glass Goblet you will see similar ones.

Here are similar ones:

Dear Friends, You have been so helpful in sharing the information about my goblet. I appreciate it so much! Thank you! Now, could you please help me with knowing where she got it? That will remain a question in my mind.
