Little Bitty...Bits of Beauty

I don't recall where I found this tiny little bitty blue my favorite colors of blue there is.

It may have come from under one of the old barns we've torn down on this place, I don't know--I've had it seems like forever!  

But what I do know is that it's the perfect size for tiny spring blooms:  violets, grape hyacinths, and of course, Lilly of the Valley...

And the nice thing about it is that it fits on my narrow windowsill--just a couple inches tall.

Sometimes when I look at my spring blossoms, I get so giddy, I want to bring bitty bits of beauty inside with me for a little while, to wonder at.  

Do they affect you that way, too?

And this little scene really makes me smile each time I glance up at it, in my kitchen window.

Happy Monday, friends!

Oh yes! I want to bring in a little of everything, holding onto it as long as possible. I posted on my spring bouquet last week; it was also in a blue bottle I found in a trash dump. I think it must be a milk of magnesia bottle. lol I also have the small blue flowers like yours; they spread out into the area around them.

yes, I love spring flowers, and want to bring them inside.
I love your blue vase! I have one tiny vase that I love, and it really isn't a vase. It is a little syrup bottle from a restaurant.
I think I should go outside and cut some Grape Hyacinths to put in it.

It's funny what a little cobalt blue in the sunshine will do to lift our spirits and the flowers are perfect for the bottle. Gorgeous!
