We were over at my parents house on Friday for supper and I enjoyed these additions to the table. It just really reminded me of all the beauty that God has created. I love flowers and really enjoy vases of them around (and actually they did have a couple of vases of Johny-jump-ups too) but I really enjoyed seeing the beauty of other things that are not usually showcased as beautiful. The onions in the mug were actually to eat too but I thought the green stems in the blue mug was quite striking (it looked even neater in real life.) The swiss chard was some that Dad had grown and he wanted to enjoy the beauty of it and so brought it in and stuck it in a clear vase.
I was brousing other blogs lately and came across a neat post at Cheap, Healthy, Good. about was to use apples. She had two neat pictures of apples in vases . I especially liked the one of just green apples in a tall clear vase.
All of these things really make me want to do some experimenting with displaying odd bits of nature. God gave us beauty and uniqueness everywhere. It is just up to us to enjoy it!
