Spring flowers and a zinc body pitcher

One of the best parts of spring, in my opinion, are the gorgeous flowers.  The constant sneezing and scratching my eyes until they are the color of beets is almost offset by the beauty of snowballs, tulips, daffodils, peonies....etc.  

I really like these zinc body pitchers and am thrilled to be adding two to my etsy shop on Friday.  

My sister in law, Cheryl, of Fresh Vanilla for C, gave me the mercury C for my birthday.  I love it!

As I say often, I love the contrast between the old and beat up and the fragile and lovely. The snowballs feel as though they could barely withstand the drive home.  Whereas the pitcher is decades old and very rugged looking.  

Today is my friend Kristy's bday.  I decided to make her a little arrangement.  

And, so typical me, I make the effort to hand emboss the card.  But I neglect to remake it when I stamp the "d" backwards.  I am going to say that it adds to the charm.  ;)

I hope that you are all enjoying a lovely week.  I am very grateful today for everything that I have been blessed with.
