In a Vase on Monday – My “Copy Cat” Vase!


I was so inspired by Cathy’s magnificent egg cup collection, in her meme of last week, that I vowed to do a copy cat vase. Hope you don’t mind, Cathy!

I decided to show off my “collection” of four! The spotty ones were bought to co-ordinate with our dinner service, which we have displayed on our dresser. The other two came courtesy of our son’s Easter eggs from his childhood. Oh, and I added in a plain white one – the ones we actually use. ( After all, all good displays are based on odd numbers!) Not really much of a collection, eh? But I loved what Cathy did last week, with her eggcup, and it made me think twice about what you can use to make a lovely arrangement.

I picked a few blooms of an unknown miniature narcissus to grace the eggcup. These were planted out from a lovely Mother’s Day gift a couple of years ago. I’m so pleased it can live on in the garden. I chose to show off the display on the dresser, complete with the rest of the dinner set, and some examples of one of my collections.

Not much of an arrangement, but pretty, I think!

Please pop over to Cathy’s blog, “Rambling In The Garden”, to see more of her lovely, imaginative vases.
