A floral affair

Hello lovely people, so I thought I'd share some of the pictures I took of my Mum's beautiful flowers she's grown. All of the flowers seen in this array of glass jars and jugs were grown in our garden and at my Mum's flower plot and I couldn't resist photographing them. I love how the almost mustard yellows contrast the bluey-purple tones in the other flowers!

The little vases are made from recycled glass jars and bottles. We're both collecting glass jars/bottles so our house has boxes and cupboards full of them, I swear we will use them someday. To make the little bows to give the glass a little character we just wrapped some old fabric around the glass and secured it by wrapping and typing some string around it.

I'd love to see your collection of glass jars and bottles and your flowers, so make sure to leave a comment below and I'll check them out :)
