A few of our favourite things

Becs: My friend Anna was married last week, and instead of formal flower arrangements the tables featured a random array of glass jars filled with beautiful flowers and foliage.  I ransacked the Kerikeri opshops and was happy to score some really old Agee preserving jars for bargain prices, along with other beautiful old jam jars that must have been sitting in someones pantry for far too long judging by the age of the labels.  (The sort of thing they sell at vintage shops like the wonderful Flotsam and Jetsam and the like for ramped up prices) I was at the Christchurch EcoShop the other day, this is where the junk from the dump that is deemed saleable ends up.. and was thrilled to find half a dozen original Soda Stream bottles.  The rippled glass looks beautiful filled with water and a pretty bloom or two.


  1. Those bottles are beautiful! All the best to you friend Anna!


  2. What a great idea! They are just so pretty and so vintage looking - I adore them. Becks xxx

  3. Lovely bottles and hellebores which are so often hard to display well with their downward droop! A family wedding in March featured a similar theme of vintage vases with flowers - looks so natural.
