Finding Pretty at Home with Potpouri

It was a rainy day yesterday ...

and I found Pretty at home ....

it was fun giving the two wooden cats a snug bed

of potpouri in an enamel basin ...

by reviving my old potpouri




... 2 cats snug in potpouri ...



.... detail of their 'headboard' behind their ears :

... a bundle of sticks, an abalone shell and a row of roses ...


Ingriedients for potpouri revival ceremony ...






... spices and oil in foreground









2 of grandma's delicate cups filled with dried roses ...





... cuppa a roses? ...





.... detail of woody ingredients ... thin slivers of orange rind, fynbos cones, eucalyptus leaves, eucalyptus seedpods, a bundle of twigs and acorn 'hats' ...





.... dried roses and a type of pine cone that looks like a rose to me, (a gift from a special young friend) and two long pods picked up in St Lucia on a holiday a long time ago ...





.. a few dried leaves from a tree I planted for in memory of Pa after he died 6 years ago ...





. and the finished product .. Ouma's cups never looked so good ...
