I love this little collection of pitchers. All different in shape and texture but all the same light green colour and all from the 1940's or 1950's.
A collection however small needs to have a common link between the objects. The link can be really anything from colour, function, style, shapes or age and brought together will make an interesting and loved collection.
My small collection of similar jugs consists of these three smaller green ones and two larger light blue ones. They all sit on a shelf in my kitchen and they are often used as handy little vases.
You have probably noticed that I am very keen on ribbons and I love adding them to anything I can. Here I have tied short pieces of ribbon to the handles of the pitchers as decoration. I have kept the colours to green and light grey as I did not want to bring attention away from the pretty colours of the flowers.
Almost all my ribbons comes from the lovely lady Jane Means. She designs her own ribbons and sells them on-line. She also does gift wrapping workshops and demonstrations.
I have very simply used a short piece of ribbon and just made a knot. I did not do a bow as I did not want to make it looking too sweet. I have left one jug empty for a bit of contrast.
Yes, I am using hessian again. I love the texture and colour of hessian and it gives it a bit of a rough edge to the whole arrangement. I have also again used some of the irresistible stock flowers in bright pink and purple. It is such an amazing flower - scented, beautiful and it lasts for ages!
Have a lovely week!
