if the vase fits…

today, for the briefest of moments in time, i thought i had at last evaded the clutches of atelier abigail ahern

on each & every prior visit i’ve found it impossible to resist the lure of their wares, but not so today: i flitted past the florals, resisted the call of the porcelain parrots & afforded but a cursory glance towards the sweetly-scented candles…

even after doing my compulsory second lap of the store {in case i missed something on the first circuit}, i came up empty handed…

& so it was as i stepped onto the pavement sans purchases i felt a wave of victory & pride wash over me… at last! hoorah!

then i got approximately 50 metres down the road, doubled back & snagged myself this smoky grey glass vase…

& it’s the perfect vessel to house some fresh green & white flowers i already had on hand {though i happily admit my inspiration for the arrangement came from here}

what do you think? fleeting madness or a fruitful second thought?

  1. Definitely a fruitful second thought! Your arrangement may have been inspired by Gemma’s but I ADORE your take on it. Letting the berries trail out of (and away from) the vase? Genius! 😀

    Oh, and the vase isn’t half bad either. 😉

    P.S. Looks like your new home is already taking shape beautifully!

  2. Yes your flat is looking really lovely!
    I love that vase, I was eyeing it up in the shop too. Well done for being restrained, I bet you wanted to buy stacks more stuff xx

    • funnily enough, for the first time in a long time not much appealed there… i think the shop is in need of some more stock… it’s looking a little depleted (too popular!!!)… can’t wait to see what she brings in from maison!

i'd love to hear your thoughts...
