Flowers in painted pots

In the house we live in is one window beside the exit to the garden. It's a lovely window with a beautiful mantlepiece. It's passed by everyone leaving the house or coming home. During Christmas time I had some deco there and until last week there was still a plain wreath hanging. Now I put some painted pots there (hand-painted by our friend Ina) and planted some spring flowers. Don't they look pretty and make hope for the greenery and sweets scents that are to come soon?

We are having visitors since Friday - which is great but keep me busy! 

So I am off again - see you tomorrow! 
Hopefully I'll have more time then!

  1. Dear Christa
    You made me my Sunday !!!Your hand paint pots are so pretty and I think it is a nice way to bring the spring in your home !I'll do it very soon !
    Have a nice week with your visitors

  2. What a lovely and refreshing idea to paint ordinary terracotta plant pots and their saucers. You will have weeks of pleasure from them.

  3. What a fantastic idea, Christa! I'll paint some terracotta pots for my plants, here in England, but also, I'll do some in Italy, during the holidays. It will be a lovely project for me. I'll buy several tiny pots of enamel paint in different shades. I love bright and sunny colours (though I only wear black!)

    Thank you!

    Your friend Ina is very clever and is obviously inspired by Impressionist art! Very, very nice!




  4. They are as pretty as can be!
