Years ago I found the unusual postage stamp holder on the right. Take off the lid, insert a roll of stamps and feed the end out of a slot on the side. It came with the matching low bowl. Would this have held a sponge to moisten the stamps or perhaps be a paper clip receptacle?
Imagine my surprise last year when searching for egg vases when I came across this vase with the same pattern.
This shouldn't be confused with this egg vase from a couple of weeks ago.
It was offered with these two egg-shaped tiny plates.
So, since this vase was put together on Easter, why not use this accumulation of stuff for today's vase?
Contents include Kerria japonica, Vinca, some of those damned Spanish bluebells, some foliage of Bishop's Weed and for my little lost Chocolate girl, forget-me-nots.
Also some bleeding hearts
A camellia for the small bowl and some glass eggs for the small plates.
Looks like some grape hyacinths made it in there as well.here to join in the fun!
