A Basket of Beauty in the Bathroom... flowers, crystal, perfume...


It always amazes me just how much loveliness fresh flowers can bring to a simple day.
I picked this arrangement on the weekend, 
to fill a 1930s crystal basket vase, found in an antique shop a while ago,
which my cat thinks is actually his water bowl.
(He refuses to drink out of anything other than a vase,
after all, it would just be too predictable to drink from a cat bowl. No, no, no.)


The extraordinary pink pigface is in season again,
and the fun thing about this flower is that, even in a vase, it opens by day and closes by night.
As well as the common white daisy, 
there's also a rosette of Aeonium Zwartkop for some drama,
Indian Hawthorn for a flash of white and lots of cinneria maritime leaves for their silver softness.


Something so deliciously decadent about perfume, 
crystal, scented candles (the pink and gold teacup holds a gardenia perfumed candle from mor cosmetics) and fresh flowers.
It lifts the space from a utilitarian bathroom to a place of beauty. 
No wonder the cat prefers to partake of his aqua nourishment here!
