Week end outdoor...flowers and market...

A week end spent outdoor! No rain and I need air in this long winter!

A trip to the countryside...

















...flowers and moss for my arrangements...

















...I found a lot of these white-green anemones...
















...they look so delicate and fresh...

















...crocus and moss for the big metal bowl (anybody can tell me the right word in english???) bought at the antique market yesterday...

















...a walk around the stalls...

















...baskets...

















...rusty tools...



















...my finds for new projects...we'll have a new rainy week...something to creative to make in my free time!

A very nice week to you!

What a great weekend...I'm wishing I could be at that market! I want that dress form, and almost everything else I can see in the pictures. Those flowers are beautiful, too.
I think the metal bowl is called a compote, but I'm sure some of your readers who deal in antiques would know for sure.
I'm glad you had such a nice weekend, and are feeling better. Have a great week!

If you could see me you would see that I am as green with envy as the beautiful moss you have!!!! What amazing treasures you have all in one place!!! Mexico has not progressed to loving their old and vintage, well loved things. There are no flea markets here that have wonderful vintage treasures!! :(

Yes Stella is right the little dish is called a compote :) Have a wonderful week making a bit of art with the coming of spring.

Hello Vale,
What a nice bit of spring you have created! I love your pictures.
I think (I almost know for sure), that these flowers aren't Anemones, but Helleborus. Dusn't matter, they are just lovely.
Enjoy your week!

Hi there. It´s so nice to see all the beatiful flowers. We have so much snow here and during the weekend it came so much that they sent out warnings during the radio and television - DO NOT TRAVEL UNLESS YOU REALLY NEED TO!
But, today it´s much better again.
So, your photos today are lovely to see, because I´m awaiting spring now.
I´m much better in my neck now and one days rest was the best medicin.

Wish you a lovely monday!

Hugs from Mia
