Flowering Branches Inside

You know when you buy something that catches your eye, but then you bring it home and it kind of sits around and never really finds a home or fills a use?  I purchased a heavy blue vase a couple years ago that has since sat in my living room, half-heartedly holding some Chinese paper umbrellas, or even empty but has never really found a proper place in our home.  It’s size was always too awkward for most things I wanted it for… too big or too small, never quite right.  I thought about getting rid of it at a recent garage sale we had, except for that I actually quite like it, and was holding out hope that one day inspiration would hit, and I'd figure out what to do with it.

Well today was that day!

I did a little pruning off the poor old apple tree in our yard, and not wanting to discard the gorgeous flowering branches I had trimmed (yes not exactly the right time to be pruning... I know!), I remembered my old blue vase sitting forlornly in a corner of the living room. 

It was exactly the perfect container for the heavy, blossom-laden branches, and I have to say it looks quite stunning in my house.   To me, there is hardly a thing more beautiful than a flowering tree, and so to have this lovely bouquet in my home, with its sweet fragrance and tender blooms is like spring on the inside too.
