Pussy willows

Pussy willows!

 As a teenager I remember having some in a container and I would hang my necklaces on the branches.  It would be many, many years before I had any more, but I probably love them even more today!

Sunday afternoon we visited a couple of Seattle area outdoor markets.  I was on the lookout for some pussy willows!  There was only one vendor that had any and my sweet husband bought me a bundle for $5 which could be divided up into 3 bouquets for using in different places.

I love that I can use something in decorating my home that has fond memories attached to it!

I hope your weekend is filled with simple blessings!

  1. Your arrangements all look so pretty! I really like them all but I think my favorite is the one in the little crock with the blue house on it. Enjoy your day and God bless.
