ladder love

hi everyone..


the old ladder's back again..this time filled with bottles, flowers and some newly acquired mason jars i picked up on etsy. 


i've been admiring these jars on some of the lovely american blogs i follow for ages and finally decided to pay the large postage cost to get some.


so happy to receive 2 aqua mason jars in the mail


this is the kind of blue sky weather we had this weekend


bella - the assistant












by the way thanks so much for all the well wishes and lavender tea ideas!

  8. Love your ladder with all those old bottles.. I have been having the same thoughts about mason jars, something you just don't see in England.. one day maybe :) x

  9. what gorgeous jars. Although allergic to cats, your Bella is beautiful and she looks very proud to be assisting you. She has a "is this ok?" look on her face! The only jar worth mentioning here today is the one of the bench at the holiday apartment (gold coast) we are staying in. We dug for pippies on the beach this afternoon and found three. Kids were thrilled, so we have a little observation project going on at the moment. Are the flowers in the jars from the "stylist own garden?" Jane x

  13. I love ladders and this contrast of the glass and the wood together works really well, and of course the flowers are so pretty.

    Actually I'm thinking about adding a 'ladders' album to my Pinterest, starting with yours! :)

  31. lovely use of an old ladder...

  32. This is so sweet. I love old bottles also. Have a couple of blue mason jars and I haven't pulled them out for a while. I am giving my future daughter-in-law a bridal shower later this month. This is such a cute idea. Hope you don't mind if I copy. Got the old ladder, a couple of tall tqs. bottles ordered from PB clearance. Now all I need is you to decorate it. Hee-hee! I'll do it, but it won't be quite as sweet as yours.
