White on White

Aaaahhh! Saturday! Since I have to stay put and wait for the washer and dryer, I might as well put my energy to good use and work in the garden...What to do, what to do? So many little time!

But first! I MUST pick a lovely lilly of the valley bouquet! Last year I started to pick all my lilly of the valley and then I realized my well meaning but moronic neighbor mowed all I had on the side of the house! Boy was I mad!

So this year I didn't take any chances...I put one of these white wire fence (from the dollar store) around it...Take that you mower maniac!

So this is what I picked

155 lilly of the valley sprigs to fit in this beautiful milkglass Westmoreland vase. I think it's in the Grapes pattern but I'm not sure. I picked it up last year at the Salvation Army for 2.99$. Of course this makes me think of Douce France @ Passion of Milkglass Collecting.
My parents really liked milkglass so that's where I started. I don't collect it per se, but if a piece strikes my fancy I will bring it home before you can say Shazbot!

Gotta go the washer and dryer will be here in 30min (they just called) and I have to cut some lilacs to bring inside....
