Ruffled and Lacy White Flowers

Our white iris are blooming!

Aren't these ruffled petals so beautiful?

We have a lot of romantic white flowers in our yard this spring...

It seems as if it would be the perfect place for an outdoor wedding...

I found this milk can at the sale across the street last weekend...

...and these two silver baby spoons at a yard sale...

Wait! Is that a bride I see?

...or a ghost?

I think Starla is playing hide and seek!

Hope your week is going well..
So far I've done some organizing as well as some painting and even a little crafting too!

For more participants in White Wednesday...visit Kathleen at Faded Charm!

What beautiful white flowers. I have some iris, but not any that are all white and I don't have any lilly of the valley(wish I did). I keep seeing photos of it out in blogland.

You should link up with WW. Your photos are wonderful.

Take care,

Hi Laura,
Your flowers are so lovely!! I love the white lacy flowers in the silver milk jug, it is just beautiful. We don't have many flowers this year, just a few roses that have already bloomed and withered away. I hate it when they the blooms have all gone. Beautiful photos!
Have a great day.

I used to walk past a little house with a whole yard full of white irises when I was a little girl going home from school. Thanks for taking me back! Beautiful!

J'adore les iris, et blanc c'est encore mieux, les miens ne sont pas encore fleuris, mais j'ai une fleur encore plus précieuse à la maison c'est ma fille IRIS...

Hello dear Laura, what a lovely white flowers you have in the garden. I have also many white in the garden, but since last year I mixed it with pale pink and some blue.
The tin can and the babyspoons are a beautiful buy and how sweet is the picture of your cat behind the lace hihi.
I wish you have some wonderful days.
Warm wishes, Mea

Ahh, white flowers...beautiful, especially the lillies of the valley. Oh how I wish they would grow here in Florida. Starla looks lovely layered in lace too!

What is that cute little flower in the milk can?

Have a wonderful week.

The iris is a wonderful flower to paint.
When you look at the beauty of nature

Hi Laura

Your white post is beautiful and fresh. Our garden is so behind this year, I am still waiting for the Lilly of the Valleys to blossom!
Starla has a pretty little face.

I fell in love today - oh, so in love - thank you for your post - it's just lovely in a bouquet of ways, Jennifer jennsthreegraces...come to my garden one day....

Ange said...

Your irises and lily of the valley are just lovely. Each time I see the ruffles of irises I am reminded of petticoats. And I'm sure the white flowers you have in the milk can are the same as the ones I have in my garden too. Don't animals just make you giggle when you're busy getting on with life?
xx Ange
PS - the silver spoons are quite lovely. I just picked up a big amount of silverware from a fleamarket to use everyday instead of the IKEA stuff. Pretty spoons seem to be the hardest thing to come by. I believe more people than I thought have a spoon addiction!!

Rosemary said...

A fabulous White Wed post as usual!!
Love the flowers, and of course the ghost!

Sue said...

Your white iris are so lovely! Definitely on my garden wish list! And that lace you photoed in the pic with the little spoons - swoon!! Where did you find that treasure? I, um, have this thing for old lace :) You will see what I mean when we take the first class at Silver Bella together. I am sure I will be bringing some of my stash to play with!

Sorry to hear about the loss of your job BUT your positive attitude is AWESOME! Lost my job almost a year and a half ago and WOW, it has allowed me to spend time with the kids and fulfill my dream of owning my own boutique! A white iris-how pretty...I have never seen them in white!
