The Merry Month of May!

20150430-MMA_4463_melinda_anderson-Edit

It’s May! When I was teaching, May was a big CRUNCH month: testing, Open House, Authors’ Party, Mother’s Day presents to make, field trip, parent helper gifts, student gifts, end of the year party, report cards, room pack-up, etc. etc.  It makes me tired just to think of it! Now, May is SPRING, for sure, and summer isn’t far behind. And in Arizona, I know monsoon season is only 6 weeks or so away!

Our latest lesson for BeStill 52 asked us to find an unique vessel for flowers or whatever to use in our stills- so I thought of this new teapot I bought this week to replace the cracked one, which didn’t make the cut when we moved.  Turquoise is becoming one of the colors I love to use in our Arizona house, although my husband thinks it doesn’t match our multicolored walls.  So far, I’ve acquired Mason jars, a bowl, a lantern, and now this teapot in shades of turquiose.  I just really love the color and am so glad that it’s popular again!

Teapot1 Teapot2In my life, a teapot isn’t an unusual vessel for flowers, but I do have an idea for another take on this challenge. Stay tuned!

Linking up with Kim’s Friday Finds today.

  5. I love the colour turquoise as well and also use teapots as occasional vases. I have a very pretty buttery yellow one that I use very often.

  6. Love the teapot used as a vessel. And the turquoise color is so complimentary to the lavender flowers. Love the lens baby focus so soft and soothing. I can see these printed for your AZ walls! May is a busy month and it is also one of my favorites as spring is in full swing and warmer days and nights to enjoy the outdoors!!
