Today, I combined pink calla lilies and small dark pink and yellow mums from the grocery store with yellow shrubby cinquefoil from the yard.
I had meant to take advantage of the lilies’ long stems, but they went mushy before I could make the arrangement, so I ended up with several short pieces.
The little pitcher is from Saturday’s flea market. It has a name very lightly impressed on the bottom, which I think is Schramberg, an old pottery maker from the Baden-Württemberg state of Germany. The mark would put this piece in the mid-1800s. I really liked the purple color.
I also made an arrangement (adding a few sprigs of pink spirea) in another purple transfer ware bowl that I’ve had for several years.

That’s a lovely color combination!
That’s a very stylish combination Cindy, and lovely vintage pottery too – thanks for sharing
Lovely arrangements. Callas do well in vases. You’re finding great bargains–the transfer ware is nice.
A wonderful flea market find! A real treasure. Your arrangements are a fine complement!
