Paperwhites

I already told you guys in this post about my friend Heidi from the blog Dreams Intertwined giving me a beautiful Christmas cone filled with vintage treasures. Well she also gave me a pot of paper whites.
(Am I lucky to have her as a friend or what?)


I have never grown paper whites before and was so excited to have a pot of my own!


They are so incredibly beautiful and they smell heavenly!


I placed the plastic pot inside an urn of mine.
The pot already had moss in the bottom and I decided to tuck these cute little mushrooms in the moss.



I found them at Target and think I need  to find a way to keep them out all year round.



The blue matches my armoire perfectly.
I am still working on painting it.
I tend to get bored with projects easily.
One of these days I'll finish it up!



And now please enjoy 101 more photos.......
;)

















You can see the rest of the living room HERE if you want too. :)

  1. That's such a pretty vignette you've set up there...it all goes so well together. I love paperwhites too. I planted some about a week ago, but so far they're not doing too much.

  11. Hi Lisa,
    I love your blue armoire in the background and your paper whites look beautiful!
    I started mine a bit late, but they are growing and I was so excited because this was my first time with paper whites as well.
    Hope you have a lovely week.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda

  13. My friend went to a holiday house tour last weekend and said one of the homes was decorated with nothing but paper whites and one live christmas tree just covered in snowflakes. She said it was so pretty and smelled heavenly. I have mine but haven't planted it yet. Yours against the blue armoire is just gorgeous! Love your photography. ~ HWW
