A Goodwill Sweetie

 
Found this sweet little pitcher at Goodwill a few weeks ago for only $2.99.  I love it's curvy top and how it screams "spring".  I didn't really need it, but thought it would look lovely on my hutch when I change it over for it's spring look.
 




 
I find the closer it gets to spring, the more I want to fill my house with green, so I threw a clean rag rug on the table that offered the right combination of texture and color and paired it with the pitcher.
Since it seemed a little bit early to pull out the spring silks, I decided just to use my faux head of lettuce in it.
 










I love the ephemera on this lettuce and the way the light shines through it.
 




 
For now, this simple splash of green will hold me over 
until it begins in earnest outside.

That is so cute, and I say you definitely needed it! The color is perfect, most of the time when you find pitchers they need a little makeover, but not your's its perfect!
