When I bought my house in Swarthmore, I had no idea that the front and back yards were filled with these little lovelies and when they bloomed the next spring, I was beyond ecstatic. For about a month each spring, I take pleasure in these sweetly scented, bell-shaped beauties and showcase them in my house every chance I get!
Some of my yearly clippings always embellish the bonnet of my cherished hat-lady vase, while others crave a glitzier, less customary destination.
I first saw the idea for this year's Lily of the Valley display on Pinterest. There were several re-posts of the inspiration so I am unable to credit the original crafter….I apologize in advance. I bet it was Martha.
This was not my idea, but as with many things, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so I am happy to flatter!1. Gather your burned-out traditional light bulbs. Clear ones work best.
How totally awesome is that!? Hang from a chandelier or a candle-holder centerpiece.
Although environmentally more friendly, this idea won’t work as well with an energy smart bulb!
