Tulips and crystal

I love the look of tulips, so when I found theses pretty silk ones, I just had to have them. 

 They make such a lovely addition in my crystal vase to the dining room buffet.

Crystal is so pretty when it is grouped together and the tulips give  the vignette such an elegant look.

  15. How beautiful Marty and you just inspired me with the white lovely "silk tulips" see, there aren't any fresh tulips around here, as is a four season flower; therefore, I need to run and get them in silk like your gorgeous ones. The vignette is exquisite! Thank you for your sweet and kind comment on my new teapot! Big hugs,

  16. Marty they look lovely- and really look real!

    I have the most beautiful white tulips my hubs bought me for Easter - still jhave their bulbs and I potted them...but just otday they started losing their precious leaves. They lasted a long while though, but it got warm, so it was time I guess.

  17. So pretty and serene, Marty. xo Laura

  18. Beautiful, Marti!! The tulips are so pretty and I LOVE that etched crystal vase! You're right; groupings of like objects do make more of an impact. I love the elegant look of your buffet.

    Visiting from Seasonal Sundays -- have a wonderful day!

  22. The two go perfectly together and I wouldn't even guess the tulips weren't real!

  23. Hi Marty,
    That is gorgeous dear!
    The crystal and tulips truly make a stunning combo.
    Still planning to come to AZ. later in May.
    I know it will be hot then but I don't care.
    After all our cold, it will feel good.
    Hugs friend,

  24. I don't know how you manage to make your vignettes all look so elegant and beautiful Marty, you are truly one talented lady. I too love tulips, 2nd set of flowers I ever got from my then- boyfriend/no-husband. :-)

  25. What a lovely tulips, wonderful combination, looks amazing. For my page for my work I need a web hosting,, a friend of mine recommended me have you ever heard about them. i have checked there web site and it seems that they offer chip prices and good performances unlimited web hosting space and unlimited bandwidth.

  26. Marty, Your buffet is beautiful with the crystal and tulips. I would have been hard pressed to guess the tulips were faux. The light filtering through is lovely. You make such beautiful vignettes.
    Blessings, Ginger

  27. Beautiful! Tulips are my favorite flower!

  28. Beautiful! They look real!
    I'm visiting you today from Give Me The Goods. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!
