Friday Pretties -- Lily Of The Valley

Joyce from "I Love Pretty Little Things" is so graciously hosting "Friday Pretties" .... this is my first time joining in.   I'm looking forward to visiting Joyce's blog in the morning and following her links to the blogs of everyone who is participating.   One can never see too many Pretties! 

I would like to show you one of the favorite things I have in my kitchen .... lily of the valley plates and cups I purchased on ebay about three years ago.  

click photos to enlarge

the handle on one of the cups is broken .... but it's still pretty .... and it reminds me of the beauty of brokenness before God

pretty white tablecloth ...

pretty pictures on pretty-smelling talcum powder ... lily of the valley fragrance

pretty glasses

Lily of the Valley scrapbook art ... made from an illustration in an old Victoria magazine, showing a little girl wearing a dress with lily of the valley fabric.  To see more of my digital art, visit

The lily of the valley has the flower meaning of humility, chastity, sweetness and purity.

"He's the Lily of the Valley .... He's the Bright and Morning Star ... He's the Fairest of Ten Thousand"

May His Gentleness and Tenderness be the most beautiful things in your life this week.

Okay I'm totally taken with your banner photo! And I love the shot of the tea cups & pottery with the lilies of the valley, they smell so heavenly. That's a beautiful table you've set and some beautiful photos.

I love Lily of the Valley -- Jennifer has always claimed it as one of her favorites too. I think its the flower for May.
The dishes made me think of having cheesecake together & using these plates.....I could also drink my Diet Dr. Pepper out of the glasses.

Very beautiful Frances. I don't think you ever told us you had bought these. They set a lovely table when you're having a special luncheon for a couple friends.
