Mum's the Word

Who can resist the profusely petaled mum- especially when it's this incredibly pink! A handful of these saucer sized blooms, cut short, and bunched together in a creamy stoneware vase, makes for a happy  start to the day. 
Meanwhile...utility and beauty perfect their union in the form of a clamshell.  More than a beautiful, natural curiosity, it can serve as a useful jewelry tray as well! Put your beautiful objects to good use!
