Forget-me-not…

Patty Szymkowicz Painted Lady Fern Forget me notsa pot of summer blooming Forget-me-nots that I planted last year has gently spread among our Japanese painted ferns just off the back porch…

Patty Szymkowicz Forget-me-not T Pot

it is such a sweet little flower and the delicate blues really speak to me…

the blooms that were hanging over the stone border into the lawn were begging to be picked and I just happened to have a tiny china boot that made a nice vase …

and then I remembered one of my basket girls from Japan (the beautiful English Bone China cup belonged to my sweet mother-in-law)…

as will happen one thing led to another and I finished another chip board piece in my tea cup journal using cut out blooms from some of my photos and a Lord Byron quote…

still deciding with the postage stamp or without as my thought was to keep each cup rather simple (it is a challenge for me sometimes to leave open space)…

just a couple more cups to go and I can show them all to you…

  1. What a sweet little bouquet in the china boot. Forget me nots are so sweet and dainty anyway. Ironically, I had forgotten all about how much I love them 🙂
    Happy T day!

  2. What sweet flowers! And you have displayed them so beautifully in that darling boot and lovely lady with a basket (she seems to have been made just for your forget-me-nots). And those Japanese painted ferns are spectacular. I’m not sure if they will grow here but I plan to look for them in the garden shops. I will also be on the hunt for a lady with a basket figure. Can’t wait to see your finished tea cup book!

  3. Your forget-me-nots are just lovely and even more so in the way you have displayed them. The decorated tea pot/cup and other cup with the same motif are pretty. Your love of these flowers is certainly evident! Looking forward to seeing your cup book finished!

  5. I forget to plant the Forget-Me -Not’s and I don’t know because they are so pretty . Your’s are great and I love all of the ways you have displayed them … Just when I decide to purge some of my tiny vases and what not’s you show me a new use for them so out of the donation box they come 🙂

    Lovely as usual dear Patty….one can’t go wrong with flowers & teacups now can they?? Forget-Me-Not’s were one of my Mom’s favorite. Mine did not come back this year….will hopefully replant next year. Thanks for sharing your lovely pictures.

You know i don’t think i have ever seen forgetmenots before… So little and cute… And that tea cup spread using your own photo is just ingenious and a great way to use your photos… I must file that idea away because i love taking photos then wonder what to do with them…lol Happy Tday Patti Hugs! deb

  17. Now I know why your posts are so popular. Your art always inspires me, but I never realized that I don’t use all my space. Your latest tea cup is simply adorable. Your china boot, your tea pot with the flowers superimposed, and, as always, your photography makes for one really great post.

    Thank your for sharing your forge-me-not inspired art with us for T this Tuesday!

  24. Really lovely, heart-warming pics again, Patty. Forget-me-nots are one of my favourite flowers with their innocent and delicate little faces. I love your journal with the flower photos and the Byron quote. The little china boot looks so pretty too – and that lovely tea-cup of your mother-in-law’s. Blue just has to be my favourite colour and this is a lovely blue post! I thoroughly enjoyed it. xxx

  25. I love forget-me-nots and loved them in our garden. Unfortunately my DH (who was the gardener) absolutely hated them and waged war on them every chance he got. Nice to be reminded of how pretty they are!

    I love your forget-me-not photos – they really are the prettiest flowers and you’ve captured them beautifully is these lovely photos – the little boot is totally delightful. I also love the teacup cards – such a lovely idea and the stamp is perfect on it! Such a lovely and inspiring blog post.

  31. Oh I love them all your lovely photos of these nice little blue flowers we call Vergißmeinnicht and it means the same like forget-me-not. We had a lot of them in our garden since many years. If you will let them spread out their seeds you will have an ocean of forget-me-not’s next year. It is a joy for the eyes when they bloom in spring. Your teacup journal looks very nice as well as your real teacup with the forget-me-not’s. I like also the japanese lady and the little boot filled with flowers, a lot of little eyecatcher.
