More Blue Sevres and Stepping Stones Met

For BLue Monday, I would like to show you a pair of Sevre urns on ormolu pedestals. I saw them in an antique shop downtown and I gave them to John for his birthday last April.
They are quite tall, about 2 and a half ft. The store owner gave me a good deal or I would have never been able to afford them.

And John liked them!! Now, don't miss going to Sally's at so you can see and enjoy lots of amazing blues!

It is also Met Monday, hosted by Susan at Today, I have a very minor metamorphosis.

I have been looking for anything to grow in between the stepping stones to the arbor and between the brick floors on the gazebo. I bought 800 seeds of creeping thyme on ebay and would you believe that not a single one sprouted?
Anyway, yesterday, John and I went to Lowes and asked the lady at the plant nursery about what we could plant and she suggested ajuga so we bought some and I planted them this morning.

This is the before.
And this is after. I hope they spread fast.
I like it, do you? But I don't think this will work in between the bricks on the gazebo floor. I need something with smaller leaves. I transplanted a few Irish moss. I hope it grows. But that will be a post for another day. I also bought more creeping thyme on Ebay but I bought plants instead of seeds. I can't wait for them to arrive so I can plant them.
Thank you all for coming by. Thanks to Susan and Sally for another fun Monday!
