It was time for an update on my wreathes around the house
along with some floral pick-me-up around inside, too.
By now if you have been stopping by for a visit with me and my decorating style you have found out that I am anything but conventional.
My philosophy is
Do the best you can with watcha' got!
This was actually a wreathe I had made a quite a few months ago. It had browned and aged out to a wonderful golden color and had also became a home for a little family of wrens but the wrens have flown on and my big white hydrangea at the corner of the yard was showing her signs of the
I will tell you as much as I love spring and summer blooms I'm just crazy for flowers and such, as they turn their golden hues of brown, so you'll see alot of that if you ever visit my home.
I basically broke off blooms of hydrangea with enough stem to stick or weave into my existing wreath.
When I was satisfied with the size and look, I took a pair of discarded blue jeans and cut about 4 strips about 2" wide and as long as the leg on the pants,
Tied the ends of the denim into a square not and wrapped my wreathe.
I also remade the smaller ones
on the side and back doors.
LOL...this ones a little more
whopped and lopsided.
If you're careful you can work your
knots to the front. I think it gives it
a neat look.
I didn't put the denim on this on.
The boys were getting hungry
a pizza run it is.
Yes, that is a Christmas tree hanger.
I have other hangers I just like
You know...Christmas is never really
out of style.
My Mama would most always cut some of her beauties to place on the kitchen table
my Grandma Dorothy always kept a
tablecloth (always plastic) on her kitchen table
a hybrid I am.
My eye always want to see flowers and a tablecloth
atop my table.
Of course, not a vinyl or plastic one.
I bought this one on clearance several years ago
and you can see it was too large but some
knots on the corners and it's a fit.
When I start and arrangement, I put my scissors in my pocket and
I just build my bouquet in my hand.
I bring them inside snip my off the ends at an angle,
place them in a container with water and sugar.
I like to add things that ramble a little like this morning glory.
Some height in the middle is always looks good.
I used some low hanging branches for the dogwood;
you can see a berry has fallen off.
I sort of like that...a few petals sometimes look nice.
a little something for the coffee table
My favorite arrangement came when two country boys took time out from their
Bowie knife, bow and arrow, and rabbit trap making.
Just to bring me a hand full of blooms.
Am I blessed today?
Thank you for stopping by!
