Hi to everyone! Is your Summer slipping through your fingers like it is mine? Where has it gone to? I am truly excited about Fall coming though. I know many of you will think that I am crazy but my two favorite seasons are Fall and Winter.
I am a very sensitive individual and I love to feel the changing of the seasons. One thing that I will really miss is my lovely rose garden. I have had fresh flowers in my home since Spring. I cut them weekly, it has been so much fun to make many little small bouquets out of them. They sit in every room of my little nest.
I have shown you a lot of projects that I have been doing lately so I thought it would be a nice change to show you something a little different. Here are a few of my sweet bouquets.
I use just about anything that will hold water to put my roses in. I love this vintage blue-bottle, it make a great vase.
These roses are from my miniature rose bushes. They dry up nicely too. I’m got a great project coming up that I will do with all of these lovely dried flowers.
The bath room even gets a charming little bouquet. I put a sprig of rosemary in it for fun.
I like using some greenery in the bouquets and a blue Ball jar sets it off just perfect.
The more the merrier.
Believe it or not this tiny cherub is a vase and holds some tiny sunflowers. What do you do with your garden picks?
A wooden foot locker . . .
. . . and a great old wooden box. Now what to do with them. Sometimes I just look at them for a few days and Wa La! The inspiration starts to flow. Ig I see something that I really am drawn to I buy it and worry about what I will do with it later. It always works out some way. I know you must think “Where does she put all of those things in her tiny nest” but when you use layering in your decor the home just seems to swallow it up.
One last thing, I have a big THANK YOU to give to . . .
. . . my dear friend Kris Vavra from Junk Chic Cottage blog. She announced that her kitchen was in Romantic Homes special cottage addition magazine. I was unable to find one and she offered to send me one. Well, if you know Kris at all she goes the extra mile with everything she does, and she sent me an amazing sweet package.
Not only did the magazine arrive the next day, but also several lovelies were in it.
She sent this spoonful of friendship hanger. Look at the details. Sweet wings, and lots of great chippiness! I will cherish this for ever, and when I look at it, it will remind me of a sweet blogging angel that went out of her way to send me this thoughtful package when I really needed a big hug from someone. Thanks so much Kris!
