The other day I received my copy of Southern Lady magazine.
It was their Annual Decorating issue.
When I saw the cover, I gasped!….That’s my pretty lidded jar!
The cover, like many covers of beautiful magazines,
gave me the idea and inspiration to re-create it.
So here is my version of a Blue and White Floral Vignette,
right off the cover of Southern Lady Magazine!
Here is my inspiration:
Isn’t this cover truly beautiful?!!
I so love making floral arrangements and I intend to make and present
an arrangement hopefully at least once a week. Hmmm….should I do a Floral Friday?!!
The vignette started out with this lidded blue and white jar
that I purchased months ago from my favorite consignment shop,
Always Home, in Durham, N.C.
I always find such beautiful things there.
When shopping in an antique shop with my sister in Florida,
I came across this beautiful blue and white pitcher.
I thought, this pitcher would be perfect for the vignette I wanted to re-create.
When I arrived home from my Florida trip, I began to gather the items of
vintage books, antique blue and white teacups and saucers
(that were formerly my friend Martha’s), pretty flatware,
and a blue and white bowl for the floral arrangement.
I placed a vintage book under the floral arrangement as it was shown
on the magazine cover.
Flowers of hydrangeas, mums, roses and seeded eucalyptus are from Trader Joe’s.
Since the pitcher was a bit larger than the one pictured on the magazine cover,
I placed a vintage book under the lidded jar to give the jar more height to keep it within scale.
Did I tell you that I love making floral arrangements?!! …. I guess I have . . . many times.
They make you and your home happy. Happy Home, Happy Life . . . or is that
Happy Wife, Happy Life. I will go with both of those philosophies!
Hope you loved my blue and white vignette
right off the cover of one of my favorite magazines.
Do you like to re-create something right off the pages of your favorite magazine too?
I wish you a most beautiful day and wonderful weekend making one smile.
I made my hubby smile big time when he saw that I had shoveled the snow
off our huge driveway!
I hope that those who are in the path of Winter Storm Grayson are safe and warm!
