Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday and welcome to Monday Morning Blooms!
Lidy, Mary and I are chasing away the Monday Morning Blues
and the Winter Blues of January by embracing beautiful
Winter Blues. Yes our common theme today
is January Blues.
Pam is unfortunately unable to join us today;
however, she will be back with us for the next one!
The links and beautiful images to Lidy’s
and Mary’s posts can be seen at the the end of this post.
I must say that my inspiration
for today’s Monday Morning Blooms
was the cover of the new issue of Flower Magazine.
The beautiful shades of pink caught my eye
and I thought how lovely the pink flowers
would look with the blue and white and
give us a preview of happy Spring flowers to come!
I love Flower Magazine. It has wonderful floral
and home decor inspiration.
For today’s flowers, I chose:
St. Joseph’s Lily
I grabbed some of my favorite blue and white pieces
and decided to create a centerpiece for the
dining room table, using one of my staples,
of the large silver tray.
Last weekend I attended an estate sale
of friends who are moving.
My intention was to stop in and say hello;
however, I did find some treasures
such as this wonderful Carolina tobacco jar!
Pink stock roses fill the egg cups
that I have had for many years
from the Bombay Company.
Lilies and alstroemerias fill the medium sized vase
of the trio while the tall vase holds
I am truly like a kid in a candy store
when I am in the floral department of Trader Joe’s.
Pink calla lilies, pink tulips,
pink alstroemeria, and pink stock roses
fill this ginger jar.
It was pretty much all about the pink!
I use this beautiful trio of blue and white
that I purchased a couple of years ago
from my favorite consignment shop
Always Home in Durham, N.C.
It was fun gathering the various pieces
of blue and white to create this centerpiece.
I hope that the centerpiece of
Winter Blues helped you chase away
any of the not so pleasant Winter Blues!
Now it is time to visit my wonderful
flower loving friends!!
