Hello Dear Readers!
A very Happy Monday to you!
It’s always a great Monday when it is a
Monday Morning Blooms Day!
I am joining my wonderfully talented
Blooms friends, Lidy, Mary and Pam to
bring you some pretty flower inspiration today.
We are enjoying our “Anything Goes” theme
so here we are hoping to give you as much joy
as we have as we share adorning our homes and gardens
with the beauty of flowers.
The links to my flower adoring friends are
below their beautiful images at the bottom
of this post.
A friend recently gifted me a book
by James Farmer, titled, “Dinner on the Grounds”
I was mesmerized by the cover.
Unfortunately, I do not have a
silver trophy to use as a vase,
so I went to my silver storage area
and decided the silver teapots will do the trick.
Off to Trader Joe’s I went seeking
a variety of lavender and purple flowers.
Unfortunately theses days, more often than not,
there are slim pickings with the varieties of flowers.
They only had one bouquet of blue hydrangeas,
so white hydrangeas had to join the group.
Flowers used today are:
Blue and White Hydrangeas
I usually place the Stock flower stems
in an upright position in my arrangements;
however, I am loving the way they cascade
over the teapots.
I have been waiting for the opportunity
to use my very large silver tray on my
new ottoman. So I decided to also use my
smaller teapot to fill with flowers.
We are happy that we finally have
a coffee table/ottoman.
He’s happy that he can rest his feet
on it and I am happy to be able to put
pretties on it! 🙂
The tufted ottoman was purchased from my
fav consignment shop (Always Home, Durham, NC)
It is a Drexel Heritage piece. It originally had
a dated fabric so I had it recovered
in a soft gray fabric.
The very large silver tray was also
purchased from A.H. a while ago.
Hope you enjoyed my book cover inspiration
flower arrangement today.
I can tell you that you will really love, as always,
Lidy’s, Mary’s and Pam’s beautiful creations today!
