Our house is under construction. Where there once was a dated fireplace there now stands a bunch of drywall and screws . . . but soon there will be a sleek new mantel and tile surround. Stay tuned for the big details!
With furniture stuffed against the walls and with wires strewn about, I am craving a sense of normalcy. Maybe it just looks silly amidst such chaos, but I’m trying to savor summer as long as possible by bringing in fresh flowers on the cheap.
As I told you here, I use single bud vases that provide total support for a stem or two of a pretty flower. And as I told you here, I had a great time at the antique mall. I showed you a lot of pretty goods but not the one item I bought:
I’m totally diggin’ milk glass these days and this wine decanter caught my eye immediately. The price tag? $12. Sold! It wasn’t until I got home that I realized it would be perfect for a single-bud bouquet.
Look at these pretty buds! When I think about how the new fireplace is still under construction, I look at this exotic flower and pretend I’m on an island somewhere where people don’t need fireplaces.
Has anyone tried my single-bud vase tip? I’ll have more flower displays to reveal soon. In fact, I just got word that a fancy-schmancy corporate building downtown totally subscribes to my theory. I’ll be sneaking in soon for pictures!
