Throughout the day, as I walk past my rescued flowers, I often stop to admire them. I find it rather soothing ... I guess my brother is right ... I really am a "Flower Child" at heart! Tee! Hee! Hee! Since I've been enjoying my flowers so much, I thought I would share them with you to brighten your day, too.
A bunch of flowers gracing our rescued and refurbished table, in front of our rescued and refurbished kitchenette in our rescued and refurbished dining room! :0) (Hmmm ... I'm seeing a theme here! Tee! Hee! Hee!) I haven't shown any dining room make over pics yet, cos there's still some work to go ... but once it's done, I promise to share. :0) The green walls and white trims have brightened the room up SOOOOOO much! It's amazing what a change of colour can do. :0)
Soft and pretty ... pink rosebuds, some baby's breath and white carnations ... adding a chic note to our shabby chic dining room.
There I was, basking in the glow of my pretty rescued flowers, when I was spoilt with a sweet surprise from a friend ... MORE flowers! Well ... like BEARS ... one can never have TOO MANY! :0) So I did a bit of a vase shuffle and swap ... the flowers above were transferred into a pale pink depression glass vase (that I didn't take a pic of ... OOPS!) and they are now in the lounge room where I'm enjoying them as I watch TV. And taking their spot ...
... my gifted roses ... they are the most unusual colour ... sort of a green-tinged cream outer petal and soft pink in the centre ... GORGEOUS!!
Aren't they pretty? Don't they just make you SMILE?! :0)
OK ... I'm off to play Polly and finish watching "So You Think You Can Dance". As someone who can manage belly dancing and a bit of old time dancing and that's about it ... I love to watch all those graceful energetic dancers ... especially the Paso Doble and the Tango ... smouldering passion on a Friday night ... with a cup of tea! Tee! Hee! Hee! Hope your week has been fantastic and that your weekend includes some time to sit, stitch, relax, reflect and rest. Til next time ...
FLOWERY BEAR HUGS!
