Hello everyone! I hope your ready to see lots of pictures! I wanted to post something fun to show you, I’m not all work and no play! Ha-ha! I LOVE FLOWERS! Who doesn’t! I was going through my picture gallery and realized! Wow! I have made lots of flower arrangements since we moved into our new home! I love both real, dried and faux flowers. Flowers to me can become a focal point, they can brighten up a room and set a mood your trying to create. So enjoy!
Dale found these pine branches and ask if I wanted them? I said yes! No cost and from nature.
Carnations are the most inexpensive flowers you can purchase.

Dried Pepper Stems
I love these delicate dried pepper stems, displayed in the guest bedroom shelf.
More dried pepper stems in a small crock.
I purposely planted Zinnias in my garden for cut flowers.
Fourth of July Flower Arrangement
The greenery you see is from a small tree we trimmed. I just could not throw away, so in they went with the crepe myrtles.
Shelf in the guest bedroom. The cake topper you see was a gift from our wedding. It represents summer weddings. The jewelry box was mine when I was a child. Thank you mom so much for holding on to this! The mini lantern belongs to Dale’s grandmother. The vintage recipe box was given to me from my mother. I remember looking inside this box when I was young at the recipes. I was really being nosy!
This vase is one of my smallest 3 1/2 inches. Good for my tiny zinnias.
Flowers and herbs from my garden.
I always have some kind of flower arrangements displayed somewhere in my home. Cotton stems are now displayed on my gallery wall.
One morning while in my garden I thought to myself, I am going to collect the pink zinnias today! I then displayed them in my tea pot.
I hope you had fun looking through the pictures of my flower arrangements. I don’t fret to much when making the arrangements. I put the flowers in a vase and move them around a bit and let them be. Sometimes I put a book or a décor piece near, to compliment the arrangement. I believe in keeping it simple.
