Playing With Flowers ~ Daisies and Pink Gypsophilia



These beauties 
just jumped into my cart today
as I was going along getting groceries...






After getting all the groceries
put away....

It was time to play!




I spent the better part of an hour 
or more 
arranging and rearranging 
daisies and gypsophilia {baby's breath}.
I should have finished putting away the dry dishes
but
the alure of playing with flowers was too great.
;)


You know how it is...
First you play with them in the sink
cutting the stems and arranging them just so
then
the cutting begins...




Certainly I have to play with the setting
and move each stem around in the vase,
in this case a
Nalgene bottle
because in our Tiny House
I cannot find that vase I bought recently
for the life of me!


I'm thinking I didn't pick one up at 
the local thriftshop afterall
but rather 
I bought one for my son and his bride
when I was back visiting in May as they were 
getting ready to graduate
from college...
Yep.




No matter!
The Nalgene bottle is heavy and perfect for today's
grand bouquet!
Once I began, I wasn't sure if I liked the two flowers together...
I wasn't sure if they were fighting each other
but once I got the gypsophilia short enough
then the bouquet
"worked."


That's when I decided that we needed a little one
in the powder room!
So this cutie patootie came along
plus there were a ton of both flowers leftover.





Happy Friday
Everyone!
