I used to do an album on facebook called Sunday Leftovers. It was vases of leftover flowers from our market sales for the week. Recently I haven't had many flowers that were leftover for me to play around with and enjoy in our house. Which is REALLY great! But this week has been very slow for flower sales for our designers and from the farmers' market. It wasn't just us but all the vendors had a slow day, guess people are on vacation as school just got out for the summer. Having a few flowers around the house is really nice but having flowers in every room is not so great from a marketing point of view.
Jane over at SmallButCharming /http://flwrjane-smallbutcharming.blogspot.com/ is hosting flowers in the house today. Here are a few of the flowers in our house.
My husband challenged me to include some blackberries in one of my arrangements so donning a pair of leather rose gloves, there are leaves and berries of the Himalayan Blackberry in this vase. Pretty but dangerous, oh the thorns.
Raspberry sherbert is what I think of when I use these flowers together. Very bright and cheery, good because it has been raining and gloomy so far this summer.
Odds and ends flowers, not artfully arranged but they brighten up a corner of the kitchen and isn't that what flowers should do for us.
A vase of the blues........
So hop over to Jane's house and see her beautiful flowers and all the other great flower people's designs.
