Using what you have

I am very proud of this arrangement.  I made it using leftover flowers from my wedding, flowers I found at garage sales, wooden roses from Joshua's Hands, and a basket I already had.
Flower arranging is SO easy; anyone can do it.  Really.
All you have to do is find a container - basket, bucket, wagon, use your imagination!
Put some styrofoam in the bottom.
Get some fake flowers.  Garage sales/craigslist/freecycle/clearance at Michaels are all great places to score lots of pretty flowers.
Stick the flowers in so they are varied and look full.
Enjoy a pretty centerpiece that doesn't have to be watered and will never die :)


  1. Beautiful arrangement. Very springtime. You're very creative.

  2. Beautiful.

    I want flowers around my home too and sometimes I pick what's outside (Spring is in full force here), but I"ll have to start making something like this because the real one dies after awhile.

    The Lamentations verse is so appropriate. Thank you for pointing my attention to it!

    Today we are feeling a bit seems food are staying down and the kids wanted seconds so that's a huge improvement from two days ago. Thank you

    And I hope yours are feeling much better too.

  3. Thanks so much for the link for iced coffee-I am going to try it this weekend! Blessings! And so very glad to meet a HS grad. And amazingly-you seem to be able to "survive the real world" even talk to strangers and complete a sentence...huh? Amazing.... (these are just some of the dumb comments I have heard over the years, as I am sure your mom can attest to, as well!)
    Blessings to you and again-THANK YOU for the recipe link
