Good Morning Sweet Friends,
Hope you had a lovely weekend
and a good Monday!
Ours was very good, we got some much needed
yard work done, watched a really cute and sweet
movie called "Ramona and Beezus", went to a
going away get together for our Music Minister,
which was really neat..... but sad, went to church,
as usual, on Sunday, then spent the late afternoon
and evening visiting at Scott and Megan's place.
It was our kind of weekend.
Well, told you last week I would show you what
I did with the non stemmed carntions I had left
over after DeeAnnna's birthday dinner.
If you missed that post and would like to see it,
I am linking up to Marty over at a stroll thru life,
so if you would like to see other creative
table tops ideas just click here.
Color of the carnations was a bit off here as you will see!! lol
Initially, I just decided to float them in this round bowl
and had them just sitting on the counter, but it was
sort of in the way, so thought............
really need to find something else to do with these
that would look nicer and not be in the way ......
but wasn't quite sure what I could put them in
so I did a lil scavenger hunt of the kitchen and
came up with this...............
My french corning ware bowl, but then it wasn't high
enough so I turned another one upside down and
place the one with the carnations on top, that gave
it the height it needed, so then continued to
make my vignette.
Used a teacup and pitcher, then I always love for things on
the table to have a lil candlelight, so added some candles
but needed more red so added some red fruit since there is
fruit in the wallpaper.
It certainly brightened up the kitchen.
Here it is with the candles lit! Love to burn my candles
cause it just looks so pretty.
The middle carnation was looking sorta bad, so took it out
and replaced it with a candle holder.
Here it is with the candleholder in the middle again,
Do not know how these pics got out of sequence.
Now only one carnation left, so had to redo the
vignette a little! So still enjoying it..........probably
will enjoy it until I redo things for the Fall.!
You know I had to have at least one posterized pic in here!
Have to say I enjoyed the change of the red since
I have been using pastel colors all spring and summer.
I typically use red in the Winter Months, So it was
a fun change.
Just 2 days left for you to sign up for my drawing,
if you are a follower and a U.S. resident.
I extended it until Thursday, Sept. 1, 20ll, so.....
make sure to stop over that evening to find out
who the winner is......................
Cause it just might be you!!! lol
Thanks for stopping in.... always glad
to have you visit anytime.............
Have a Terrific Tuesday,
Love, Hugs and
Red Carnation Blessings to ya!!
