Having a BALL with Daisies. . .

I know that I had planned on sharing my ‘outdoor bath’ with you for my next post.
But sometimes, I just gotta switch things up a little. lol!
I have been anxiously waiting for my Daisies to bloom so that I could share this sweet little wool table runner that I recently completed.

I love wool, aqua jars, and Daisies so when my friend, Amanda offered to share this pattern with me I was elated!  It was a small candle holder so I took it to a copy shop and had it enlarged to make a runner.

I have been waiting for my Daisies so that I could pick a little bouquet to go in one of my vintage ball jars and place in the center of the runner.
Last night myself and a few friends attended a local garden tour.  One of the homes had feverfew blooms in a jar.  My sis said, “Don’t you have these little Daisies”?.  Immediately I thought, why wait?

I picked a few extra blooms to share with my sis and placed them in an enamel German pitcher I bought at an estate sale yesterday.
Why not sit them in the living room next to my cute thrift find Daisy plate until I give them away?

Although they aren’t Shasta Daisies, they still are so sweet!

I love the rustic chippy look of this pitcher.  However, I really debated whether or not to buy it.  Loved it, but it was not cheap.  I dished out $40 for this.  When I questioned the lady in charge of the estate sale as to why it was so much, she said because it was from Germany.  I had to tell myself, “if you want it, buy it”!  I often have to remind myself that this is Utah and vintage items are not as inexpensive here.  Don’t often find the bargain prices that some of my blog friends in other states do.

Lastly, I had to play a little with my Daisies outdoors on a rustic bench I bought at a yard sale last Sat. for $15.  The bench found a new home out on my front porch.

It’s easy to see that I really was having a ‘ball’ with my new runner and Daisies!

Jann, That is the cutest runner ever. I love the jars. I gave my daughter a chippy pitcher like yours in an orange color...she still has it, touches my heart, cause it also goes with a cookie jar that was my mom's. xoxo,Susie

Oh my gosh...LOVE the runner! LOVE the daisies, and love the new bench. I grab them whenever I see them, as they are such great ways to display things.
Also, can't remember now if I commented or not, but was catching up with reading blogs, and sometimes I am on ipad when I do that, and commenting is kind of hard to do, so I don't. But I am in love your your outdoor rooms!!!
XO Kris

Oh Jann, the runner turned out beautiful. And that pitcher is great. I think it would have been hard for me to pass it up too. It is the perfect mix of chipy, shabby, loveliness. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

Hugs and Kisses,
