Hi my friends,
I have always been a 'party' girl.
Not one that spent the night out on the town, but one that enjoyed hosting parties at my home.
When I was a teen I often held 'boy-girl parties'. My mom was always gracious and opened up our home to my friends.
A game that was a big hit was 'Spin the Bottle'. I'm sure many of you are familiar with it.
Yesterday as I was vacuuming I couldn't help but notice how many bottles I had out on display.
I decided to put a little twist on the game and play,
"fill the bottle".
Out into the garden I went with clippers in hand.
A blossom plucked from a Petunia and a Canna hi-lighted the color of the watermelon in the vintage flash card.
I love the fun summer time images. If you haven't indulged in at least one of these this summer, you are missing out!
I had 5 empty ball jars reflecting in front of my newly found etched mirror, a $15 score. I decided to fill them with roses.
This climbing rose reminds me of a Gardenia blossom.
I had some of my smaller aqua bottles under the chicken wire cloche I made last year.
Hydrangeas were perfect for this vignette.
In the living room small Zinnias found their way under my bell cloche.
I love my sweet fairy spoolie made by my new friend, Joanne.
Of course I had to use some of the bounty of sunflowers and black Eyed Susan's that I have in my garden.
My collection of brown bottles was the perfect choice.
I was having so much fun playing, 'fill the bottle' that I decided I needed to head into the bedroom where I have a cluster of navy blue bottles.
I chose assorted white blooms. Daisies, Phlox, Feverfew, and Garlic chives and then threw in a couple of blue; Mountain Bluet and Morning Glory.
When I was through, I looked around and there were flowers from the garden everywhere I glanced.
A little busy, but fun for a few days.
they certainly brought a smile to my face!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
