Flowers and Fun...



What a fun day we had today!

My girlfriend Teri is turning 50 tomorrow.  So to celebrate, Donna and I took her to the Topanga Flea Market.  And we loved it!  You gotta go!  Beats driving down to the Rose Bowl at 6 am!

I wish I would have taken pictures of all the great things the three of us had found.  But I didn't.  I'm a bad blogger.
But here's two things I didn't need, but absolutely loved.

  
$10 wooden cross with a metal heart stapled to it.
I put it on the desk by our front door.


A vintage candle holder.  I turned it upside down and filled it with violas and moss.  $11.  Love it!

But the cherry on my day was making three floral arrangements for a bridal shower tonight.  We used three vintage milk glass vases, flowers from the farmer's market, some geranium leaves from our garden and these cute little chalkboard sticks.  We wrote the couple's names and "I do!" on them.  


And here they are on the table all ready for a celebration.  The vases are from thrift stores over the years, the old wicker tray is from Bungalow and we sell the little chalkboard sticks at our boutique following our class.  And for about $30, we made all three arrangements!  

So the next time you need a gift or a centerpiece for a party, think thrift stores and garden flowers.  They make a stunning combo!

We kept taking pictures of these from every angle.  They were simply stunning -- the pink hydrangeas mixed with the pastel roses atop the old wicker tray.  

I kept thinking, how could anyone be blue while being surrounded by such beautiful flowers?
Not this girl!

God's glorious flowers made my day...
and so did my friends.
