But regardless, I try to have fresh flowers in the house everytime someone comes to view our house and have really enjoyed doing the arrangements. (1st new tidbit: look for the discounted ones!...and I'm starting to learn which ones can last a few days longer once they go on sale)!
I got my first inspiration at the Tour of Homes. I was a docent at Larry & Candy Westbrook's house and I loved the arrangement in their breakfast room. It was a clear glass pitcher with sliced lemons so it looked like a pitcher of lemonade with flowers. So I've done that arrangement twice now, one for me and one for Josh's mom for her birthday. My 2nd arrangement was in a wine decanter and I filled it with grapes in the bottom. Tonight I did my 2nd lemon one and my my first lime one. My friend Beth came over and helped and I think they look great!
Now every time I go shopping I try and find something new and creative to put flower arrangements in. I would love to learn actual flower names...I'm horrible at that but want to learn more!
I've also received lots of questions about online scrapbooking. I wish I knew more than I did but plan to divulge as much as I know asap on my next post! But until then, below are a few pics of my experiments as a florist!
