Grocery store Love.....

Today as I was racing through the grocery store, right by the check out is a refriderator with beautiful flowers.  There was a bunch of roses in the most wonderful muted, faded, pastel color,
 I had to swipe em up.
I have a cupboard that holds all kinds of vases and I particularly love these little glass vases that are held in fine ormolu trimmed brackets.  You can find them actually quite often if you hunt through shelves of antique malls. They are not costly , but have such a romantic French appeal to them.  One was purchased in France and the other two were locally discovered.
The old design advise that everything looks better in odd numbers is true. I also think that 3 smaller arrangements arranged together are more of an impact than all of the blooms in one bouquet.
Oh yeah !!!   4.49 such a deal. How can they grow them for that???
All the finest tools for me. oh yeah...child proof scissors stolen from my daughters backpack. 
Yarrow is running rampant in the ditches and fields here in michigan right now. grabbed a handful of it from the back field. It is so pretty, and the best part is FREE.
3 pretty arrangements
Have a happy Week.

Love the Bouquets you arranged with your Fab Roses 'Score'! I always look for the markdown Flowers so that they are not wasted and can be enjoyed in a Display. It would seem such a shame for them to have been Harvested otherwise! I suppose that is why I've always been a Salvage Enthusiast too, I feel as though I've Rescued Important Beautiful pieces before they were lost and not able to be Appreciated and given new Life again!
