~Sunflowers~

Sunflowers are such a happy flower and these are some of the last flowers to still be blooming in my garden.

I was out working and decided to cut some and add them with some leaves that are turning color.  I put them in a french galvanaized pitcher on the basket used as a coffee table in my living room.  i like the added pop of color. Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I needed something with more of a flat surface on this basket and am on the lookout for a large french cutting board, but in the meantime this weathered french crate will work and looks great in this room.

I also wanted to mention that I finally started a Facebook page so if any of you want to start "liking" me over there you can go here or I do have a button on my sidebar:-)

  6. Sunflowers are such bright, happy-looking flowers! Years ago, I lived in Kansas, and I loved driving by the fields full of giant Sunflowers. They really do turn their faces to the sun!

  12. I love sunflowers! They look gorgeous in the metal pitcher and sitting on the wooden tray. I had one bloom this year and a squirrel broke it off and ate the whole thing before it even got ripened! Blessings, Pamela
