~Beautiful Blue Bottles~

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far.  We are back to rain and cooler temps, but at least we aren't having to endure tornadoes and my thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected in Oklahoma.



I cut some of the blooms from my snowball bush since the heavy rains were making them droop to the ground and placed them in a few blue bottles.  I've been going through and pricing all the stuff I'm taking to Farm Chicks and thought the snowballs look so pretty next to the pale blue.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I love this large wooden tray that I have these bottles displayed on and bought it to sell, but it's one of those things that are hard for me to let go of.  Maybe some lucky shopper will get to enjoy it:-)

I'll try and get a few more photos of some more things I'll be taking to the Show next week before I get it all loaded up, but I feel like I'm running out of time to get it all done.  Wish me luck!

  3. Wow what stunning pictures. I love the snowball hydrangeas and especially in the blue bottles. They would look wonderful in my bedroom and if I was at your show I would buy everything up. You are going to do so well! You have such a good eye for staging your displays. Best of luck to you!

  21. The shade of blue of your bottles is stunning, you can really see it's blue, still it's subtle, perfect with your white flowers.

  22. I love putting flowers in vintage bottles. Your snowball bush blossoms looks great. I can't wait for mine to start blooming!

  23. Oh my heavens! I can so relate to your feelings about the wooden tray. You see, I have a smaller one that I've had for years and currently it is in my garage sale pile. Downsizing really makes you think hard about things. Sometimes I look at it and think, keep it. Then, I realize it has been hidden away in a closet for a while and that perhaps it needs to find a new home. So, I totally understand the back and forth thoughts. As always, your photos are fabulous as well as your thoughts. Good to see you again!!!!
