When Life Hands You Flowers You Take Them!

What do you do at the end of your son's wedding and there are tons of flowers dumped out of their vases just laying on a table to be thrown out? 

If you are like me, you snap those puppies up and throw them into some empty liquor boxes and cram them into your car with everything else, including wedding gifts, chalkboards and all the groomsmen tuxes.  
Then hall them half way across the city, you make the valet parker wait while you unload them and try to get them up to your hotel room.
You fill your ice bucket with water and jam as many as you can in it. Then borrow you daughter's ice bucket only to realize that so far you only have a quarter of the flowers you hauled back in water!
I was fighting a loosing battle to get these flowers back home still alive!
Then of course the next morning - we all went to breakfast, then had to return the tuxes.
But I finally got to the flowers and played with them on Monday morning.
But they were beautiful!!!  and I just couldn't leave them there on the table to be thrown out!!
The next day they were all dead!

I hope your having beautiful day!
Remember to water yourself so you don't start to droop.

Thanks for stopping by!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. I would have picked those flowers up too. They look just beautiful on your table. Smart move!

  2. When my daughter got married I brought most of the flowers home too. I paid alot of money for them so wanted to enjoy them for awhile! Your flowers look beautiful!!!
