I was feeling a little down this weekend, missing Connor a lot, and with the hellishly hot weather, I decided I needed a little cheering up. I was in no mood to trek around the farmers’ market in all the heat, so I took a jaunt to the local Whole Foods. While I don’t usually shop there, I know that I can depend on them for a great selection of flowers at a very reasonable, and sometimes down-right cheap, price.
Not content with one bunch, I bought four, but at $5.99 for two bunches, it didn’t break the bank and practically fit within my $10/week flower budget.
I started out by chopping a few inches off the bottoms of the sunflowers and then arranging them in my old champagne bucket, but they were too top-heavy. Then I grabbed a great old silver water pitcher that I got at a garage sale a few years ago.
It’s probably 14 inches tall and has an enamel lining. It’s so detailed and when I was polishing it, I realized that it’s really a rather nice piece… And I am pretty sure that I paid a pittance for it! It’s hard to see, but the spout has what looks like a little bear on one side,
The rest of the spout is beautifully detailed, as well with what looks like a big scallop shell.
What kind of flower cheers you up?
