Thought this might be a fun one since we all have things blooming in the garden these days. Can't wait to see what you design!

Really nice Candee, two of my favourite things! Iris and diamonds! Great idea for a theme.I will have to have a go when I get home.
Take care while I'm gone and say Hooroo to Terri when she gets back!

Oh Very pretty Candee! You have great ideas for themes and your arrangement for this one is lovely. Thank you.
The clear vases really show the flowers off, in such a beautiful setting. They are 'arranged' so well, like a mirror image!
I'm looking forward to trying this one, when I get some time. The diamonds are a nice touch too!

Sue, Hooroo to you too!

Welcome back, LOL the "mirror image" is another theme I have planned for the future, was going to use it this time, but actually have another idea for the mirror image one so just called this "twins"
Can't wait to see what you come up with. The sibirian iris really don't last long in arrangements so this one was quite short lived.
We missed ya and am sure you had a great time, now Sue is off on her adventure.

Simply beautiful, Candee. You must be very wealthy to have such large diamonds lying around.:)
I like the idea of twins. I'll try to create something today.

lol, we visit the diamond mines every year in South Africa and I just pick up a few of those baubles. Then we sell them to Michaels for their craft ideas and the can be purchased really cheap, no point going to a jewelry store if you don't have to!
Can't wait to see ideas from everyone, now get busy.

So, Candee, you must be the only one with twins! I might have a go at an arrangement tomorrow, although there is not alot happening in the garden. The red hot pokers finished while I was gone, but there are some bird of paradise out, and i know how much you like pickles on fire!

This theme is harder than it looks! First the matching vases! and flowers blooming the same size, it's a bit tricky!!
Will try something over the weekend if I can.

LOL< LOL< LOL Sue - that is great. I wish I had asked you to post a photo of your pickle before I painted mine, might have come out looking a bit more like a bird of paradise, forgot you actually have them over there!!!

I have a whole suitcase of high heels in an upstairs bedroom. Sorry to say that due to my leg problems I can no longer wear them and some of them are quite nice shoes. So when you are in the neighborhood, stop by and pick out a few pairs for your next project or "night on the town at the cafe"!
