Hey sally, I have the same crystal dish as the one with the 3 red roses. It belonged to my great grandmother and not sure where she got it. I'll have to float somethin in it to show you. What a great idea just floating round. I have lots of crystal and these would look great on the bar? Bling, I hear the sound of ideas flowing!
Now is that last bowl one are they floting in a bit of water, can't quite tell, lovely piece by the way.
that is such a neat way to display roses...
I floated camellias after being inspired by the folks in this forum & was pleased with how that looked.
I think I now have an idea for the last of my roses ...
shame it is now dark & very cold - I would love to run out & pick some things to give it a go.
I am tempted to brave it anyway but my hubby already thinks I am out of my mind.
No need to reinforce that impression.
Hey if he already thinks it they why try to prove him wrong! Just go get them and enjoy a few more blossoms while you have them. Perhaps you can just imagine you are rescuing them from the cold winter weather?
Dalfyre, LOVELY!!!! Simple and longlasting too. Would be nice for a table arrangement with big chocolates around the bottom! Roses, pretty dish and chocolate! Time for some M&M'S, excuse me while I get some!
thanks for the positive feedback guys :)
as I said I would never have thought of it without the inspiration from here.
I have a box of stuff that was my husband's Grandmother's and will have to look at it again with new eyes.
That is where the candy glass came from.
oh that is so pretty!
in Aussie they call white elephant stalls trash 'n' treasure...
got me wishing I could check out the regular church stall up the road - they hold it on Saturdays when I am working.
Thanks Candee. Lovely floating arrangements, they are so delicate and pretty.
Love the Rose and Gyp, where's the wedding? perfect! Great background with the wicker.
Nice placement in the first one. Lovely to see your flowers in arrangements again... keep snipping!!
Thanks - I am waiting for a bit more to snip and then more to share. The gyp is really full this year and I have a pink one and white one, hard to see the difference in the photo, but can see them well in person, come on over and I'll show ya!
Thank you Sally. The glass cones had candles inside. I'm enjoying looking for different glass vases / containers.
My Roses are running out, only a few still flowering here and there, hopefully there will be another flush of them before the end of the season..
love the colour of that middle rose!
the others are nice too but I am obsessed with purple & blue shades.
Not that you would know it looking at my garden, I have reds & oranges, & pinks too...
and come spring lots of yellow daffodils.
Right now it is bitterly cold & my witch hazel is blooming.
Must get some pics & see how it looks in a vase.
Unusual comes to mind :)
Grrr, can't you get some batteries ASAP or better yet, ask DH to?
Been playing with the crystal again, got a rose in late bloom and double hollyhock along with gypsophilia in pink and a bit of russian sage.
one of my favourite ladies at the RSA brought these adorable wee roses in for me today.
So many of my regulars have been extending condolances after the death of my father but I was really touched by her thoughtfulness.
Oh Sally, they are beautiful. Tiny always makes an arrangement so elegant and warm. So sorry to hear of the loss of your father, I know how heartwrenching such a loss is on a daughter. Always keep the fond memories foremost and each day more and more joy will return to you.
Thank you Sally, I was sent flowers from work & my dog training club but this tiny bunch of roses really touched my heart.
They are opening out nicely, must take another pic to share.
This a pic of the flowers from work
cheers - Teresa
I missed out on a vase I spotted in the window of the Salvation army shop, I was on my way to physio & thought I will get that when I head home.
Too late - rats...
today I popped in to buy a pretty plate for my boss and noticed a vase that almost matches one I already have.
Priced at a dollar I couldn't resist.
Wonder if there is anything flowering in the garden - mid winter I don't fancy my chances.
my latest op shop buy, a crystal vase...
only had two peony buds to put in it...
this white has been sulking for several years since I lifted & divided it.
I have a red that can be shifted willy nilly & gives me huge blooms - but the white has a gorgeous perfume so I molly coddle it & forgive the sulks.
