Greetings Friends! Has your weekend been relaxing? Spring is always a busy season here before the weather gets too hot but I try to alternate projects with down time in the garden. I really enjoy gathering and arranging blooms--the simpler the better!
A large garden or elaborate bouquet isn't necessary to brighten the room. Below, herbs & honeysuckle create a lovely and fragrant display on my breakfast table.
A metal grasshopper and thrifted miniature garden tools add a touch of whimsy.
I fell in love with this ornately framed chalkboard and when I saw it was 50% off at Michaels, it had to come home with me. Chalkboard lettering is not my strong suit, so I buy chalkboard stickers when they are on sale. After adding Bloom, it needed just a little something, so I used Simply Tacky to attach this tiny bee magnet. I love that stuff--holds light weight items firmly and is completely removable and reusable!
You may remember the hankie and doily from my last tablescape--remember to shop your home first. Most of the bottles are from my thrifted collection and I found the aqua bottles 50% off at Hobby Lobby. Did you notice the vintage jewelry on some of the bottles? I love decorating with it and collect it from estate sales.
Last but not least, after arranging the bottles, I added roses and rosemary from my garden. Here's another peek at the dining table centerpiece...
I know I'm not the only one who shops my home and gathers from my garden--what about you?
