Well on one Goodwill trip my sister was unable to make it and so I brought my daughter along. She's powerless against me and so I came home with more crap than anyone could possibly need. That's ok though because as punishment I grounded myself from going back until I put everything I bought to use.
One of the things I found was this uggo thing:
What the HECK was I thinking?! What's up with the tulips drooping down the side?
When I saw this, I knew I liked the container. It reminded me of an antique pitcher. I think I saw something like it in a Ballard Design catalog or something. Anyway my point is I was going to throw out the flowers. But then I came up with a better solution; make a floral arrangement.
I got the idea from a Lifestyle magazine article I read years ago. It was about the floral arrangements of the stars. In it was this square glass vase with low flowers and a long leaf wrapped inside. I fell in LURVE!
Here's how I went about making a copy on the cheap:
Flowers on death row.
Purchased leaf for $4.00.
Wound that leaf inside this $1.00 Goodwill vase.
Flowers on the cheap. I think they're cute! Sorry about the awful night picture.
So, the moral of the story is: I'm always right! So let me buy all the junk I want!!!!
