Whew! I'm Catchin' My Breath!

Has it been a whirlwind at your house? With Spring Break and Easter, I wonder if the dust will settle just a little around here? A customer came to get this flower arrangement on Saturday.
I just loved how it looked sitting here on the vintage table runner after I was finished with the arrangement.
I think the colors on the 'old country roses' teapot and cup spring to life against the flowers of the arrangement. She was happy with how it turned out. If she's happy, I'm happy!
Have a happy day!
Love, Rachel

Such a beautiful arrangement! I know your customer was thrilled. You're right. It was perfect on your runner next to your sweet teapot. Quick! You better make one for yourself!

That is an absolutely gorgeous arrangment. Is that Wisteria hanging over the planter in white? It's so Victorian looking and lovely.

Oh my...where did my comment go...and why does this keep happening to me...hmmm...this is a test to see if you are saving them and looking them over first like some people do... I am always shocked when they don't appear..

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Nope..not one of those...anyway...I commented on your lovely arrangement and said I wished I could make something like that. Mine always look like a two year old got hold of my flowers...yours is just beautiful.

The Old Country Roses is beautiful, really beautiful. So is the vignette of them with the teapots and the vintage runner on the anitque dresser. I truly cannot arrange flowers so I appreciate other's who can. Would you be so kind as to share the paint color on the wall? I just love it! Thanks so much!
