TODAY'S FLOWERS # 227

The link is now open.

This will be my last post until 2013.
Wishing You All A Very Happy and Peaceful New Year!


My flowers today were bought in four bunches from the supermarket and I arranged them in my grandmother's tureen.












 I was given the tureen many years ago but even back then it was too badly chipped for me to put on permanent display.  I have heard that I can get it repaired but have not come across a place that can fix it for me.  It is over 100 years old.  Looking for a container for the flowers I saw it in the basement storage area, and thought the chips wouldn't show if I put flowers in it.


I am very happy to be bringing a much treasured and sentimental piece out in the open more often.

How pretty the flowers look in your grandmother's tureen! What a great idea to bring out the old tureen and enjoy it in this way.

Beautiful flowers and a good way to display your treasure at the same time. I do love the combination of white with a few red blooms.

Happy New Year Denise, I love the use of the tureen I must remember that "trick". I like the use of un-used items getting a new 'different' life.XXX From Heather and Me.

Forgot to say it has just started to rain hard here in our little bit of England, just in time for our walk to feed the sea gulls on the beach at our favourite bay. Maybe I will stay in the car rather than get blown along the prom in my wheelchair, Just going to collect the daughter and Grandson. XXX FROMM A WET AND WIND BLOWN Margate.
