Hi! Remember Me?
Sorry my posts are so few and far between lately. Summer is always such a busy time and I just haven't had the energy to keep up with blogging. Not sure how the days and weeks are flying by since my to-do list mysteriously isn't getting any smaller. Instead, the girls and I are spending time together enjoying the summer. Swimming and laundry seem to be all that I'm accomplishing. But that's OK, projects can wait - - for now!
Any-hoo, moving on . . . today I thought I'd show you a quick project I finished for my kitchen windowsill.
I gathered up a few miniature bottles from my growing collection. Strolled through the garden to clip a handful of my favorite flowers ( pulled a few weeds too, just to convinced myself I haven't neglected the garden too much :)
Next, I plopped the flowers into the bottles, lined them up in a straight row and then added a stone found on our latest ATV trip just for fun.
Ten minutes tops (ok maybe fifteen with "all" the weeding) and the kitchen windowsill has a new look. It's pretty too! I'm loving it!
I fell in love with dill last year after picking up a bunch at the farmers market. This year I'm growing my own. These are the first to bloom. The combo of yellow and green is SOOO GORGEOUS
- I can't get enough! I enjoy giving them a gentle sweep of the hand every time I'm at the sink. I find the scent so refreshing.
Lakspur in varing shades of purple - again so pretty. The vintage inkwell bottle is a recent find from our first camping trip this season. Oh, and look - - there is the stone I was talking about. I have a fasination with egg shaped stones so I'm always on the lookout for them when were out and about.
"Envy" Zinna's - - someone was spot-on when naming this flower!
Isn't the color AMAZING!
I could look at this flower all day!
So there you have it - Quick. Easy. Pretty!
I love the fact that it fits right into the simple. breezy. casual. style I'm working on spreading throughout the house.
Just for fun, since I had my camera out already, I grouped the dill, zinna and daisy's close together to see how it woud look.
I'm thinking you might be seeing an arrangment of dill and zinna's in the very near future! I'm digging the colors together.
What do you think? Is the combo a winner with you too!
