Baby's Breath

Good Morning!

This past weekend our local grocery store had a sale on flowers.

As I stood in the store contemplating the cheerful looking tulips,
and sniffing the rainbow of carnations on display. . . 

the lowly Baby's Breath kept drawing my attention.

So I circle the florist department . . .around and around I went . . .  looking at every cut flower and plant on display.

And still, the Baby's Breath called out to me.  

Feeling slightly bummed that I couldn't find anything more colorful or exciting to interest me I picked up one bunch of Baby's Breath then scurried off to find the rest of the items on my list.

By the time I made it back home I was feeling a little bit better about my decision.  

By the time I had divided up the single clump of Baby's Breath into three different container I was very much enjoying my choice.

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed these simple, unobtrusive flowers.

Plus they will look amazing for weeks and weeks before I will let them dry to be added to a small handful I have already.

What a wonderful, useful flower they are.

And pretty too!

Speaking of pretty . . . 

The flower filled pitcher I placed in my kitchen window was set on top of a gorgeous handmade doily my college friend Cathy sent me just last week.

Isn't it just lovely!  
Cathy's talent has me in awe.  She acts as if it's no big thing but seriously, I wouldn't even know where to begin making something so beautiful.

I thought it was the perfect accent for the simple pitcher of flowers, you know, to jazz it up a little.  I'm loving the look . . . thanks Cathy!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day,

Bye now,

  12. I love decorating with baby's breath. I just added some tumbleweed to a can on the porch, but I couldn't bear to part with the baby's breath that had dried up in the can. I put in on the potting bench just in case I want to use it somewhere.

    Your baby's breath looks lovely.
