Leftovers to Lovely!

Hi everyone! I rounded up all of the "fresh" flowers I had in the house, they had all seen better days! I thought I'd try to salvage them for a little bit longer. (Click the photo for a bigger pic.)

I started with this...
And ended with this!

Not bad for recycling!
Have a happy day:@)

Today I'm thankful for the most beautiful weather the last three days-mid 60's in November!
It doesn't get much better than that in Philly:@)

  1. Love the new arrrangement. I did a similar thing last week and made an arrangement for the table on the patio. They seem to last a little longer outside on the table.

    Have a great week.

  17. Lynn, you re-arrangement is just beautiful. I'm so proud of you. I have friends that just toss things like this and you will probably be able to enjoy your flowers for several more days. Gobble-gobble, it's adorable!

  18. I have those very same turkey bowls. I have had them for 20 years and just love them as a matter of fact, they are hoping to be on the table this week! I have never thought of doing them in the center of flowers. This is so gorgeous, you must work for FTD!!! I will have to try this. It is the perfect Thanksgiving Day arrangement.
