I have been moving things around lately...
and here is where my floral arrangement landed, on the dining room table.
It was in the sitting room,
but was displaced by an arrangement of some blue and white Chinoiserie pieces.
I have to say that this is my favorite floral arrangement of all time!
I have had many over the years...with a large Georgian style house.
But this one is my most recent...though it is about five years old. ha!
Remember, lots of my things have been in storage...and not in use.
I just do not have the need for large floral arrangements in our smaller house.
The baby grand is not with us...nor several tables, etc. that held the arrangements.
I have pulled many of the larger arrangements apart and made new, smaller arrangements.
They pop up around the house here and there.
But this one.
This one is my favorite.
The container is heavy with wonderful markings.
I purchased it at a craft fair
at Shakertown, near Lexington, Ky.
It was so heavy that my friend helped
me carry it to the car.
We took turns.
The container must be made of concrete!
The floral artist was from Tennessee...
and had beautiful wares in her booth that day.But this is the one that caught my eye!
I dust it off with a paint brush from time to time ...to keep it fresh looking.
So, I went from a large house with several large, lush floral arrangements to a downsize with the space for one or two large ones.
That is fine!
I am learning to live (elegantly)...in a smaller house.
(And I actually like it.)
I will save some pics to show a florist for when the time comes to freshen up or remake this very unique arrangement.
This is the conclusion of the domino story!
It started with the coffee table in the sitting room, then moved to the blockfront chest, and ended with the dining room table.
Have a great day, and thanks for visiting.
