“The earth laughs in flowers.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Ahhh, September.

September is hotter than ever and summer continues with all of it’s fury. Extremely hot days and cool mornings.

Since being been back to school, I’m looking forward to cooler weather.

But… in the mean time, let’s look at pink blooms since summer continues not only in reality, but as a state of mind.

A Tablescape

A natural garden style.

Pink roses

A rustic wooden box and mason jars of fresh pink roses. A favorite!

Looking to make a fresh statement?

Adding a bunch of pink roses from the market is an easy and inexpensive way to add a bit of color and softness.

A home-made simple rustic wooden box with a few clear glass jars as the container is a way to add pretty and it fits perfectly into any decor.

Since pink is in… I’m attracted to every shade right now. I see pink in my gardens and the color just inspires me.

Pink is pretty, and pretty is in!

Brown cowhide and pink roses?

It works for me!

I think a bucket of pink blooms looks great anywhere!

A galvanized bucket full of flowers.

Just keeping it all simple.

A minimalist I’m not!

But a rustic wooden box… less is more!

How about dried floral?

Sometimes it’s the little things.

I love pink roses… it is no secret.

When they are fresh… they are gorgeous and when they are dry… they just keep on keeping on.

I have a habit of going with what talks to me at that moment and I don’t think about it too much. Sometimes it’s the thing that inspires me, which is bigger and bolder and more colorful… and other times it’s the simple, faded, rustic and worn. Like a wooden box filled with mason jars on the table.

Happy Wednesday~
