Is your husband a welder?
If not, do you know one?
Well my husband is a welder by trade, so
what I’m going to show you won’t surprise you.
When arranging flowers,
I like to add the quirky and different
I’m always looking for a sensible, cost effective solution.
So sticking with my rustic and refound sensibility…
and while out scouring in the shop/barn
I ran across this mostly empty
welding rod container.
Well, in all of it’s rusty goodness, I saw potential.
Into the house it went to get a bit of cleaning up
with a soft cloth and a bit of soap and water.
Having these pretty pink roses from the market,
I decided to make a statement on an old rusty container.
To my husband’s dismay the rusty container
not only held the pretty pink blooms,
but it was in. the. house!
I simply added to the inside of the metal can
a tall cylinder vase to contain the water and roses.
I then staged it all with candles and old encyclopedias on my buffet.
I hope you like my post on using the rustic and refound.
“I don’t exist to impress the world.
I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy.”
I think my rusty can adds a bit of ‘wild west styling for a bit of wild west living.’
Thanks for checking in on my blog and story.
