Ordering flowers from a florist is just something I don't splurge on,
but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy them anyway.
I bought this bouquet for $14.99 at Costco,
brought it home, and arranged it for my own purposes.
I heart vintage frogs and would love to collect them,
but for now this is my only one.
I've found they are scarce and pricey too when you do find one.
like this vintage bowl picked up at an estate sale.So here you have it!
Instant flower arrangement for more
or is it less than half the price of those pricey florists.
And if I do say so myself, it has a little more character than
if I'd ordered it from a florist.
Having "character" translated means "Not Perfect" LOL!
But that's not the end of the story.
When the bouquet starts wilting, but a few of the flowers are still fresh,
what do you do?
I can't bring myself to throw the whole thing away, can you?
So I pull the remaining fresh flowers out and make smaller arrangements.
Meet my refrigerator lady, given to me by a good friend.
She makes an ideal container for small clippings from the yard too.
A local talented craftsman or craftswoman made this cute little vase.
1..2..3..no...4 arrangements for the price of one!
