Old-Fashioned Flowers


Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday to you. 

I know this may come as a shock, but I bought more flowers last week and thought I'd take a few photos so we could revel in their prettiness together.  Once again, the Stock was calling my name and I gave in to their charms.  I have to tell you, they smell just as wonderful as they look.  I really can't believe it took me so long to discover them.


For some reason, this bunch seems so much fuller and fluffier than the last one that I got...maybe it's a different variety.  I paired them with some chamomile blossoms.  Remember? I showed you those last time.  I think the mix has an old-fashioned quality.  I like the little bit of messiness...as if it was plucked straight from the garden and arranged on a moment's notice.


Along with the ironstone pitchers, I added a skeleton key and an old postcard to give things a little more vintage charm.  And, since it is Texture Tuesday, I layered on one of Kim Klassen's textures...yesteryear.  Which I thought was quite fitting for my photos :)


Well, that's that!  Oh, just a FYI...I'll be back tomorrow for a little announcement.  So until then...

Tricia ♥

  39. Tricia,
    These photos are simply stunning!! I can't wait to get Photoshop for my birthday so I can use Kim's textures. She told me I could use Picnik with her textures too, but I have no idea how to do that. Do you have any experience with Picnik?
    Have a beautiful day.
    Sincerely,
    Melinda
