Arranging Roses

 after I cut 
 I love to arrange
 I am always tempted to buy new things 
for my arrangements
 but nothing says "country" like a blue firkin 
or an old bucket, right?

 I love to do these outside because 
there is easy clean up
 and lot's of space for working

 my preference for arrangements is usually a bit messy looking
 and I love to use lots's of the same thing
 my big decision on Sunday was 
where to put these...hmmmm?


 I don't have many rooms 
so the choice gets narrowed down really quickly
; 0 )

 they ended up on a little table 
in the living room

 fires in the fireplace are done 
now we have flowers to enjoy

thank you for stopping by!

love that you do.....

lots of new things in the shop by the end of the week!

  1. That little bucket is perfect for your roses. It reminds me of one that my grandmother had when I was a little girl.

  2. They look so pretty in that beautiful blue firkin! Thanks for the info on which varieties you have too. I received a little something in the mail today...I'll be posting about it soon.

  3. I'm starting to get a little nervous, my David Austins haven't bloomed yet. They are growing like crazy but no flowers. I hope I have beautiful bouquets like what you have pictured here this summer.

  4. Gorgeous, Kelley! I'm so jealous that you have flowers to cut already!! We just saw the last of our tulips, and as much as I wanted to cut them, I have so few I left them in the yard! After I get back from Brimfield it's time to add the annuals to the garden! That'll give me some color - but nothing compares to your David Austin's. The arrangement is beautiful, and it looks great in your living room!

  5. Your gardening "harvests" are gorgeous. What I would give for the weather you all get! I love the flowers in your living room, but of course, they would be beautiul anywhere.
    a feast for the eyes!

  6. Your cabbage roses are fabulous. How fortunate you are to be able to make a gorgeous bouquet from your own garden. I'll bet they smell wonderful too. So charming, as well, in the bucket.

  7. beautiful arrangement! looks great in the Firkin....
    your LR is looking lovely!

  8. I have several David Austin roses, my fav is Constance Spry. The post is lovely.

  9. There is nothing like fresh flowers in the house to change your attitude about everything! Beautiful

  10. I saw that little oil can collection up there and think it's just darling!

  11. Gorgeous flowers...I just picked a bunch of pinky orange roses from my front "yard" (more like a border)'s kind of therapeutic to arrange them, don't you think?

  12. What a gorgeous arrangement of roses!! You have wonderful eye for this Kelley! Have a told you how much I love your profile pic!

    I hope you will enter my Giveaway from Tina of the Enchanted Home!

  13. Those flowers in that Firkin really makes your home shine!!! I guess I shouldn't be so afraid to cut my roses and bring them inside! thanks for the totally beautiful posts!

  14. Love your beautiful roses in that blue Firkin! For some reason, it truly makes those roses so much sweeter! :)
