Living Room Vignette B and A


Hello everyone,
It's been hot here for days. I have cabin fever, and when I 
rest in the afternoon, I dream about my fall garden. 
I can't wait until the weather cools down and I 
can go outside and start digging up plants and moving  
them to a more conducive place in the garden.
Being in the house all day, I took some pictures of 
my new fall vignette on the sofa table.
All summer I had the white candles, mercury candle holders
and mercury vase with pear blooms.  Now I have
three vases with hydrangeas drying. 
I follow the decorating rule of "have things you love in your house."
I do love my wildlife artwork. 
When the hydrangeas dry completely,  I will use them in 
a basket in my guest room. There are a few more
still on the plants outside.  This table is a great
spot to decorate and dry my blooms at the same time.
I have a wooden wheelbarrow under the table, filled with 
last year's dried hydrangeas.
 
I have tried different methods of drying the beautiful blooms.
This method has worked best for me.
Fill a vase with a small amount of water.
Remove all leaves.
Put the flowers in the vase and leave them
in the water, until the blooms, are completely dry
and the water has evaporated.
In a couple of weeks. I will be transforming our country
home into my most favorite time of the year.
FALL is coming soon.

Joyously,

  3. Lovely vignettes! Your hydrangeas look perfect there under the print and the lighting from the lamp gives a soothing glow.
