Sunday finds


Somehow Friday Finds turned into Sunday finds, but better late than never, right?

Since we’re halfway through the weekend I can tell you that it’s one of those blissful weekends with nothing specific planned. We’re supposed to warm up tomorrow and hopefully all of you poor folks on the East Coast are not far behind. 

Anyway, here’s a bit of what I’m digging this week.

Far be it for me to judge others’ art, but if these are the floral designers to follow in 2018, it’ll be a good year for my personal floral designs, which generally tend more toward “thrown in a vase” than actually arranged. 

Well what do you know? Apparently I’m a trendsetter. Or maybe it’s more one of those even-a-broken-clock-is-right-twice-a-day things. Vertical paneling is going to be all the rage, according to one designer. When we redid the house we actually had the existing vertical paneling in our living room replicated to fill in some new areas because we liked it so much. The construction guys thought we were nuts but we loved it then and we love it now.

Coleus is a great plant that I don’t use nearly enough. No excuses with this guide.

I am convinced there is something magical about shasta daisies. Everyone who sees this picture (I recently shared it on Facebook) seems to fall in love with it. They certainly are a happy flower.

  1. It is pretty nice right now. It has warmed up. I am sitting here after a morning of birding awaiting the rain that is supposed to fall. I have been waiting most of the year for rain that is supposed to fall. I wonder if this rain will appear.

  2. I was married in Feb and daisies were my primary flower in my bouquets. We will be celebrating 50 yrs this year so I guess they were a good choice along with a great man! I have always thought them the happiest of flowers and especially love to put them in a blue pottery pitcher I have and put on my kitchen counter. I too like my arrangements to be casual and to bring a smile to my face.

  3. I definitely agree about the daisies! I love that photo of them playing peek-a-boo through the fence! I’m terrible at arranging florals also, so it sounds like a good year to me too if that style is getting popular!

  4. I love the photo of the Chickering piano. My grandparents had a Chickering upright grand.
    Unfortunately, we could not move it so it is just a memory now. It had the most beautiful tone.
    Lovely memories.
