Bad Summer Weather…Turn to Flower Arranging

This summer is flying by, but the weather has been less than stellar. My daughter said, “Mom, this is my summer vacation, I am supposed to be going to the beach and enjoying the outside” life lesson kids…you can’t control the weather. It has either been hot and humid with thunder storms, or cloudy and humid with thunderstorms this entire summer.

Honestly, in Maine we pay our dues in the winter with horrid weather, we earn our summer. I want cloudless skies and dry heat!!! Fortunately, the weather has cooperated for one friend’s graduation party and looks good for another planned for this Sunday.
To occupy my vast indoor time this summer, I have been playing with flowers. Several months ago, I bought old glass soda and beer bottles, mostly from Boston and Portland. They are so pretty, some are clear, while others are a soft blue.

While I was surfing the web, (because the ocean is too fogged in) and came across this article http://www.hgtv.com/decorating-basics/flea-market-flips/pictures/index.html?nl=HGI_071013_featlink2_&sni_mid=87668&sni_rid=87668.324.2680147&c32=%7bB989BD35-05FA-4145-B8C9-6A9F272A86B3%7d

Although I was not inspired to flip my find, I did retrieve them from the basement, dust them off, and fill them with flowers! I love this look because it gives you a big bang for your buck. One bunch of supermarket or farm-stand flowers goes a long way.
