Hi Everyone, Happy Weekend!
I've had Sunflowers on the brain for several weeks,
and have made a few faux arrangements for the house
in vintage watering cans, baskets,
and now this old rolling French Market Basket
that I keep in the Dining Room.
I had a few of the longer stem variety so I bundled them up
and filled up the basket with tissue paper to keep them together.
My Mom and Sis and I were out the other day having lunch,
and my mom was admiring a basket across the aisle filled with Sunflowers.
She commented on their perfection;
"Almost like they're real."
They ARE Mom.
you had to look really close...
It's amazing how close to nature some silk flowers can be...
I wish I could enjoy the "real ones", but too many allergies
and kitties who like to nibble.
So, I do the next best thing.
Here's a pic of the Botanical Window and grandmother's clock
that I painted several years ago; just in case you're new here
and didn't go through all the angst
of painting a million pieces of furniture "50 Shades of White".
I have more Sunflower escapades coming up.
Enjoy this late Summer weekend,
