WOYWW250 bloomin'


If your curious about why my mess is on display you can read all about it here on Julia's blog and play along. 


So, after the booth I treated myself to an order from wild orchid crafts ( enough to qualify for free shipping) and that box arrived on monday but, there was no time to unpack it as we had more lambs born, on Tuesday after work I started un-packing it and then was a little bit like ah, it's gorgeous but, now you need a new storage system maybe ha ha.


a closer look at the bundles of blooms


This basket stays in the closet, the vintage canning jars on the wall behind this table have a few blooms from each package and then the others are in this shopping basket that I bought from Connie when she closed her stamp store I used to teach in. so, its like an "overstock" blooms basket. The other basket is full of vintage buttons. I keep saying someday I will sort the buttons by colors and get them into the jars and I do sometimes do a few but, its reached an incredible amount of them so, they would not all fit in the jars.
I think I am going to have to keep an eye out for more jars ( taller ones) I have quite a few short jars on the shelf and that would help with being able to put more of them "away but, on display" ( which is the only way I remember to use things) all of these photos were taken tuesday night.

WOW! A busy week you've had.
Seeing any animal born is such a wondrous thing, and baby lambs are so cute.

What a haul of pretty flowers that arrived. Can't wait to see how you use them.

I love the display of flowers, I make my own and it reminded me of the time my desk was overflowing with blooms, gosh it was an awesome sight. They should keep you happy for awhile.

Thanks for visiting.

Hi Stacy, I am totally with you on 'in view, gets used'. Anything in my room out of sight, is most definitely out of mind. Love the colours of the flowers, that deep blue is gorgeous. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #38 xxx

That must be such an amazing experience with the lambing. Hard work. But amazing :)

Loving the view from your desk today - yep, a whole lotta flowers!

Thanks for stopping by mine already. The colour in my shed is inherited from when it was my OH's bird shed - that green is the preferred colour for canary breeders apparently. I liked it too so just left it.
