Well, when I got home with it, I began to disassemble it and recognized that there were a few flowers in the large arrangement that had a bit of life and beauty left in them. So, I picked those out and snipped off the ends and gathered them into a vase.
Everything but the vase is salvaged from Bonnie's cast-offs. The sweet little pink-glass vintage piece of jewelry is attached to the burlap ribbon which encircled the wooden basket. I simply snipped it into two pieces and tied it to my vase.
The colors of the flowers are some of my favorites - soft pinks, lavender, and white. Their shapes are full and feminine.
Lavender lilac or delphinium clusters
Tall, willowy spikes of pale pink and white delphinium
Full, ruffled petals of antique roses
You don't even need your glasses to appreciate such beauty!
I'll take a cast-off like these any old day!
