Flowers In My Home

April 12, 2011

Hi! I’m sharing with you today some photos I took of flowers in my home. I am not overly proud of these arrangements, but I’m just so happy I’ve even been able to experiment with flowers at all. I’m thinking I’ll visit a flower supplier a little nicer than my local grocery store soon which will hopefully produce more exciting results.

As a side note, I recently purchased a camera from my sister that is much nicer than the one I’d been using. I’d really like to get better at taking photographs. I know I have a pretty good eye for composition, but I’m in the dark as far as camera mechanics. Hopefully you guys will get to witness my improvement!

I recently purchased these three milk glass vases at an antique’s warehouse. I love most things that are white so milk glass is a given. I’d rather not admit how long it took me to choose these three out of the dozens available. In the end I chose three with varying heights. Since they’re all the same color and material, variation in their style provides some interest. The “flowers” they’re holding in this photo are actually fake. They came as a bundle at World Market and I cut them. I have no idea what plant they are even supposed to be mimicking. Any ideas?

This is a grocery store bouquet that I bought for my boyfriend that ended up staying at my place. Fine with me! The irises have long since wilted but about a week ago I split the daisies up into three different vases and scattered them around the house. They’re still going strong!

I am really hoping that one of you can tell me what these cute little pink flowers are. They came in the above bouquet. It has needles for leaves that are dropping off rapidly. It took all of those little flowers several days to start opening up. They are just so darn cute I gave them their own spot in an IKEA vase.

My kitty Milo is always very interested in the plant life around the home. This is adorable right up to the point where he starts chewing things.

    Impressive flowers and photos. I wish I could help with identifying the plant life but this much is certain; they are beautiful.

    The pink flower with the needle-like leaves is called leptospermum. I love flowers in the house. Right now it is daffodils from the yard for about a month as the different varieties come into bloom.

      Thank you! I’m psyched that someone knows what those are! They are so adorable I want a bunch more. 🙂

    I wonder if we could do something like what you did with the milk vases for centerpieces at Liz’s wedding? (or yours – someday!) Very pwetty!

      Haha, I’m not surprised that that’s where your mind went. Milk glass is pretty affordable usually. Mine were only $4.50 each, so definitely easy and inexpensive pieces to decorate with!
