VINTAGE FLOWER ARRANGER


This is my wonderful, vintage flower arranger. I have had it for a long time. I bought it years ago from a nice lady at an estate sale. This lady's Mama had died and she was selling her things to settle some debts. Since most of her things were from the forties or early fifties, I think this must date back to that period. It is unmarked with only the marks made by the kiln feet, on the bottom. I just love it when It is filled with flowers. It is probably on the list of my ten favorite things I own.

I wish I had a picture with flowers in it but I haven't taken many pictures of my arrangements because even with this, I am not a great flower arranger. I love trying though. I have another metal frog, a round one, which looks to be pretty old. It makes pretty bedside bouquets.

I love this one because the frog is an oval shape and makes it easy for me to arrange flowers in a more pleasing way. It is about 12x8 and nearly three inches deep, so you can make a fairly large arrangement in it.

I hope you post some pictures of your arrangements. I am not much of one, preferring instead to grow them. I did actually pick some surprise lilies today and they are smelling the house up nicely. But not arranged.:(

I'm sure your arrangements are probably beautiful. Don't be afraid to display them on your blog. I understand where you are coming from, though. I think we (the sensitive souls among us) worry too much about what other people will think if we let our creativity out of the bag. Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, by the way. I'm always glad to see a new visitor.

I love floral frogs - mine are all pin ones and glass ones - I don't have any like that one - very, very cool...

What a wonderful color...the frogs are still very popular in the antiquey world, this is unusual with the big dish, especially in aqua.

Eve, I really like that flower arranger, too! I like vintage, and I like green, and I like useful. It sure qualifies.

I want to thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I've been away on vacation, but I hope to have some new posts soon. I hope you'll stop by again.

What a nice flower frog. I've never seen one quite like it. Along with everyone else, I think you should share some of your arrangements on your blog. I'd love to see it with some flowers (pleeeeaasssse!)

If you're trying to choose between local florists to find the best one for you, think on a personal level. It's in your best interest to select a florist who is willing to get to know you personally

Look for a florist with quality products and good selection. The flowers should be fresh, the colors of the flowers should be rich and the plants should look healthy.

I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your blog. It looks like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This might be a problem with my web browser because I've had this happen before.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and interesting,
and let me tell you, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my search for something concerning this.

to fix this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
Thank you!
