Pink, Silver and White


As the ranunculus started to show signs of fading, I trimmed their stems and gathered them up into two small arrangements. I just love, love, love the combination of the pink, silver and white on the kitchen shelves.


I also love how their centers look like the little bum of a bumble bee.


What I love most about flowers is their heavenly power to completely embrace you with their intoxicating beauty.


I left the milk glass vase arrangement on the kitchen shelf...



...and placed the mint julep arrangement on my nightstand so that I may open and close my eyes to their mesmerizing beauty.

Simple things are often the most beautiful. You take such lovely photos! Thanks for your kind words...who would have thought that so many of the women I admire feel the same way I do? It's comforting.

Trina, I am a ranuncula lover too. They look a bit like David Austin roses, don't you think?

jules @ The Diversion Project said...

Gorgeous Trina - i do that too when a bunch of flowers gets tired, weed out the makey ones, trim them up and use what's left in little vases and cups. Love the mint julep cup, i must get my hands on one someday!

Bumble bee bums, you crack me up!! :)

Trina, I think you found your calling as a floral photographer! These are absolutely gorgeous - the pink looks so lovely with your silver. Which, by the way, do you polish your silver? I'm aching to do it with all mine but gosh, what a job!
Have a lovely Easter ~

Everything about this vignette is exquisite. Those flowers & their vessels absolutely sing to me!

Your life depicted in each post is so charmed, thankful and blessed. I always feel transported back to a time when the pace was slower and people could linger over life and its treasures. That is why I LOVE dropping by your blog. So THANK YOU for that!! =]
