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.

  21. 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!! :)

  28. 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 ~

  36. 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!! =]
