This Weekend ~ Flowers in the House

Happy Monday morning, dear friends.
 
This weekend we enjoyed some rain, thunderstorms, wind, dark clouds, and cooler temperatures. ~sigh~ A welcomed break from the summertime heat! I spent the majority of my weekend at my sewing machine piecing a quilt top {} and I also created a canvas art piece for a special someone's birthday.
 
Rather than my normal weekend recap this morning, I'm joining in with my friend {Flower}Jane over at Small But Charming for a link-up-get-together she calls "Flowers in The House."
 
 
Someday I will have a flower garden robust enough that I can pick my own flowers to bring inside. Until then, I'll continue grabbing whatever is available at my local grocery store. This bright and cheery bouquet was just what we needed to balance out the dark and dreary outdoor weather! And I was happy to finally use one of the mason jars I recently painted {more on that later this week...}.
 
 
These "flowers in my house" were lovely while they lasted, but today they'll turn into "flowers in the office" because these are actually for a work friend who's celebrating her birthday. :o)
 

Not to be stingy or anything, but I did keep some for myself to enjoy at home this week...


How about you? Are you enjoying flowers in your house this week?
When is the last time you treated yourself to a cheery bouquet?
I think you're worth it!
 
Hey, so why not head on over and say hi to Jane and check out the beautiful flowers in her house? She has an amazing garden that allows for clipping and bringing inside - no grocery store flower fare for her! {And I love that she included oregano in her bouquets this month!} It's also a great day to check out the links on her blog and enjoy a lovely skip around the planet to see what others have blooming in vases in their homes. Have a lovely week everyone!

So glad you joined in. Your flowers are bright and cheery indeed.

Frankly longing for some dreary weather here.

I want soup! Ah well September.

In the meantime I'm enjoying traveling from house to house, country to county looking at all the flowers.

Lovely flowers for a dark and dreary day indeed!

So pretty! I have to say, I have flowers in the house right now. The hubs buys them for me every Monday. I'm a lucky girl!

Audrey said...

I don't have any flowers at the moment although I will be buying some this week for my little one's birthday party. Your mason jar looks AMAZING!!!!

Alicia said...

Summer flowers and colours!

Miriam said...

So bright, I love red & Yellow flowers together. I have some bright red Gladioli, some lavender coloured Gladioli which I have never seen before and some very pretty sky blue scabious which are not only lovely but I am hoping they will work for Rindas colours for week 7 of The colour of Summer.

I've never seen a bright red Mason jar. What fun! Great idea.

Amelia said...

Oh, these are so bright! Summer!

Your arrangement has brightened up my grey winter day! x

Sarah said...

I love how bright and cheery your flowers are. Those daisies are amazing. As soon as we get them in the shop, they are snatched up!

and the first thing I noticed was that awesome jar! oh my gosh, I need one.

I very much enjoyed visiting. :)

Love the primary colors!! I'm usually a pink and blue girl, but these are blazingly pretty!

So cheerful, I'm sure your work friend will be very happy! I absolutely love the bright red jar! What sort of paint is best for painting glass? I'll keep an eye on the blog and maybe find out.....

Lovely bright summer flowers in a great red jar. I should do a red jar. Wonderful!

Margaret said...

No flowers. But I am enjoying my beloved tomatoes, and now I have onions too. Plus basil.

Amy said...

I like to have flowers in the house but I am fussy because so many varieties make me sneeze - so, I don't have them all the time.
Looking forward to seeing how you converted the mason jars.

I was given a couple of joyous gerberas from my son as part of his infant school leaving assembly. Yours are absolutely beautiful - so colourful!

alexa said...

That red jar is a stunning and eye-catching foil for your lovely flowers ...

What a cool meme. Might check it out next week.

Beautiful! I shall check it out as well. I have a huge vase of hydrangeas on the dining room table, and three vases of cut flowers---two in the living room and one in the kitchen. They're all from my garden which is just wonderful this summer.

Gail said...

What gorgeous looking flowers Deb! I love fresh flowers in the house but somehow I end up coming home without some. (:
