Fun Floral and Herbs Arrangements
I painted this wooden tray a washed robin egg blue by adding water to acrylic paint. It was raw light wood colour. (Sorry I forgot to get a "Before" photo) I got it years ago from a craft store for something like $1. I thought it'd look great with all different jars or bottles in it. I could also use them for flowers and herbs from time to time, and have lots of fun playing with the endless different ways of arrangements.Also I'd like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Maryjane at The Beehive Cottage for featuring my blog on her blog. I've been able to discover so many other wonderful and beautiful blogs which I'd never have discovered otherwise. Thanks, Maryjane. Note: I keep the glass jars and bottles from food and drinks we've had, it's more like I'm unable to get myself to throw them out, so I have a cupboard full of them; all shapes and sizes; ready for "recycling". I like to use them as vases or for giving roses to my friends in. Jars with reasonably wide "mouths" are great for a decent bunch of roses arranged nicely, I tie a ribbon/bow around the "neck" of the jar to give it a nice little touch.
