photo's by me

over the weekend i picked up some gorgeous flowers for my home. flowers around your house can make such a lovely impact and do not need to cost a fortune either! i bought these bouquets for a whopping $3 each at my local farmers market. yep, that's a total of 6 bucks for all these pretty flowers! #suchasteal. i like to play with different ways to arrange my flowers. this is a different kind of flower arrangement that i like to call a flower cluster. i grab 5 objects to hold my flowers in such as... vases, jars, vintage bottles, water pitchers, brass findings, or even a old can! now let's get to work... 

**how do you typically arrange flowers in your home?? i'd LOVE to know!

-- i bought two different types of flowers. i like to keep my arrangements simple & pretty.
-- i always cut my flower stems at an angle, rather then straight across.
-- i find most of my cool old bottles at the Flea Market... i may be a little bit of a bottle hoarder. 
-- make your own vase: add a little texture to a simple jar, by wrapping a natural twine around the jar a few times & tie in a pretty bow!
-- make a cluster with your different height vases... i like placing 5 vases in a tight circle.
-- and voila!

how easy was that?!

It looks great Vanessa! I love it. I do this sometimes too. My favorite is the jar with the little bow.
