Finishing November …Floral Friday

Because it’s the end of the month and we’re heading into the last month of the year, I wanted to clear the decks of projects.  I had several waiting for my attention.  I’ll showoff three today.

A formal project started the afternoon. A very old Hull R 12-7 basket planter needed to be filled.  I took an uncharacteristic conservative approach with this item.  This is a good refresher floral exercise for me, I think I’ll work a bit more on this type of arrangement to improve my skills.


At one time, the Amer-Indians of the Southwest U.S. made their own pottery for the tourist trade.  I picked up this beauty in the 1990s near the Pueblo of Jemez.  I like to use it sometimes just for fun.  I gathered a couple of handfuls of dried plants, some coordinating flowers and a few small guords.  I got the dry stems in place without snapping off a single piece.

I have three of the Royal Haeger tall Ewer style pitcher floor vases.  It was time to update the ebony glazed one.  I arranged three large stems to accent the color of the container and to enhance my living room.

Now that I’m caught up for the month, the busy time of December presents itself.  There’s plenty of activity for all of us from now on.


The Blue Jay of Happiness has an anonymous quote today. “November is not the only month to be thankful! Every day I find more and more things to be thankful for. Learn, Live, Love Life!”
