Year-Ender …Floral Friday

Well, this is the last Floral Friday of the year already!  The last of the unfinished business needs attention.  That means my project list needs closure, too.  I’m glad to clear the slate and ease my mind in preparation for 2013.FF122812b

Some additions to my vintage containers found their way into the house the past couple of months.  One of them is a very heavy stoneware vase with a Japanese feel to it. I wanted to slowly ease away from the holiday season red and green color scheme and go for a variation on red, only for this arrangement.  A small teevee lamp is the accessory for this and a couple of other photos, today.

I really enjoy a lighter mood after all the heaviness of the overdone, December holiday decorations. A light-hearted, bouncy understatement works well in the light green antique flowerpot.

To completely escape the expected, I utilized this vintage McCoy frog planter gathering dust on a corner shelf in my den.  I carefully cleaned the planter to avoid damaging the remaining “cold Paint” detailing.  Small flowers amongst ivy greenery provide a simple, cheerful accent.

I don’t have much use for the vintage Haeger baby buggy planter during the year, but it is a fun accessory for now, in preparation for the iconic “New Year’s baby”. A small, handful of blooms is all that is needed here.

To end the old year and begin the new year on a simple note, I placed this gerbera daisy memo holder in a bed of ivy.  The back of the artificial flower sports an alligator clip to hold a reminder or a photo.  In this case, it looks fine in an old McCoy flower pot just for fun.

I hope you can get your last minute projects taken care of, too.
