The year will be half over in only a few days, so it’s time to take care of some projects I planned earlier. I’d brought a few containers to the front of my supply shelf to prioritize them. The plan was to use different attitudes and approaches to finish the arrangements.
I have a handful of bentwood shaped objects that are a lot of fun to utilize. There were three dried lotus pods in the same supply bin that I grabbed to add solidity to the composition. The very old, creamy green pot with hand painted design was chosen to help lighten the overall visual to make it appropriate for summertime.
The small, dark green old planter reminds me of a muggy, hot summer afternoon in the countryside. A person might find a thicket of blooming wildflowers in the protective shade of a large cottonwood tree. That is the attitude for this collection of tall stems.
A small planter, dominated by a pair of lovebirds, is home to a clean, simple collection of blooms bringing out harmonious tones. This compact arrangement brings visual refreshment to a corner of a work area or bedroom.
These have gotten me primed for more summer ideas to work on for next week.
The Blue Jay of Happiness likes to go with the slower pace of a lazy summer afternoon.
