The superstitious among us might not be conducting business or undergoing a medical procedure today. The rest of us have fun with days that fall on Friday the 13th. I fall in the latter category.
If Friday the 13th even gives you a slight twinge, never fear, today’s arrangements have nothing inately to do with the number 13. However, I did slightly tilt the camera and crossed my fingers just for good luck.
The Royal Copley salt cellar wallpocket has long been an accent in my kitchen. Every so often it gets an update. This time I decided to experiment with the color scheme. It’s as varied as the shapes of the blooms.
The brass cup is from the “Arlen Trophy Company, Brooklyn, N.Y.” The piece long ago parted with the rest of the trophy, so I can only guess at what it once awarded. A somewhat spartan arrangement that features yellow lilies harkens back to days gone by.
The orange Ikebana dish is simply marked, “Made in Canada”. Even though it is made from semi-flexible plastic, I like the container. The red orchids provide a counterpoint to the greens and orange scheme.
Maybe one of these images will provide the good luck needed to inspire your own creative projects today.
