Woods …Floral Friday

Items constructed from whole wood, not particle board, nor plastics, have a certain luxurious look and feel.  Whether it is the artifact, itself, or the container for another product, wood implies quality. Today, I use wooden objects to prove this point.

The beautifully constructed Havana cigar box contained a tin planter at the garage sale. I brought out the planter and filled it with greenery and tiny flowers. Then placed the arrangement on top of the box. The variety of materials works well together.

A lacquered brass pot with a teak base is a unique container that was manufactured in Thailand.  I decided to use some vintage silk blooms to provide balance.

Another vase from Thailand was turned from some sort of exotic, very lightweight wood. It has been stained and varnished to bring out its deep, rich grain. Three pink Gerbera daisies further enhance the container’s appearance.
