A Splash Of Orange …Floral Friday

My friend Jorge is a thoughtful, spur-of-the-moment kind of guy. This week, he brought a batch of orange miniature roses as a surprise, for no special reason at all. He knows I’m somewhat partial to the color orange and I enjoy miniature roses. After savoring the bunch, I wanted to use them in some projects.


I have two small Chinese porcelain vases covered in finely woven bamboo with panda motif. I filled the containers with bamboo palm frond trimmings and added a trio of the miniature roses.


A vintage fan-shaped rack for test tubes has been sitting in storage for a year or so. Yes, it uses actual laboratory glass test tubes. Why not place small bunches of miniature blooms inside each little tube? It’s the perfect accessory for anybody decorating their den in Victorian laboratory style for Halloween.


The pewter vase holds an avant garde splash of shapes, textures, and colors. The miniature roses add the necessary touch of warmth.

The Blue Jay of Happiness quotes writer Charles Budowski. “We are like roses that have never bothered to bloom when we should have bloomed and it is as if the Sun has become disgusted with waiting.”
